Few Canadian wineries take rosé as seriously as @malivoire. It was part of the opening inventory and has been subject to ongoing research and development to a point where @malivoire pink portfolio stands amongst the very best wines in the country.

Winemakers Notes

Composition:  88 % Pinot Noir, 12 % Pinot Gris

The nose is a busy mélange of strawberry, white raspberry, Granny Smith apple, cantaloupe, honeydew melon, grapefruit and chamomile.

Tasting reveals a juicy mouthfeel, buoyed by vibrant front palate acidity. Melon, citrus and tree fruit reminders carry to the palate, adding cranberry, lime and lingering watermelon.

Estate-grown grapes were hand-picked at cool daybreak temperatures on September 14th and 23rd, as grape sugars averaged 21.3° Brix.

Vinification:  Estate-grown Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris grapes were hand-picked and pressed immediately, after which the juice was chilled in a horizontal “dairy tank” prior to cool fermentation in stainless steel. 

DRY:  0 g sugar

At the time of bottling, alcohol measured 12%; residual sugar: 0 grams per litre; 6.8 titratable acidity:  grams per litre pH: 3.3

Food Companion:

Enjoy now to 2025.  Serve at temperatures near 11° C with soft cheeses and a variety of fish and shellfish.

A slight, pink-hue greets the eye while the nose takes in strong aromas of strawberry, cranberry and red cherry. It surges over the palate with a racy streak of tart rhubarb and strawberry pie, along with Meyer lemon and passionfruit. This is well paced, well-priced, well balanced and well… lip-smacking delicious from twist top to last drop. The winemaker suggests pouring with rainbow trout and I agree, especially when pan-seared then receiving a generous squeeze of fresh lemon juice.
