2022 Rosé Moira

"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."  Chris Waters, Waters on Wine (Instagram); Globe & Mail; March 22, 2020

Winemakers Notes

Shimmering rosy gold in the glass, a pour offers perfumed and floral scents aside appetizing cocktail cherry, peach, papaya and lime.

With a juicy, plush entry and fresh mid-palate acidity, persisting cherry and peach flavours join pomegranate and grapefruit, and a vibrant lime zest finish.

Hand-picked on the cool mornings of September 9th and 10th from our original Moira Vineyard.  Grape sugars averaged 19° Brix.

Vinification:  Whole grape clusters were gently pressed for minimal contact between juice and skins.  After briefly chilling in a wide-profile stainless-steel tank (resembling a dairy tank) for optimum lees contact, the juice transferred to a standard steel tank for cool fermentation.  The finished wine was bottled in February 2023.

Enjoy now to 2026. 

DRY:  0 g sugar

At the time of bottling, alcohol measured 12.5%; residual sugar: 0 grams per litre; 6.8 titratable acidity:  3.25 grams per litre pH:

Food Companion:

Serve near 11° C with roasted vegetable tart or grilled fish atop garden greens.

Aromas of strawberry and cream soda provide segue to a tang-infused surge of palate flavours with Montmorency pie cherry and raspberry jam to the fore. It’s crisp, clean and refreshing thanks to a persistent linear line of mouth-watering tangy acidity ... Pour as an aperitif to get gastric juices flowing or with freshly shucked briny oysters or prawn ceviche. Paired mine with a cheese fondue that turned out to be a suitable match.
