2022 Vivant Rosé

  2023 National Wine Awards - Silver Medal

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:  100% Pinot Noir

A fruity, floral nose brings cherry blossom, Maraschino cherry, raspberry, pineapple and lemon.  Supple and generous to drink, its flavours combine cherry, strawberry filling and zesty pink grapefruit that holds through a mouth-freshening finish.

Estate-grown grapes were hand-picked at cool daybreak temperatures, September 20th to 22nd, as grape sugars averaged 20.9° Brix.

Pinot Noir clusters were hand-picked and pressed immediately, after which the juice chilled in a horizontal “dairy tank” prior to cool fermentation in stainless steel. This was bottled in February 2023.

DRY:  0 g sugar

At the time of bottling, alcohol measured 12%; residual sugar: 0 grams per litre; 8.25 titratable acidity:  grams per litre pH: 3.35

Food Companion:

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

Vegan friendly.
