Our Rosé Noir takes its name (Black Rosé) from its 100% red wine grapes that resembles more a light-bodied red. Our wine maker, Nan, learned to love this style of rosé while apprenticing at a winery in the south of France and has been replicating it with our red grapes, pressed fresh before fermentation. Our heavily pigmented red grapes produce a wine with a lovely, light red color.
This is a popular and easy style of rosé wine that has just a touch of fruit that will remind you of raspberries and a hint of cinnamon spice. We suggest serving this wine well chilled and in the company of good friends, on a picnic, or any time on its own. The sweetness of the wine is well balanced with our cool climate acidity, so it is never overly sweet and allows the wine to match well with food.
