2017 R&D Rosé Blend
"This is serious rosé."

Golden Mile Bench
A blend of estate grown Malbec, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon from Arise Bench.
Fermented 1 month in stainless steel tanks.
Initial investigation into lightly coloured Merlot, Malbec, and Cabernet Sauvignon blend shows savoury aromas of citrus peel, Okanagan cherry, and fresh-cleaned linen. Subsequent random sampling reveals a refreshing, textural palate with hints of almond, Christmas orange, and Rainier cherry flavours. The electric finish suggests another glass should be poured. For research, of course.
