Bleeding off a portion of juice from each of Culmina’s best Bordeaux-red varietal lots, Saignée is a bright and characterful rosé from select Bordeaux varietal micro blocks on the Triggs’ family estate. Subtle herb and mineral aromas coalesce with nuanced, savoury red fruit to form a classically-styled rosé reminiscent of its bigger Hypothesis sister; one of outstanding vivacity, beauty, elegance, and style.


 


APPELLATION
Golden Mile Bench (100%)

VINEYARD SOURCE
A blend of Merlot (56%), Cabernet Sauvignon (19%), Malbec (14%), and Cabernet Franc (11%),  from Arise Bench.

WINEMAKING
Bled off the Hypothesis must after short skin contact (2-6 hours on average), Saignée is fermented and matured in small stainless steel tanks and casks. (100%).

TASTING NOTE
Green rhubarb, orange peel, and crushed herb aromas are complemented by integrated flavours of clemetine, strawberry, and dried sage. Layered and complex, the telltale creamy and textural palate toes the balance between richness and freshness, savouriness and fruit, for a style reminiscent of Southern-French styles while remaining distinctly "Saignée" at the same time.

FOOD PAIRING
Roasted beet salad with Similkameen honey, mascarpone and smoked pistachio nuts.
