|PINK TWISTED ROSÉ 2016 VQA Niagara Peninsula
|Vintage Assessments Tasting Note
|Bright day-glo red colour. Very slightly reductive, slightly honeyed, ripe plum-apple nose with some cherry notes. Off-dry, light bodied, spicy, tangy, ripe apple-cherry flavours with a zesty finish. Has 13% alcohol and 9 g/L residual sugar with a screwcap closure. Better than the 2015 (*+) released on July 9, 2016 at $16.95.
||Rosé Table Wine
Off Dry, Spicy
|TASTING NOTE: The high percentage of pinot noir shines with plenty of white cherry and a hint of strawberry on the nose. Cherry dominates from the first sip, through mid-palate, and lingers on a medium to long finish. A decidedly versatile food wine, I paired it with fresh jalapeno-laced salsa and rice and bean burritos but it will match equally well with a simple roast chicken and ratatouille with fresh herbs. There's just enough sweetness to balance slightly acidic foods and can stand up to a bit of spicy heat. Score - 90 (Michael Lowe, winesinniagara.com, March 29, 2017)
