|ROSÉ 2016 VQA Twenty Mile Bench, Niagara Escarpment
|Vintage Assessments Tasting Note
|Day-Glo light reddish pink colour. Slightly sweet, spicy, red candy apple nose. Sweet, light bodied, very spicy, baked apple-plum flavours with a very crisp, unoaked, faintly bitter finish. This is not my preferred style of rose. Has 13.5% alcohol and 8 g/L residual sugar with a screwcap closure.
||Rosé Table Wine
Sweetish Candy Apple
|TASTING NOTE: Featherstone's Rosé has won impressive awards in the past, including double gold medal at the 2014 Ontario Wine Awards. Year after year this sub $15 wine offers a very consumer friendly style that many reach to as their go-to patio-wine. The 2016 shows strawberry, candied watermelon, and baked cherry on the nose. Creamy and refreshing, with cherry and cran-apple persisting on the finish. Enjoy in the sun on a patio, and pair with grilled Cajun shrimp skewers.
