Fogolar Wines 2019 Picone Vineyard Cabernet Franc Rosé
This single vineyard Cabernet Franc rosé showcases the unique terroir of the Picone Vineyard, located atop the edge of the Niagara Escarpment in the Vinemount Ridge subappellation.
Saigné from skins after 4 hours of skin contact and barrel fermented and aged in neutral French oak barriques, this rosé shows cherries, raspberry, rhubarb, and baking spices on the nose. Layered and textured on the palette with roundness and juicy acidity. Pair this wine with barbecue, tacos, or festive dinners.
Note: this wine underwent minimal handling in the cellar, and as such, may contain a light layer of tartrates or "wine diamonds". While unusual and uncommon, these crystals of tartaric acid are harmless and safe to consume.
