Rosé Wine Details
Price: $11.00 per bottle

Description: Due to a demand for a Rosé wine, but a short crop in 2005, we blended wines from both our 2004 and 2005 vintage to create this wine. A blend of Vidal and Baco Noir, the nose of this wine smells like sweet strawberry jam with light floral notes in the background. On the palate, this wine is slightly sweet with lots of fresh berry flavour and slight citrus notes.

Varietal Definition
Baco Noir:
BA french-american hybrid grape used to make an intense red wine regarded by some as a good substitute for Cabernet Sauvignon . Capable of aging, its origins trace to the Folle Blanche and a native American strain of grape. Extensively grown in the cool northern regions of N. America.
Vidal Blanc:
A white French hybrid once widely planted in the south of France, it is more suitable for growing in warm and humid climates like the South. These vines are prolific, producing large golden berries, suitable for eating out of hand as table grapes. When vinified, Villard Blanc makes a fruity, mildly intense white wine (somewhat Sauvignon Blanc like) of fairly neutral and simple flavors. Primarily used for blending.
