Baillie-Grohman Florence Rosé 2021

Baillie-Grohman Florence Rosé 2021

Okay, I have a new goal… visit Creston and explore this emerging wine region.

I needed something to pair with the roasted pork tenderloin with apple pan gravy and When perusing the shelves at Everything Wine, I decided on a rosé. I saw the usual, in the BC section but this caught my eye. I’ve explored much of BC, trying wines from everywhere but I have to admit, I’d never tried anything from the Kootenays. Checking it in further detail, knowing it’s dry in style and made with Pinot Noir grapes, it was an easy choice.

Dark salmon pink, the Pinot skins sat with the juice to macerate for three days, which is quite a long time. It gives the wine its deep colour and flavour. Notes of ripe strawberry, raspberry, tart cranberry and fresh thyme, it also had just a nuance of campfire smoke. The wine was dry and mouth filling, with medium/medium minus acidity. Strawberry, cranberry, raspberry carry through on the palate, with hints of clove and dry thyme.

Did it go well with the pork? Um, yes. Fantastic. Highly recommend.

Time to plan some Kootenay wine exploration…
