Cedar Creek Pinot Noir Rosé 2020
April is #BCWineMonth so what better way to start the month than by featuring a newly released, beautiful BC rosé! To celebrate we are doing a giveaway on our Instagram page! You can win TWO bottles of this delectable BC wine, delivered right to your doorstep! Be sure to head to our account to enter... the giveaway closes midnight on April 5th, 2021.
I also want to make a note about how it's more important than ever to #supportlocal and #drinklocal. The Covid mandate in British Columbia unfortunately is really hurting our small businesses, specifically food, wine and tourism. Please consider doing some local wine shopping this month. Many wineries are offering free shipping so be sure to take advantage and buy direct!
Clear, almost translucent, pale salmon pink, this dry Pinot Noir rosé presents with a bouquet of pink grapefruit, orange zest and red berries with hints of rhubarb. The mouthfeel is crisp and light with strawberry, Bing cherry, pink grapefruit and crabapple elegantly displayed on the palate with undertones of spring-like fresh cut grass. Early picking and minimal skin contact mean this rose maintains racy acidity and understated but delicious fruit. Some classic Pinot Noir elegance (ie: sexiness) in the bottle.
Pair with BC goat cheese or prosciutto wrapped asparagus. It would be delicious with BC salmon or spot prawns also... a few local and seasonally appropriate ideas to enjoy with this wine!
