VIVANT ROSÉ 2020 Sustainable, VQA Beamsville Bench, Niagara Escarpment
Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer MALIVOIRE
A REPEAT of the recommended best buy 2020 (**+) was released on August 8, 2020 at $19.95. This extremely tasty 100% Pinot Noir rose is a consistent Vintages Essential winner. Extremely pale faint pink colour, the nose is bright and gently spicy with lots of fresh, ripe apple-melon-strawberry notes. Dry, light bodied, tangy, refreshing, apple-plum-cherry flavours with a very crisp, unoaked, fairly high acid, surprisingly harmonious finish. This terrific blend of 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Pinot Gris has 12.5% alcohol and 0 g/L residual sugar balanced with a hefty 8.1 g/L total acidity with a new lot number 2021-01-26 on the lower part of the glass bottle. Screwcap closure. Now available in 190 stores. CSPC 498535

TASTING NOTE: Fresh, lively aromas of sliced strawberries, watermelon and mandarin orange spill from the glass. It envelops the palate with mouth-watering, tang-infused flavours of blood orange, pink grapefruit and passionfruit riding a laser-like spine of tingling acidity. It's medium weight with good mouthfeel and finishes dry with palate replays--crisp, clean and refreshing. Pour with briny, freshly shucked Malpeque oysters dotted with hot sauce, a pinch of horse radish and a squeeze of fresh lemon. Drink now. Exceptional Value! Oh Canada!
