VIVANT ROSÉ 2021 VQA Beamsville Bench, Niagara Escarpment
Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer MALIVOIRE
Assessed from a bottle purchased at the LCBO. This tasty 100% Pinot Noir rose is a consistent Vintages Essential winner. Bright very pale salmon pink colour. The nose is bright and gently spicy with fresh, ripe apple-lemon-melon fruit. Dry, medium-light bodied, tangy, refreshing, apple-lemon-cherry flavours with a crisp, unoaked, harmonious finish. This new blend of 88% Pinot Noir and 12% Pinot Gris has 12% alcohol and 2 g/L residual sugar balanced with a hefty 8.5 g/L total acidity with lot number 2022-01-21 on the lower part of the glass bottle. Screwcap closure. The preferred best buy 2020 was 100% Pinot Noir and was released on April 3, 2021 at $19.95. CSPC 498535

TASTING NOTE: A slight, pink-hue greets the eye while the nose takes in strong aromas of strawberry, cranberry and red cherry. It surges over the palate with a racy streak of tart rhubarb and strawberry pie, along with Meyer lemon and passionfruit. This is well paced, well-priced, well balanced and well... lip-smacking delicious from twist top to last drop. The winemaker suggests pouring with rainbow trout and I agree, especially when pan-seared then receiving a generous squeeze of fresh lemon juice. Drink or cellar. Exceptional Value!
