Wine of the Week: Red Rooster Sauvignon Blanc pairs perfectly with summer
Naramata’s Red Rooster Winery has long been a destination on the famous Bench. As one of the OG wineries, the wines and look have evolved over the years.
Red Rooster has just launched a brand-new lineup of wines with an all-new contemporary label design. Each design will capture various elements of the winemaking process, from terroir to aging. The labels tell the story of each wine through dramatic imagery featuring anything from glacial rock, soil, vines, macerated grapes, barrels and more.
The first new wines to launch are a Sauvignon Blanc and Malbec Rosé. Both are quintessential Okanagan summer wines and very timely in this heat wave.
2020 Red Rooster Sauvignon Blanc
Clear and bright with an aroma of white peach, pink grapefruit, gooseberry, and lemon balm. This Sauvignon Blanc has a light to medium-body, and a smooth yet refreshing mouthfeel. Green apple and citrus notes excite the palate, then as the wine warms, look for notes of juicy peach to develop.
These Sauvignon Blanc grapes were harvested from the Oliver Region of the southwestern Okanagan Valley. The vineyards throughout this region consist of glaciofluvial rock which add minerality and complexity to the finished wines. The grapes were gently pressed, cool fermented and aged in stainless steel dimple plate tanks.
