Overview

 “After a short hiatus, the Patio 9 Pink Spritz is back by popular demand. As a fun addition to the bottle, we have canned some in sleek 250ml slim cans. At only 9.5% alcohol, this wine is fresh and lively, with crisp citrus and red berry fruit notes. Perfect for the golf course, patio or wherever a can may go!” -Winemaker's note

Tasting Note:

This wine is a pale pink thanks to a splash of Cabernet Franc. It has aromas of fresh green apple and candied cherry bursting from the glass. On the palate, are bright flavours of raspberry and sour cherry, and a seamless balance of acid and sugar. It is a great wine to share a toast with or pair with casual fare.

Wine Making Note:

Vidal fruit was harvested from our estate vineyard in October and the juice was fermented at 13° Celsius to retain crisp aromatic complexities. The juice was cold settled for 48 hours before being racked off its lees. The juice was then warmed to 14 degrees and underwent a cool long ferment in stainless steel tanks. The fermentation was stopped early to give us a low alcohol content while balancing the residual sugar and acid. The wine was then racked off its ferment lees and blended with a splash of Cabernet Franc to give it that beautiful pale pink. The Patio 9 Pink was then stabilized and filtered before canning.

Food Pairing:

Bring this along on all of your outdoor picnics and barbecues. It pairs wonderfully with watermelon feta salad, or grilled chicken and vegetable kebobs.
