Rockway Gives Back:
Rockway Gives Back is a way for our winery to contribute to great causes in and around our community. We proudly participate in charitable events and organizations to help with causes that are near and dear to us. That is why we have released our 2020 Pink Ribbon Rosé. This special wine was made with passion and care. This October, we have teamed up with Canadian Cancer Society to donate to breast cancer research and programs. A portion of every purchase will go towards to this great initiative. Every time you purchase a bottle of our 2020 Pink Ribbon Rosé, you’re helping fund innovative research, provide vital support services to cancer patients and help change lives.
This rosé wine was produced from our Estate vineyard cabernet franc. The grapes were harvested and left on there skins for a few hours of skin contact before pressing to achieve the lighter pink hue of the wine. After pressing the juice was cold settled before racking to a neutral 500L puncheon for fermentation. Once fermentation was complete the wine was then racked off its lees to a stainless-steel tank, stabilized and filtered before going to bottle.
This wine has a wild salmon colour with a clear hue. As you swirl the glass, beautiful fruit flavours burst from the glass. Aromas of raspberry, strawberry and pomegranate and soft hints of citrus. This is a medium bodied rose with bright acidity and soft on the palate. These flavours mirror the fruit aromas on the nose, leaving beautiful raspberry, pomegranate notes dancing along through to a medium-long finish.
Food Pairing:Thanksgiving dinner with all the fixing, spinach strawberry and goat cheese salad with pomegranate vinaigrette.
