This wine was fermented in stainless steel to maintain clean, fresh fruit flavours. Leon Millot Rosé was fermented completely dry to ensure that it works well with a variety of food pairings. A small amount of Pinot Noir was blended in to add more complexity. Inspired by the dry rosés of the south of France, a traditional Rhône yeast strain was used to help bring out warmer fruit flavours and minerality.
The nose shows notes of cherry, cherry, and more cherry, with a touch of strawberry and red current and subtle floral and mineral elements. The palate is dry and refreshing with clean fruit and a medium-long finish.
Suggested Food Pairings:
This wine pairs well with salty foods such as cured meats and fish as well as popcorn or potato chips.
