2019 See Ya Later Ranch Legacy Series Rose
Dry and voluptuous with a blast of lingering acidity that gives weight to fruit flavours of pomegranate, strawberry, watermelon, and citrus.
Spring was very warm resulting in an earlier than usual bud break. Good weather continued until Late Summer where it started to cool off early September through November. Being situated high atop of the valley, our Hawthorne Mountain Vineyard was kept free of botrytis due to the high winds keeping fruit relatively dry. 2019 is a big year for Riesling, Chardonnay, and Pinot Noir with later ripening varietals having more of a lighter approach.
Divided into two picks, half of the fruit was picked in mid-September in South Oliver, while the other half was picked in late-October near West Kelowna. The combination of ripe fruit flavours of the south with the fresh acidity of further North to give us a well-balanced, fruity Rosé that struts its stuff without being overly sweet.
