Clos du Soleil Rose

Cabernet Sauvignon

Similkameen Valley, British Columbia

12.2 Alcohol

Introduction

The name Clos du Soleil, a French term meaning an enclosed Vineyard of the Sun, refers to the rocks, soil, and sun, which together define this very special piece of land where we grow our grapes. The enclosure is the mountain that forms a tall natural stone wall at the back of our vineyard, almost surrounding the cobbled terroir which lends its unique flavours to our wines. Most importantly, our name highlights the long days of sun which pour in on the Similkameen Bench, one of BC’s most unique and promising microclimates. Similkameen Valley, or Similkameen Country, is a wine region in British Columbia just west of the Okanagan Valley. The winding Similkameen river, a tributary of the Okanagan river, cuts a deep path through the mountains, giving rise to a warm, arid terroir with a wide variety of soil types. A range of grape varieties are grown here, from Chardonnay and Gamay to the Bordeaux varieties of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc.


How it looks

A deep and rich ruby for rosé with magenta hues.

How it smells

Made entirely with Cabernet Sauvignon, the wine just explodes from the glass with dramatic aromas of red currant and strawberry.

How it tastes

On the palate, there are flavours of cherry, plum and mulberry. While the finish is dry, the berry flavours are so intense as to seem almost sweet. This rosé will strut across hundreds of picnics.
