JoieFarm Rosé 2022

Covert Farms Family Estate Rosé wine
The first whiff of JoieFarm Rosé 2022 is an intoxicating blend of field-ripe strawberry and raspberry, dancing alongside refreshing mandarin orange essence. It unfolds with the subtle notes of hay and flower stems, with savoury herb undertones. The juiciness of ripe strawberries intertwines on the palate with the tart acidity and crispness, creating a vibrant palate. Pinot Noir (67%) and Gamay (33%) are sourced from the Hollenbach Family Vineyard in Skaha Bluffs, Sleeping Dog Vineyard on the Naramata Bench, and Secrest Mountain Vineyard in Oliver. Tasted December 2023.
Process: The grapes were picked and sorted by hand, crushed, destemmed, then left to soak for 12 to 20 hrs. Juice was pressed off skins into stainless steel tank and settled for 48 hrs. The juice from each vineyard was fermented separately using carefully chosen yeasts (Brio, Rhone4600, W15) to extract as much complexity as possible. Once fermentation was complete the wine was settled, cold-stabilized and bottled in early January to preserve as much freshness as possible.
