RKS Wine: Niagara-on-the-Lake’s leaning post 2021 Rosé

The leaning post 2021 Rosé is 100% Pinot Noir.

The nose presents watermelon, raspberry, strawberry and field tomato. A very summery greeting to the nose. The palate is energetic and enthusiastic like some toddler dancing to “Baby Shark”. But giving that simile a nudge, this is no flippant candy cane Rosé. It is a very serious Rosé with firm texture that would be best suited with food. I would pair with salmon kebabs or Portobello mushroom and sweet potato burgers however it has versatility to enhance many other dishes on the grill such as pork loin, goat or even beef burgers. It has definite Pinot Noir pedigree delightfully mutated. But concentrate and pick up the Pinot Noir!

Consume by the end of 2022.
