Description

Benjamin Bridge Cabernet Franc Rosé 2018

Benjamin Bridge Cabernet Franc Rosé has a classic pink hue. The nose opens with red currants before leading into complementing hints of sea salt, flint, lime and rose petals. Energetic and round palate that is slightly sweet, dry and has a crisp acidity. Persistent grapefruit and blood orange citrus with gentle cranberry, apple and a dash of sea salt. Unfolds in a long and pleasant saline finish.

100% Cabernet Franc. The fruit grows in Benjamin Bridge's organically farmed vineyard along the Bay of Fundy. Enduring commitment to low-intervention practices: farming fruit sustainably, no sulphites at harvest, 100% wild fermentations, and natural sugars.
Wild fermentation with no additions. Hand crafting this wine with no chemical additions, naturally occurring wine tartrates, or affectionately known by industry professionals as “wine diamonds”, may be visible in some bottles.

A very pretty shade of light pink in colour. Incredibly saline and maritime nose, taking me back to walking oceanside in Nova Scotia. Lime, citrus, and minerality dominate the nose with red currant accents. Bracing acidity with zesty citrus and apple flavours, followed by that oceanic salt influence. Crisp and clean on the finish with persistant citrus and gentle red fruit on the finish. A lovely rose well suited to some fresh Nova Scotia tuna or trout.
