Rosewood Estate The Looking Glass 2017
The nose opens with ripe red currant and strawberries before weaving together notes of cocoa, dried herbs and fresh earth. The palate possesses a beautiful balance of being delectably dry with a crisp acidity and velvety tannins. Fall down a rabbit hole of succulent raspberry and blackberry flavours with accompanying layers of black plum, vanilla bean and baking spice. Very approachable.

Wild fermentation using non-select yeasts. The wine ages for 15 months in neutral French oak barrels. Bottling without fining or filtering.

AWARDS & ACCOLADES
POP AND POUR CALGARY - 89 POINTS
While marketed as a Left Bank-style blend, its foremost component is Cabernet Sauvignon (34%), followed by Merlot (28%), Cabernet Franc (26%), Malbec (8%) and Petit Verdot (4%). Its 15 months in (mostly neutral) oak do not detract from its brightly transparent profile, based around sweet red rather than darker fruits, vanilla bean and sweet clove spice. Despite its measured ripeness it is not remotely green aside from Cab Franc’s hallmark herbals, eucalyptus and parsley and grip tape, and its almost dainty approach to these often-bruising grapes carries over to the palate, where its delicate touch results in a most cultured and elegant Meritage. There is clear skill, in both vineyard and cellar, associated with getting these grapes, picked in this place at this time of their development, to sing this song.
