Highlighting the very best
of Two Sisters Vineyards
For our June TSV Spotlight wine, we chose our Margo Rosé.
Our Margo Rosé has an enticing pink colour, and represents the success and extension of our Estate grown red wine portfolio.
With a nose of red currants, cranberry and cotton candy, and flavours of ripe berries, cherries and watermelon, it’s no wonder this beautiful rosé earned a 92 point rating and brought home a silver medal from the All Canadian Wine Championships.
As June 13th is National Rosé Day, we thought our stunning Margo Rosé would be the most fitting choice for the June TSV Spotlight.
2020 Lush Sparkling Rosé is a continuation of the Two Sisters dedication to the creation of extraordinary sparkling wine. The 2020 vintage brought abundant sunshine and hot temperatures for exceptional flavour development in the fruit. Made using the Traditional Method, Lush is crafted using two thirds chardonnay and one third pinot noir, then finished with a small addition of cabernet franc at the dosage stage.
The inviting colour is a reflection of this late addition of red wine, as the pinot is fermented without skin contact. Lovely, pronounced mousse and tiny, yet evident bubbles in the glass. The nose is bursting with notes of green apple, vibrant citrus and citrus zest, blanched almonds and hints of red currant and cranberry. The palate has a wonderful acid grip, accentuating the core of fruit. Lush is textured and lingering, as the layers of white and red fruit are complemented by the emerging autolytic character of the wine. A delicious celebration of taste on its own, yet incredibly versatile with food as well; enjoy with shellfish, hors d’oeuvres, grazing platters, quiche, and grilled salmon.
