"Rosé 365"—that's not just my mantra, but something increasingly understood to be true around the world. Pink wines have never, ever been hotter, and we're now drinking them in every season, not just during summer. Rosé sales and production have been creeping up for a few years, as wine lovers (finally!) cotton on to the extensive variety on our shelves, from dry, ballet-pink Provençal beauties, to watermelon-hued Spanish specimens, to balanced and herbaceous local heroes like Haywire Gamay Noir Rosé 2013 (from the forward-thinking Okanagan Crush Pad), chosen as best of its category in our 11th annual Wine Awards. Juicy and deeply flavourful, you should try it with charcuterie, a Sunday afternoon grilled cheese made with Comté or aged cheddar, or pasta primavera. Your mouth will believe spring has finally arrived—and, in fact, it does exactly that at 3:46 p.m. this Friday.

 

 

 

 

Haywire Gamay Noir Rosé 2013

$22.90 

B.C. +46375

Okanagan Crush Pad is at the forefront of wine innovation in B.C., with superstar consultants Alberto Antonini and terroir expert Pedro Parra helping to define new directions. Light, crisp, and bone dry, this rosé combines the juicy berry fruit of gamay and the savoury, herbal aromas of the Okanagan. Seriously structured and ageable, it's a lovely expression of our unique climate. Its tart finish is perfect for classic pairings like Dungeness crab cakes or succulent pork chops, but also with takeout Shanghai noodles or pork potstickers.
