Among the host of premium B.C. wineries, Foxtrot on the Naramata Bench has earned a reputation for very well made Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. They’ve also branched out with a second label called Foxly to meet the lower priced tier. My first experience is with this Rosé. The grapes come from the Okanagan and the wine is made at Foxtrot. This pink is a blend of Pinot Gris with a splash of Austria’s pride and joy…Zweigelt. The latter gives a nice salmon colour to the wine. On the nose I picked up stone fruit and tasted flavours of peaches and strawberries in a fruit forward, dry style of rose. Good acidity and a creamy finish made this wine very enjoyable. This is the 2019 vintage which is for sale in Vancouver while the 2020 vintage is available winery direct.
