One of the most enjoyable aspects of writing about wine is discovering a new winery that grabs your attention and your palate. Last year I tasted Winemaker’s Cut for the first time and was instantly impressed. I’m glad to be sharing this beautiful rose with my readers.
From start to finish this is a terrific wine. Pro tip: don’t overchill or you’ll lose the beautiful aroma of apple blossom. What made this rose standout for me is that it delivers a beautiful nose, an interesting mix of fresh fruit flavours, a medium body and good acidity. In other words it’s the complete package. This rose is 90% Cabernet Franc and 10% Syrah so expect good structure too. If you’re looking for a new rose to try this spring grab Winemaker’s Cut.
