Fort Berens Estate Winery Rose, Lillooet BC, 2009
Readers rated this wine:
Vineyards in Lillooet you ask? I did as well.
Fort Berens owners Rolf de Bruin and Heleen Pannekoek borrowed the name of the Hudson's Bay Company's Fort Berens, a trading post used by gold prospectors flocking to the area 150 years ago. The couple, who moved from the Netherlands in 2005, built an estate winery on their property in the Fraser Canyon where the trading post of Fort Berens used to sit.
The rose is in a word, fresh. It has very pretty aromas of wild flowers and sweet summer berries with hints of cherry and vanilla. It is juicy on the palate, dry and crisp with flavours of tart red berries, sweet citrus, cedar and faint spicebox.
Very nice.
