Haywire Rosé 2010

Haywire Rosé 2010
BC, $19

To bastardize Animal Farm, “All rosés are equal, but some are more equal than others”. Which is to say that in the Okanagan we’re blessed with an extremely high caliber of rosés and they’re the best-priced genre to boot. But that doesn’t mean a few don’t bear down and sprint ahead of the pack once in a while. Case in point is the 2010 from Haywire. For starters, it’s 100% gamay noir, not the cast off unripe cabernet and merlot some folks use. It results in a vibrant, lively wine that balances its ample cherry, cranberry and raspberry notes with a solid dose of acidity which keeps the result from being cloying.
