Church & State Cabernet Blanc Rose 2009

The Church & State Cabernet Blanc Rose  (BC)”…has been made in a white wine style, using 100% traditional red wine grapes, Cabernet Sauvignon.  After harvest, the grapes are de-stemmed and left on their skins to soak under their own weight.  Their natural juices absorb the colour of the skins, transforming it to a crisp pink hue.  Very refreshing, with just a hint of sweetness.”  (winery tasting notes)
This wine is divine.  The moment I tasted it I was transported to a bright sunny deck out in the Okanagan.  I can’t wait for summer.  It does have a hint of sweetness – just about a 2 but not quite in sweetness level.  Think of this as your turkey wine this Easter.
We will be tasting this wine at the March 25th tasting in the tasting room at CJ’s.  Tickets are available at CJ’s.
