Derek Barnett is the man behind Meldville. This is the first (of three) rosé wines that he has crafted at his virtual winery in Niagara. Here are his notes about this wine:

The 2020 summer (during the pandemic) was in general warmer than normal with enough moisture to give us great growing conditions. The fall harvest continued to be warm and ideal for good maturity of the grapes and intense flavours.

The Cabernet Franc grapes for this wine were harvested in beautiful conditions. After for 4 hours of skin soaking the juice was pressed off giving a light but bright cherry colour. After the juice was chilled, settled and racked in to stainless steel tank for fermentation using a selected yeast. Ferment was cool keeping the aromas and flavours crisp and fresh.
