Sonnen Hill - Pinot Rosé (Wine Beer) / 750mL
Sonnen Hill Brewing (Caledon, ON)
Made by blending Pinot Noir from Beamsville with the brewery's cherry beer - 'Monty': Monty is a blend of oak and stainless-aged beers rested on Montmorency cherries for three months. The base beers were fermented with a mixed culture, and brewed with lots of malted wheat from Barn Owl Malt and raw spelt from K2 Milling. Pleasant aromas of oak spice, almond and stewed cherries. Dry, with a touch of acidity and delicate cherry flavours. A blushing beauty - The result is a special product that blurs the lines between beer and wine. Bottled still, drink with a slight chill like you would rosé wine to let those aromas pop. Forest floor, spice and pepper aromatics with notes of red fruit and cherry pits as it warms. The palate is subtle cherry, sweet almond and warm spice. Juicy acidity and soft tannins make for a dry, yet quenching finish.
