The View Winery & Vineyard Rosé Wines
Like all The View’s wines, our fleet of rosé offerings are a true reflection of the estate’s unique growing conditions. The sandy loam soil, hot afternoon sun and cool evening lake breezes play a role in every bottle.
The View’s signature Pinotage grapes are the basis for all of our rosé wines. Our personal discovery of just how wonderful it is as a rosé came accidentally after a winemaker was distracted and overfilled the Pinotage fermentation tank. We decided to remove some of the juice from the tank and ferment it as a rosé. The result, Distraction Rosé 2009 was delicious and we never turned back. It was a very fortunate mistake. Today we have dropped the name Distraction, preferring to highlight the varietal from which it is made.
Pinotage Rosé 2016 is the only one of its kind in North America. It boasts intense aromas of strawberry and cotton candy followed by flavours of pink grapefruit and tart cranberry. A dry, crisp finish and pleasing fruit notes add to its elegance. Pinotage Rosé pairs well with poultry, arugula, strawberry and walnut salad, caprese salad or prosciutto and balsamic flatbread.
Pinotage is also the underpinning of our luscious 2016 Silver Lining Rosé. This luscious blend brings our hearty Baco Noir, and our aromatic whites, Gewürztraminer and Riesling into the mix. The result is a playful patio sipper, with serious credentials. This wine earned a gold medal at the 2017 All Canadian Wine Awards.
Distraction Frizzante 2015
Our Distraction Frizzante 2015 is a crowd pleasing bubbly that we like to call a “party in a bottle”. It’s a delightfully distracting dry sparkling make from PInotage, Riesling and Gewürztraminer. Its the last of our rosé wines to still carry the title of “Distraction” that brought about The View’s first ever Rosé. It’s spicy and complex, with aromas of red berries, melon and citrus potpourri. A zippy , cranberry, pomegranate finish stays lively on your palate even as the bubbles dissipate. Pair it with Duck Confit, Acorn Squash Soup or a Cobb Salad. Get it while it lasts
