Purity, juicy, pretty.
The da Silva estate is located on the Naramata Bench and is owned by Richard and Twylla da Silva. Da Silva's story begins in 1955 when the family moved from Portugal to the Okanagan Valley--in 1959 they purchased an orchard. Almost 50 years later, in 2006, the family built a winery and today they draw fruit from 11 different vineyards/growers located in: Oliver, Osoyoos, Keremeos and Penticton.
The winery is also home to The Kitchen at da Silva, where a fusion of Mexican~Portuguese tapas is the theme.
This darling salmon pink rose is made from 55% Pinot Noir and 45% Merlot grown on the estate Blenheim Hill Vineyard in Penticton.
Notes of wild strawberry and watermelon are seasoned with tealeaf, peach stone and faint garrigue. The entry is supple, it is a juicy wine with lovely fruit purity. It has a kiss of sweetness and flavours of blood oranges, wild red berries a just a hint of finely ground spice.
