About this winery

Monster Vineyards is a boutique winery located on the Naramata Bench in the British Columbia's Okanagan Valley. The winery came to life in 2006 when the owners of Poplar Grove introduced this fun new line up of wines to the British Columbia market. Raising the bar for fruit-forward Okanagan wines, the Monster wines are fresh, fruity and ready to be set free upon release. Monster Vineyards is conveniently located at the gateway to the famous Naramata Bench wine touring route just down the road...

Notes about product

Overall, the 2016 growing season was long, weathered and embraced by the team. Monster Vineyards is grateful for the persistence and patience of the vineyard crew and Mother Nature, which resulted in yet another fantastic vintage.

Winemaking notes

The grapes were harvested at 22ºBx. Juice from the Malbec, Merlot, and Syrah harvest was extracted from the grapes before any significant skin contact occurred. It was then cold settled & fermented at 15ºC to preserve the bright fruit flavours. 5.85 g/l of residual sugar and moderate carbonation adds both richness & excitement to the finished wine.

Tasting notes

Watermelon pink sparkles in the glass. Rosie has returned for her third release to play on the palate and excite your taste buds! Perk up your nostrils with aromas of cream, melon, and tangerines. Watermelon pops on your taste buds with notes of cranberries, and field strawberries. Prepare the patio! Rosie makes this perfect pairing for optimistic sunny summer days.
