2011 Kolk Rose - Glacial Lake Missoula Wine Co
This wine is a delicate, crisply acidic rosé. Gamay Noir is the red grape of Beaujolais, and as a rosé , the exuberant fruit that is present in the red wine, is taken down several notches, to make a subtle, rhubarb and strawberry laced wine that will age well, and develop complexity with time in the bottle. Kolk is a geological term for a tornadic vortex in powerfully flowing water that can bore holes in solid rock, as in the Lake Missoula Floods. Kolk rose will rip your tongue out and leave behind a crater of flavor.
