Le Vieux Pin Winery is an iconic winery located in the heart of British Columbia, Canada. The winery is known for producing extraordinary red wines, with the Petit Rouge being one of their most popular blends. Aged in French oak barrels, this wine features an enticing aroma of dark fruit, spice, and vanilla, which is followed by a rich and complex taste. The wine is made using 100% estate-grown grapes and shows a great balance of fruit and tannins. This wine is the perfect accompaniment for savory dishes such as grilled meats, game, or aged cheeses. If you're a fan of full-bodied reds that represent the best of the Okanagan Valley, the Le Vieux Pin Winery Petit Rouge won't disappoint.
This year’s blend consists mostly of Syrah, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon thanks to a gorgeously classic summer growing season with a balanced crop. Cabernet Sauvignon, albeit in a smaller percentage as part of the blend, still makes its presence known on both the nose and the palate with that unique herbacious, spicy, black currant note. The palate is lively and harmonious and a great balance of fruit, tannin and acid make this wine quite versatile and very food friendly.
