Flamenco is the latest wine from the collaboration between Stoney Ridge Estate Winery and The Tragically Hip. The creation of a traditionally dry style of Rosé was inspired by the lyrics and music of ‘Flamenco’. A lessor known but critically acclaimed track on the band’s seminal “Trouble at the Henhouse’ album originally released in 1996.

The label artwork is a collaboration between the winery and band guitarist Rob Baker, who inspired the original wine label art as a reflection of the song and its reminiscence of Spanish flamenco dance and their signature guitars. A dry style Rosé for those hot afternoons in Spain was a perfect fit for this concept.

Tasting Notes:

A fresh and fruity Rosé crafted in the traditional Provence style with a bright salmon hue. The blending of Gamay and Pinot Noir grapes lend a fresh character to the wine with a forward nose of pomegranate, cranberry, rose water, and guava. The palate is smoothly textured with expressive with flavours of strawberry, rose petal, and white cherry, ending with a hint of sweetness balanced with fresh citrus acidity.

Winemaker Notes:

Hand harvested Gamay Noir and Pinot Noir from 3 select vineyards in Niagara. Grapes were harvested at an average of 21.5° brix and brought in separately and fermented in individual stainless-steel tanks under cooler temperatures. This fermentation process follows the traditional French Saignée method, where the wine is started as a red and allowed to ferment on the skins for a few days, wine is then siphoned off the skins mid-ferment and finished as a white wine. After settling and fining, the final blend was assembled prior to bottling.
