Mocojo 2014 Long Stem Rosé

March 31, 2016 § 1 Comment

Mocojo Long Stem RoseWhen I got started in the wine business, some 20+ years ago, wine choices were Red, White & Pink and BC wines considered a joke and total plonk. The industry has come a long way since then. Not only has it shaken the ‘plonk’ reputation, but it has recently produced the World’s Best Wine (Decanter  2013- Martin’s Lane 2011 Pinot Noir), is the subject of multiple export inquiries, and is now sporting almost 200 wineries. So I have to say that it is no surprise to me when I get a sample from a winery I have never heard of. This the case of the Mocojo 2014 Long Stem Rosé.

Price ~ $18

Score ~ 7.2 Over Delivers

The colour reminded me of some of my favourite Spanish Rosé (Navarra, Calatayud Grenache based), and the nose was brimming with black cherry and strawberry. The palate is fresh and has more weight than I was expecting from a Rosé.

The people at Mocojo totally nailed Rosé and I greatly look forward to the 2015 version.

This is a great pairing for ham, roasted poultry, and yes, paella. Seriously make a fried rice dish but instead of using Soy sauce, reduce some Chicken broth with the rice, add some savoury spices like Thyme, Sage, black pepper, maybe some chili flakes. Make sure you put some peas in it, definitely some chicken and if you can some shellfish.

Grapes ~ Pinot Meunier, Pinot Noir

Region ~ Naramata

Store Section ~ BC

Availability ~ Private stores only.

    I am as big a booster of B.C. wine as anyone but it’s important not to overstate if trying to help build credibility to the wine world at large. The 2011 Martin’s Lane pinot noir (which was delicious) was not the DWWA best wine in the world, it was the best pinot noir in the world under 15 Pounds Sterling (about $25.00 Cdn. at the time). Still a stupendous achievement! Brent – BCPinotNoir.com
