Summer Garden Long Table Omakase Wine Pairing Highlights: 2017 Kutatás Pinot Noir Rosé

Our Summer Garden Long Table Omakase is right around the corner, and we are excited to share more interesting features on this exciting and exclusive menu.


Part two of our Omakase Wine Pairing Highlights, curated by Head Sommelier Tracy Marchischuk, graces us in the form of the 2017 Kutatás Pinot Noir Rosé.

Kutatás is a Hungarian term for research, inquisition, exploration, and quest.  Winemakers Mira Tusz and Damiel Dragert found this term inspiring, as it relates to their wine-making venture and shared Hungarian heritage.

The Kutatás’ fruit is sourced from North Saanich on Vancouver Island and the wine is made in Salt Spring Island. What makes this Rosé so interesting is that it spends 10 months in French Oak, Sur Lie.  This wine making technique results in a textured and layered tasting experience, offering hints of stewed rhubarb and strawberry, as well as a buttery pie crust.  Fuller bodied with balanced acidity results in a serious rosé that can hold up to pair with many dishes, including our signature flame seared Aburi Sushi.
