Bursting with maraschino cherry aromas, and vibrant colour. This is a rose of celebration: easy to drink, juicy and tasty with ripe field berries. Some red currant on the finish. Try it with grilled salmon or chicken.

Rosé food pairings: grilled veggie sandwiches, a selection of mild cheese.

Reviews and Ratings

Craig Kuziemsky rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Bursting with watermelon and rose aromas followed by watermelon, strawberry and raspberry on the palate with a touch of cream on the finish.
Corinna Horton rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Cherry, citrus, and floral notes define a wine that is at once feminine and crisp, and priced under twenty bucks.

The nose bears hints of strawberries and pomegranate, but as a true rose you’ll find it dry, slightly acidic and well balanced, never sweet. It drips with fruit, opening as it warms in your glass under your touch… raspberry, cherry, a whisper of grapefruit zest, the undertone of red current… then a trace of rose petal and lavender.

Try it with a good creamy Brie or Camembert, preferably a triple cream. Also a good choice with a bit of spice, like a mild, nutty Thai curry, pair it with your favorite selection of grilled vegetables or a sassy salmon steak.
Monique Ippolito - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Yummy rhubarb strawberry and somewhat off-dry. Still with some citrus-ey crispness. I call it one sexy bottle of wine! Light-medium body (for a rose), interesting light raspberry pink appearance and a sweet and tangy rhubarb finish. It should pair nicely with spicy Thai meals indeed!
A vibrant rose with bright cherry notes and some watermelon with rosehip. Sofia is the name of movie director (and winemaker) Francis Ford Coppola's daughter. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
