Natalie's Score: 89/100

Vintages Wine Panel: It's brilliant, soft pink with a piquant nose of red currant, strawberry and rhubarb compote. Zesty acidity bolts onto the palate and carries the sour red fruit flavors to very good length. As a sipping wine, it's bracing and tart on the finish. My note: A lovely blend of Cabernet Franc (60%), Cabernet Sauvignon (30%) and Merlot (10%) for this intensely perfumed, bone-dry rose. Lovely notes of ripe strawberries and raspberries. Terrific aperitif.

Cabernet Franc Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot food pairings: pate, salads, cold chiken, leafy spring salad, tomatoes, and salmon.

Bethann McLaren rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Delicious, light, floral and refreshing with lots of raspberry, wild strawberry and a hint of rhubarb. A favourite summer sipper in a gorgeous pale salmon shade!
