Natalie's Score: 90/100

This Rosé has an almost neon pink hue, and is just as vibrant on the palate with strawberry jam notes, even though it is bone-dry. It is a blend of Merlot and Malbec grapes that won a gold medal in the New Zealand International Wine Show. Fun and delightful with a playful sense of style. Fleshy ripe raspberries with sun-dappled goodness. Medium-bodied. Try it with seared tuna or salmon.

Rose food pairings: seafood.

Miho Yamamoto rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

This Merlot and Malbec blend is deep pink with a slight red tinge. The medium-bodied wine is loaded with red fruit aromas and flavors of ripe wild strawberries, raspberries, cherries, fresh herbs, white floral notes and a wet stone minerality. Refreshing grapefruit zest rounds out finish. Can drink now. Serve at 7-10C. Perfect as a patio sipper, lunch al fresco and with appetizers.

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.
