Reviews and Ratings

Lovely strawberry florals on the nose and palate of this dry, zesty BC rose. Perfect for cold cuts, charcuterie and creamy cheeses. OTHER: Josh rated this wine as 100/100 with the following review: Crisp and smooth, great tasting high quality Rose with an affordable price tag. I like to sip on this wine while cooking or on a sunny patio! OTHER: Jane LeFresne rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review: This BC rose is the perfect summer wine. It is packed with fruit aromas of strawberry, raspberry, peach, and lime. Hints of minerality also come through on the nose. Many of the aromas come through on the palate including strawberry, raspberry and peach. This zippy, fruit forward rose would be great paired with a strawberry feta cheese salad or lightly seasoned, grilled shrimp or great on its own. OTHER: Greg Hughes rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review: This rose has a lot going on. Mostly Gamay Noir, Pinot Noir, and a dash of Pinot Gris. The varietals were vinified separately and blended for complexity. The colour is a light bubblegum pink. The aromas are diverse. Red pepper jelly, cherry candy, cara orange, lime zest, sour cherry, plum, and violets. Rich, for a rose. Satisfying instead of really refreshing, in style. Appleskin, plum, pepper, cherry, lime and lemon, and more red pepper jelly. A good wine for the hot weather and the price is right for such a high quality winery. Very interesting and tasty. OTHER: Marlo St James rated this wine as 90/100. OTHER: Dean Engemoen rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review: Made in the style of the Provence region of France. Lots of red fruit on the nose, with a touch of black pepper hiding in there if you give it a chance to show itself. Strawberry, raspberry and a bit of cranberry on the palate. My favorite Rosé from this producer to date. OTHER: Cherie Cole rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review: Fresh and crisp with bright acidity. Aromas of strawberry, peach and nectarine with a hint of fresh herbs. An excellent choice to sip on a hot summer day. OTHER: Colin McKone - Sommelier rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review: A BC rose with aromas of peach, strawberry, raspberry and lemon with flavours of tart raspberry & star berry with lemon following through and it is light bodied, crisp and mouthwatering. An ideal summer wine to be enjoyed on the patio and would pair nicely with a strawberry salad. OTHER: Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review: A delightful rose with vibrant fruit, refreshing crisp acidity and a slight hint of tannin. Medium finish with persistence of lime zest and cranberry. Aromatics of stone fruit, strawberry and citrus zest on the nose and palate. Enjoy this with citrus-infused summer salads, zesty fish dishes, your favourite gourmet tacos, picnics, patios, garden parties or on its own. A spring and summer crowd pleaser and offering great value. @jonsteeves rated 87/100 - tasted May 2016. OTHER: This is a blend of predominantly Gamay Noir with equal parts Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris. You can expect this refreshing and vibrant rosé to offer impressive red fruit tones with melon, citrus and spice. Perfect for barbecued fare: try it with grilled pork or salmon (Vintages Panel, updated). - Community Wine Reviews
