Reviews and Ratings

Salmon pink colour with a fresh aroma of wild strawberry, red currant and tea leaves.
This dry, light to medium-bodied Rosé has a clean, refreshing mouth-feel, and delicate tannins that provide structure.
Juicy red berries, cherry, white currant and blood orange flavours fill the mouth, followed by red berry tea, currant, raspberry and pomegranate flavours lingering through on the finish.

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.
