Reviews and Ratings

Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Juicy with refreshingly mouthwatering high acidity. Wild ripe field strawberry, blood orange, savoury, slight watermelon jolly rancher-esque note on the finish. Pair with strawberry summer salad, a grilled chicken breast burger. Tasted the Castaway 2016 rosé in Sept 2017. 88 pts.
Vineland Estates Game Changer The Castaway (2016) is a Niagara wine country rosé at a great price. Vineland Estates has been around for more than 30 years, but was the first winery in Canada to employ an optical grape sorter. The optical sorter allows it to photograph and sort up to 2,000 grapes per second -- a game changer in making quality wine from quality grapes. - Community Wine Reviews

  Best Books of the Year

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.
