What a fantastic rosé – the type that I like – an explosion of fruits on the palate. Interesting blend of four local grape varieties: 30% Castelão, 30% Touriga Nacional, 20% Touriga Franca and 20 % Trincadeira. This rosé wine pays homage to the Portuguese producer’s art to take the best out of each grape in order to create the perfect blend. Smooth and elegant with aromas and flavours of red berries. A nice cotton candy pink colour in the glass. Paired well with sushi. Beautiful creative and colourful label. 12.5% alcohol. 7,4 g/L sugar. This is a new wine available at the SAQ this year (SAQ code: 14676095) at $12.35.

I have fallen in love with this spectacular delicious rosé from the Niagara Escarpment wine region in Vineland. Full of raspberry and strawberry flavours, this is a very fruity rosé. Great choice for hot summer days by itself. My #1 rosé for the 2015 summer.
