Sofia

Francis Ford Coppola Sofia Rosé 2017

Monterey County, California, United States
7 days ago

Andrea Shapiro scored this wine: 90/100

A fresh blend of Syrah, Grenache and Pinot Noir from vineyards located in the Monterey County region. Delicate yet abundant aromatics of light cherries, white flowers, strawberry, and scrumptious watermelon. Yellow plum, green apple, raspberries, sugar snap peas and clementine citrus adds a mouthwatering crisp finish. Acidity is elevated but it comes together nicely with the balanced body. Very dry - would be a nice accompaniment to a charcuterie or antipasto. 90 points

Andrea Shapiro scored this wine: 90/100

A pretty pale lemon colour with plenty of stonefruit elements. Apricot, nectarine, white peach. Flavours reveal citrus, fresh green herbs, grapefruit and distinct stony minerals. Brisk, refreshing acidity with a light body and finish. Pair with veggies and herbed dips. 90 points - tasted at the winery

Rosehall Run Ceremony

Prince Edward County, Ontario V.Q.A, Canada
10 days ago

Andrea Shapiro scored this wine: 90/100

An appropriately named celebratory ceremonial sparkler from Rosehall Run. This Blanc de Blanc is made from their own estate Chardonnay grapes, offering a light mousse and medium delicate bubbles. Crisp creen apples, with lingering buttered toast, and zesty grapefruit citrus. Nutty and crisp with a light body. Pretty and dry. This will pair perfectly with a variety of foods or just fine on its own while raising a glass toasting that special event. Tasted at the winery - 90 points

Trius Winery at Hillebrand Brut Rosé

Niagara Peninsula, Ontario V.Q.A., Canada
10 days ago

Andrea Shapiro scored this wine: 90/100

Pink and fizzy with watermelon, white peach, chalk and toast. Flavours indicate a spectrum of strawberries and cherries following with a sustained lees driven yeasty note at the back. Dry, but with subtle berry fruit lingering. Good on its own or as a complement alongside a variety of canapes or herbed fowl. 90 points

Awesome. Love this Sauvignon Blanc from PEC’s Rosehall Run Vineyards. Pale lemon with green apple, melon, grapefruit citrus, elderflower and crispy minerals. Flavours include nectarine, tropical kiwi and a refined elements of grass - without too many overdone herbal essences. Vibrant and fresh with Medium plus acidity and a light body. Try this with cevice or cold seafood salad. 90 points
