Karen scored this wine: 100/100

Medium purple colour, fruit forward, cherry, blackberry, with a tiny hint of vanilla on a long pleasant finish. Medium tannins, medium body balanced with a touch of acidity. Excellent QPR for sure! Pair with anything off the grill, even veggies!

Karen scored this wine: 90/100

Pale straw colour. Aromas apple, wet stone, pear, citrus. Flavours of lemon, peach, hint of pineapple. Medium body, mouth watering acidity, balanced with a pleasant touch of sweetness which by no means is over cloying. I don't often buy the same wine twice, but I'll make an exception for this one. Beyond exceptional QPR. Paired nicely with maple Dijon roasted chicken thighs, butternut squash and brussels sprouts.

Deep ruby colour, fruit forward, medium plus body, medium plus tannins, refreshingly acidic. Flavours of dark cherries, blackberries and vanilla. Excellent QPR. Paired very well with grilled Portobello mushroom steaks sided with grilled zucchini, eggplant and peppers tossed in balsamic vinegar. A favourite of mine.
