Reviews and Ratings

Neil Phillips rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

Aromas of wild strawberry, cranberry, rose petal, toast, bread dough.

On the palate, strawberry and cranberry, lemon, cherry, a hint of spice and a slightly fleshy mouthfeel.

Tasted December 2016.
Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Benjamin Bridge recently released their 2011 Vintage Rosé, a beautiful blend of Pinot Meunier, Pinor Noir, and Chardonnay. A classic traditional method rosé, just like they do in Champagne, France, but this one is proudly Canadian and it's guaranteed to capture the attention of anyone that's fortunate enough to try it.
A very faint pink hue, the subtle colour is not indicative of the complex taste, seemingly endless palate cleansing micro bubbles, the medley of berries, brioche, match stick, and of course briny minerality. Enjoy this premium rosé with seafood, summer salads, or any special occasion that commands a quality sparkling wine. Enjoy now or cellar for 5+ years. Tasted March 2015. 92+ points.

Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Brilliant rose gold copper with fine bubbles. This is an elegant traditional method bubbly and a sure crowd pleaser. Meyer lemon, blood orange, baked lemon brioche, rose petal, wet stone minerality and near ripe nectarine. Crisp, refreshing, high acidity, dry, well balanced, well integrated. Pairs well with baked oysters in the half shell, BBQ chicken, and prosciutto with melon. @jonsteeves rated 91/100 - tasted June 2016.
