Natalie's Score: 90/100
An incredibly tasting and mouth-watering dry rosé, especially for this price point. Aromas of field strawberries and tiny raspberries. Refreshing as an aperitif or pair with planked salmon.
Rosé food pairings: strawberry spinach salad, roast turkey, veal scaloppini.
Fantastic Fried Chicken Wine

Vibrant with fresh citrus and floral notes galore! Flavours are blissful with mouthwatering notes of pink grapefruit and wild strawberries. A superb light-bodied rosé to pair with salmon cakes or crab cakes. Tasted May 2017 by @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca
|Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
A beautiful rosé, delicate, crisp, refreshing. Clear pink with a copper orange hue. Declared 13% ABV. Great value! Simply delicious and all this at such an unbelievably accessible price point. Perfect for seasonal gatherings and crowd pleasing. Field red berries, meyer lemon, wet stone minerality, spicy white pepper. Pair with lemon drizzled baked salmon skewers atop a crisp summer salad and easily enjoyable on its own. Tasted 2016 vintage in May 2017. 90 points. @BespokeTastings
|Greg Hughes rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
An excellent and uncommon roseto see abroad. It comes from the south of France, Fronton. This area grows some rather interesting grape varietals that would probably catch on easily in a North American market. Particularly Negrette, which has a distinctly stewed character to its fruit.
This rosealready has some more orangey hues to its rosey demeanour.
Aroma and flavourwise, it is very floral. There's petunias, grapefruit, lemon, stewed strawberries, and raspberry jam.
Fun rose at a terrific price! This is a best-buy for value, what it delivers, and a chance for most people to taste something new.
Put this wine with pasta and sauteed peppers.

A beautiful rose at a great price point! Wonderful aromas of fresh berries just picked from the field, lemon, spice, and floral notes on the palate.

Tasted June 16th, 2018. Colour light pink. Legs medium minus. Aromas and flavours of, citrus, lemon, orange peel, pink grapefruit, citrus blossom. Taste dry, refreshing, light body, mouthwatering. Finish medium. A nice appetitive goes with seafood appetizers.
We drank it as an appetitive.
