Reviews and Ratings

Gwen Barton rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Check out the cute new label on this pretty sparkling wine. Classic Pinot noir and Chardonnay blend. Ripe strawberries are prominent with soft floral aroma. Love the long lasting, refreshing bubbles. Not overly sweet despite 22.9g/L residual sugar. Fine to drink now- Very enjoyable!
Claria Calderone rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

This sparkling will leave a dazzle! It's crafted in the traditional method, used to make champagne, and it shows. Its like candy on the palate, it's light but perfectly light. On the palate is like a small bouquet with a very nice and sweet ending. On the nose, the fruity aromas of various flavours is what draws you more in. A perfect summer/patio sparkler, no need for mixing with anything as its perfection on its own.
Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Pale ballerina slipper pink with some larger persistent bubble. Fresh picked field berries, citrus,Niagara tree fruit, biscuit and slight pithy aromas and flavours. Good refreshing acidity and decent length finish.
Tasted: January 2016
Craig Kuziemsky rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Lots of bubbles with strawberry and toasted bread aromas and flavors. The palate had a touch of citrus flavor which gave it a nice crisp finish.
This Niagara sparkling rose uses the Méthode Traditionnelle. - Community Wine Reviews
