Natalie's Score: 89/100

A dry and zesty, medium-bodied rosé produced from Syrah and Merlot red wine grapes. Nicely balanced with good acidity for food, look for bright cherry, red berry and rhubarb flavours on this juicy rosé. Chill and pair with grilled pork tenderloin sandwiches.

Rosé food pairings: charcuterie board, roast ham, seared tuna.

Reviews and Ratings

Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Lovely! Aromas of strawberry, rhubarb, and a hint of orange. Bright acidity on the palate, with juicy berry flavours, and a hint of watermelon, along with some citrus on the finish. Enjoy with summer salads, but also makes a perfect Saturday afternoon on a patio wine.
Carolyn Hetke rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Tart cherry on the nose and palate. Nice tension and silky and smooth. This is a lovely summer sipper on its own or pair with strawberries and cream cheese. Tasted July 2019. www.thewineloverskitchen.com

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
