Natalie's Score: 90/100

A lovely, delicate Niagara rosé that's packed with wild strawberry flavour. Dry and refreshing, yet so mouth-wateringly juicy. Serve as a chilled aperitif or companion to fresh seafood.

Pinot Noir food pairings: salmon steaks, sausages, lightly savoury cheeses like white cheddar or smoked provolone..

Reviews and Ratings

Daniel O'Keefe rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A beautiful salmon pink hue in colour, this Pinot Noir rosé boasts strawberry, ripe red berries, and subtle nectarine and stone fruit on the nose and palate. Dry and crisp with racy acidity and intense refreshment. Summer in a glass! Versatile on the table, more than suitable for salmon, roast chicken, grilled tuna steaks, barbecue pork or ribs, and cool summer salads.
Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Gorgeous colour, copper with a brick hue. Layers of stone fruit, ripe nectarine, ripe strawberry bursting out of the glass with succulent flavour. Medium bodied and 12%abv. Great acidity, mouthwatering and fresh. Well balanced, slightly tart, refreshing and crisp. Pair with a summer salad, or with a citrus drizzled salmon steak. Tasted May 2017. 89 points. Great option for patio and picnic season. Enjoy.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

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.
