Reviews and Ratings

Greg Hughes rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Super fresh and lively Pinot Gris, teeming with energetic acidity. The winery is situated in a sub region, called Lake on the Mountain. Rumour has it that the land was cursed. For years people had tried to plant it to certain crops, but nothing took. Grapes, since harsh/depleted soils force them to produce better fruit, tunrd out to be the sermcret to this unique plot of land.
This rosé is vinified dry, for the most part. There might be just a hint of RS >10g/l or a 1, on the sugar code system).
The colour is a bright pink, with some orange hues to it.
Aromatically, it has a spritz of lemon and citrus, followed by apricot, cherry, and orange blossom.
A whip-crack of refreshing acidity, noticeable on the nose, makes it lip-smacking. Lots more citrus and cherry. Limeade, raspberry, and sweet melon too.
This wine would absolutely sing with deviled eggs and other picnic fare.
The Lake on the Mountain the region refers to is a replenishing fresh water lake that draws water from broken limestone underground. There's a lot of local lore about it and it's also one of the most scenic areas in the County.
Cora Beaulieu rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:

This all-pinot gris rosé is pale salmon coloured. Has lovely and delicate aromas, of mainly, citrus and apple notes. The palate is very light and offers noticeable sweetness. It is a sweeter style, however is nicely balanced with a hint of fresh juicy peaches, apricots, traces of raspberry and lemon that brings in some acidity. Decent to good length sipping wine is textbook mid-afternoon perfect! Sip without food or while picnicking over a delicious fish dish.
