Reviews and Ratings

Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

A fine easy-drinking rose of the entire day! Ripe strawberry and pink grapefruit flavours dominate this wine. Enjoy with summer green salads topped with dried fruit, nuts and sprinkled with a mild citrus-berry vinaigrette. Tasted April 2017 by @sommsosa | bespoketasting.ca
Daniel O'Keefe rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Tart red berries like cherry, cranberry, and strawberry dominate the fresh and fruity nose. All red berry on the palate with lively acidity and just a hint of sweetness. Classic patio, porch, deck, dock, poolside, or backyard barbecue wine on sunny summer afternoons. Enjoy with salmon, trout, or burgers, beef or veggie.
Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Rose with a slight salmon hue. A bit of effervescence when opening the bottle. Declared 13% ABV. Tart and citrus, nectarine and wild strawberry on the palate with a medium finish. Wonderful summer supper, patio friendly. Pairs well with warm goats cheese salad, and fresh fruit. A case of this would be a great asset for patio season. Good value. Tasted April 2017. 88 points.
