Reviews and Ratings

Deborah Podurgiel - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Fort Beren’s Estate Winery is located on the Fraser River, 325 kilometers north of Vancouver and 140 kilometers east of Whistler. This is a spectacular place where the Fraser runs wild and the coastal mountains soar, with incredible vistas, all manner of wildlife and rich in gold rush lore. This is also a pretty rugged place to have a winery and for it to thrive. Well, thrive it does, and with the same pioneering spirit and beliefs that came with the gold rush days, Fort Beren’s Estate Winery is making some of the best Riesling, Chardonnay, Cabernet Franc and Pinot Noir wines B.C. has to offer.

Their 2017 rosé is a juicy fruit bomb of Pinot Noir and Gamay Noir with a fresh cotton candy nose. This rosé is dry with flavours of strawberries, raspberries light savoury spice and herbs all wrapped up in a zesty, balanced acidity. A lot of finesse on this well-structured vibrant pink rosé, pair it with grilled chicken or shrimp, beetroot or green salads topped with herbed goat cheese.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty 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.
