A lovely, refreshing BC rosé with notes of small field berries and strawberries. Racy acidity makes this a terrific companion for seafood and salads.

Reviews and Ratings

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

Love this for a wonderful, sunny, summer day. Aromas of strawberry, red cherry, fresh melon and a hint of peach. Medium bodied, with just a hint of acidity, and lovely fresh hints of berry and citrus on the palate. So refreshing, balanced, and full of flavour. Enjoy with BBQ ribs.
Deborah Podurgiel - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Gray Monk Winery’s 2020 rosé is a beautifully put together off-dry, medium-plus-bodied and vibrant rosé blend of 36% Cabernet Franc, 29% Merlot, 13% Rotberger, 9% Gamay Noir, 8% Pinot Noir and 5% Pinot Meunier. On the nose, it’s a promise of summer in a glass with pink florals, strawberries and cream, fresh cherry and fine dried green herb aromas. Nicely balanced on the palate as well, with ripe strawberry, cherry cotton candy, ripe peach, soft orange citrus, dried chives and a refreshing citrus bite on the finish.

The wine juice was cool fermented in stainless-steel tanks for 21 days. A great patio sipper that is also food versatile, we poured it with salmon burgers from the grill. Tasted May 2021. #30DaysofVQA
