Natalie's Score: 90/100

Gray Monk’s 2017 vintage of the Rotberger and Gamay blend rose is absolutely lovely! Aromas of small field strawberries. The grapes underwent a 9-day fermentation in stainless steel tanks with two days on the skins for colour. To maximize the fruit flavours strict temperature control was employed during the fermentation process. Medium-bodied. Pair with seafood and shellfish.

Reviews and Ratings

Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 reviewed this wine as follows:

Delicate looking in the glass, but this lovely rose packs a lot of flavour! Aromas of field strawberry, lime zest, and a hint of orange blossom. Light on the palate with vibrant acidity, and bright, joyful fruit on the palate. Enjoy with any fresh summer salads, smoked salmon, or even with charcuterie and cheese.

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.
