Natalie's Score: 90/100
Don't let the brilliant strawberry hue of this rosé fool you: this wine is bone dry and bursting with refreshment. Aromas of tiny flavour-packed field berries and a lick of orange zest on the finish. Perfect as a chilled aperitif or pair it with seafood, shellfish, salads and more rosé, of course. Highly recommended.
Rosé food pairings: seafood, quiche, planked salmon, seared tuna.

Reviews and Ratings
|Mary Anne van Gaal rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
The deep salmon colour leads you to anticipate a fruity wine. This it is, but not in a cloyingly sweet way. Aromas of strawberry and peach greet the nose and flavours of ripe berries fill the mouth. A great summer drinking wine, it will hold its own paired with grilled fish and seafood, or a goat cheese topped salad.
|Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Wow, ripe strawberry with rhubarb and sage peeking out behind. The taste lines u nicely with the aroma. Lots of bright acidity and a great tart strawberry finish. air with bitter salads and balsamic vinegar or have as a patio sipper.
|Melanie Aubert rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
I first fell in love with Pansy! (yes, the exclamation mark is important in its pronunciation) years ago, and while the wine has changed over the vintages, it remains a solid rosé for summer sipping. The merlot grapes have imparted a dark pink colour to the wine, and it smells of the candy of my youth, Starburst to be exact, somewhere between strawberry and watermelon. Also a hint of bubble gum. It tastes of ripe strawberries and is a bit floral. The aftertaste has a hint of citrus. This wine is definitely full of surprises. Look for it each year around May in Vintages.

|Craig Kuziemsky rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Strawberry and stone fruit aromas with some crisp citrus notes appearing on the palate. Not sweet in any way but rather a crisp, well balanced wine that will pair well with salmon or even a summer chicken salad.
|Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
The colour of this rosé is so intense and attractive. Made from Merlot and Malbec grapes, the nose displays strawberry, cran-cherry, and pepper. Dry, and well structured. This rose has tannins, which isn't uncommon, but nice to see. A terrific wine to enjoy as an apertif, with spring salads, pan seared fish, Thanksgiving meals or simply enjoy on its own. 89 points.

|Rachelle O'Connor rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Beautiful cranberry color in the glass. Notes of sweet strawberries, raspberries. Lovely flavors of the ripe red fruit and delightful acidity. Perfect on its own or with light appetizers.
|Cherie Cole rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Aromas of strawberry jam jump out of the glass. Although sweet on the nose, this wine is crisp and dry with flavours of strawberry, sage and citrus. A great wine to pair with cold seafood salad or shrimp.
|Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
Mild fresh strawberry nose, again on palate with slight herbal touches. Satiny, creamy texture and mild strawberry finish. Dry, refreshing, very summery.
