Reviews and Ratings

Carolyn Hetke rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

There aren't many boxes this Merlot/Malbec blended rosé doesn't tick. It starts with the inviting, clear salmon hue in the glass. Then the nose and palate throw up grapefruit and strawberries. Nicely balanced and extremely quaffable! This will pair with all kinds of seafood and summer salads. Tasted May 2018
Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

This is awesome and perfect for Summer. Strawberry, rhubarb, orange blossom and acacia honey. Lovely and enough stuffing to match up to grilled chicken or duck. 90 Points.
Courtney Flood rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

surprisingly reminiscent of the sauvignon blanc, with the gooseberry, but also sweet strawberries and cream. Fresh and light, but also creamy, with a hint of herbal thai basil. I dig it. Great for frittata, oven-roasted tomatoes with goats cheese, cheese topped anything.
Sharon Aubie rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Beautiful nose of pink grapefruit and rose petals. Lovely dry rosé with flavours of white grapefruit and lots of acidity

Pair with BBQ and seafood. You can never go wrong with buying a Kim Crawford wine.

Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Aromas of strawberry, watermelon, and peach. Lots of flavour on this wine. Dry to off-dry, with the same flavours coming through on the palate, along with a hint of orange zest. Very enjoyable, try with pork or salmon off the BBQ this summer, or on its own.
Colin McKone - Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Salmon in colour with aromas of pink grapefruit, strawberry and violet. It is dry, light bodied with mouthwatering acidity and favours of pink grapefruit & tart green apple. This will pair well with chicken or seafood. Tasted on May 6, 2018.
Andrea Shapiro Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Fresh, fragrant, flowers with strawberries, watermelon, blueberry, apple blossoms, white pepper heat and a touch of soft rocky driven minerals. Flavours reveal strawberries, pink grapefruit citrus and edible flowers. A touch of peppermint heat. Crisp, dry and refreshing. Pair with pesto chicken skewers. 87 points - tasted May 6, 2018
Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier reviewed this wine as follows:

Hmmm interesting... Aromas show prominent grassy, lime zest, and field strawberry notes and palate shows intense pink grapefruit flavours. Enjoy this zesty rosé with leafy green salads and grilled chicken salads. Tasted May 2018 by @sommsosa | bespketastings.ca
