This lovely, light-bodied Nova Scotia rose is made from the Pinot Meunier grape. Aromas of small strawberries and field berries. Racy acidity for seafood and shellfish. Great aperitif, too.

Reviews and Ratings

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

Beautiful floral aromatics. Lovely strawberry flavours with more than a touch of residual sugar. Not hugely complex but easy to enjoy on a warm summer afternoon. Impressive and highly recommended.
Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Wow! Acidity. Mouthwatering isn’t a large enough expression of acidity to describe what happened in my mouth when I tasted this wine. Tart with an impressive balance of big fruit and big acidity with low tannins and medium body. Pair with seared tuna. Tasted 2017 vintage in July 2018. 90 points
Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

A fragrant, fruity floral, sparkling rose from Lightfoot Wolfville. Gentle floral touches, watermelon and honeydew. Flavours are juicy and fresh with white peach, honeydew and hints of honeyed lychee spices. Acidity is vibrant and juicy raspberry sorbet follows through into the finish. Pair with smoked salmon canapes and shrimp. 87 points. - tasted November 2018

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

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