Natalie's Score: 91/100

A superb Niagara rose with a delicious, lip-smacking delight of field berry flavour! Dry, crisp, mouth-watering and joyous. This wine is alive in the glass. Medium-bodied, no heavy oak. This is a blend of Cabernet Franc, Gamay and Pinot Noir grapes from a gravity flow winery that farms sustainably. This wine has a cult following. Pair with prayers that you can buy enough of it to satisfy your craving for it.

Ladybug Rose food pairings: hors d'oevres, pizza, pastas, poultry and ham.

Reviews and Ratings

Tania Thomas - CSW, WSET ADV rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Delightful Ontario rosé blend, vinified with 50% cab franc, 25% gamay 20% pinot noir and a touch of cab sauvignon grown on the rugged Niagara Escarpment and vinified with minimal environmental footprint. Bursting with sweet forest strawberries, red cherries and raspberries. Dry, fresh and fruity it makes a great companion to an appetizer tray filled with smoked meats and cheeses, with seafood or on its own as a perfect patio sipper. Tasted May 2016/91 points.

Nicole Lewis rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Medium pink intensity, reserved nose of cotton candy, cherry bubble gum, red berry fruit, especially field strawberries, violets. This light-medium bodied, medium-high acidity rosé reveals tangy cranberry and strawberries on the palate. It has medium to high acidity and great bones. It maintains its composure on its medium to long crabapple-strawberry finish. This wine has enough body to pair with simple grilled white fish dishes.
Monique rated this wine as 70/100 with the following review:

Not as good as expected, but with that being said I'm more into the sweeter, dryer wines with a stronger mixed or strawberry flavour. I wouldn't pair it with anything. Perfect for random glasses of wine without occasion. I think I like my wines with more of an oak taste.
Composed of cabernet franc, gamay and pinot noir, harvested at an average 20.4 Brix. Primary fermentation (no malo-lactic) and ageing in stainless steel.
