This vibrant and impressive Niagara rose is made from Pinot Noir grapes. Fresh and invigorating with notes of wild strawberries. Named for owner Martin Malivoire's wife Moira. Pair with planked salmon.

Reviews and Ratings

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

This is a particularly special offering from Malivoire. It's built around Pinot Noir with short maceration and fermented in a 'milk tank,' which has a more hprozontal shape. This encourages leesy aromas from the yeast cells that colllect along the bottom of the tank. The result is a rosé with funkt aromatics to contrast the wine's fruitiness.
The colour is extremely pale, salmon-pink.
The aromas are wonderfully exotic. Rosehip, wild strawberry, cranberry, heather, and flake pastry.
Overchilling this ruins some of the more interesting flavours. So as you sip it, leave it outsode the fridge. Look for more tart cherry and strawberry. Graham cracker, white pepper, and peachy too.
This would make a seriously good wine for a picnic, but it would be fantastic with cured hungarian sausage and corn chowder. Reviewer's choice!
Cherie Cole rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Made from Pinot Noir, this pretty salmon-pink Rosé is the #1 style at Malivoire Wine Company. Strawberry, rose petals, citrus and honeydew melon awaken your senses with flavors of peach, grapefruit, strawberry and a hint of minerality. The grapes were picked in the early morning and underwent a 24 hour chill in stainless steel. With just over 500 cases made, this makes for a lovely summer wine to enjoy on the patio or with crisp salads. Tasted March 31, 2016 - Taste Ontario
