Reviews and Ratings

Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Gorgeous brilliant pink wine with tons citrus and flinty minerality - where are those intriguing scratched matchstick notes coming from Megalomaniac? This rosé is light and crisp with a squeaky clean short finish. A mouthwatering wine to pair with lobster and shrimp ceviche. Tasted May 2017 by @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca
Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Beautiful deep pink rosé from the famous Niagara Peninsula. Declared 12% ABV. Medium bodied, crisp and tart mouthfeel. Mouthwatering with medium acidity, medium fruit. Balanced. Tart red field berry, cherry and pomegranate aril persistence. Pair with patio season, summer salads. Great for sipping on its own. Tasted 2015 vintage in May 2017. 89 points @BespokeTastings
Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Sensational candy floss colour in the glass with a plethora of aromatics. Spring berries and candy floss washed with crisp acidity. Medium-bodied and dry. Lingering sweet spice and mouthwatering finish. Great price performer. Everyday summer patio sipper. This is a buy 2 wine.
Tasted: May 2016
A robust Niagara rose with notes of cherry pie. The back bottles says that these grapes were handed the "pink slip" during post harvest deliberations, then eventually vaulted to cult status in this rose. We assume that means they didn't make the cut for a robust red, but do just fine in pink wine thank-you. John Howard Cellars of Distinction produces this cheeky Niagara rose. - Community Wine Reviews
