Megalomaniac Pink Slip Rosé is produced by John Howard Cellars of Distinction and is a bright and juicy rosé that with bright raspberry, ripe red cherry and savoury herb flavours on the palate. Don't give this wine the pink slip, instead, pair it with grilled, BBQ pork ribs.

Reviews and Ratings

Daniel O'Keefe rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Ripe cherry, red fruit, and mild floral aromas on this deeply pink and expressive rose. Dry and crisp with similar red fruit flavours accented by underlying minerality on the palate. A pretty pleasant pink perfect for porch and patio sipping, or paired with BBQ ribs, burgers, or watermelon and feta salad.
Carolyn Hetke rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

This one is still rather tight but eventually it offers up subtle, savoury notes of dried thyme on the nose and dried strawberry on the palate. It has more body than many rosés. Slightly tart on the medium finish. Try it with smoked trout or arctic char. Tasted June 2019. www.thewineloverskitchen.com
An aromatic, medium-bodied, off-dry rosé from the Niagara wine region, on the palate, Megalomaniac's Pink Slip is rich, ripe raspberry, cherry, dark plum, mineral and vibrant citrus flavours on the palate. Enough heft to handle lamb kebabs, smoked charcuterie meats and grilled salmon. A real crowd-pleaser.
