Reviews and Ratings

Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Refereshing and summery with aromas of strawberry, melon and cherry. Light bodied on the palate with medium acidity, a balance of tart and ripe berry flavours and some orangey citrus notes. Enjoy with salmon or pork dishes.
Pelee Island Lola 2018 is a great value Cabernet Franc Rosé under $16 from South Islands, Lake Erie North Shore wine region. Dry and juicy with ripe strawberry, pink grapefruit and lime zest flavours on the palate. Chill and pair with creamy cheeses, salads and fish tacos. - Community Wine Reviews
