Reviews and Ratings

Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Really lovely rose, I think this would be great with food. Aromas of red cherry, cranberry and candied strawberry. Medium bodied, bright acidity, and mouthwatering strawberry and citrus on the palate. Enjoy while soaking up the sunshine, or with grilled chicken and a summer salad with raspberry vinaigrette.
Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

A light and lively Rose made from 100% Cabernet Franc grapes. The colour is gorgeous, pale pink with a peachy hue. Just like the flower on the label, it’s bursting with a perfumed essence of blossoms and white peaches, followed by a lingering delicate ginger spice. Flavours are bright with cantaloupe melon, field strawberries, fresh mint and cinnamon heat lingering into the back. Clean and refreshing. Serve chilled, while sitting some place outside in sunshine. Pairs great with a book, after gardening, or by the pool. Enjoy! - tasted August 2020
Craig Haynes - WSET3 FWS SWS IWS rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

An appealing 100% Cabernet Franc rosé from Ontario’s Niagara Peninsula appellation. Aromas reminiscent of u-pick strawberries and juicy kiwi mingled nicely and led the way to a medium bodied palate brimming with red berry, kiwi and melon flavours. Pleasing on its own or pair with berry and blue cheese topped salads. Enjoy.
