Natalie's Score: 92/100

Quails' Gate 2020 Rosé is a fresh and vibrant blend of Gamay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier with barely four hours of contact on the grape skins. A harmonious rosé, dry, elegant and fresh with red cherry, red currant, dried pink florals, fine herbs, soft and summery on the palate. So easy to enjoy. The Stewart Family settled in West Kelowna in 1908 to farm the land. In 1956, the family purchased the estate that now overlooks Okanagan Lake. The winery itself was founded in 1989.

Rosé food pairings: lox and capers, grilled salmon steak, fresh fruit, veggies, pasta primavera.

Reviews and Ratings

Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Beautiful rose, perfect for spring! Aromas of lime, strawberry, and cranberry with a touch of a floral hint. Dry, light bodied, with medium+ acidity, and vibrant citrus and red berry notes on the palate, with a crisp, mineral finish. Enjoy with shrimp cocktail or any cured meat/ charcuterie platter.
Deborah Podurgiel Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Love this fresh and fruity, light-bodied Gamay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier rosé wine blend from Quails’ Gate Winery. Each varietal was cool-fermented separately in stainless-steel tank prior to the final blend. Bright on the nose with wild strawberry, cranberry, red currant, melon and citrus aromas, this rosé is dry, crisp and refreshing with a lingering fresh red berry, fine herb finish and a smattering of spice. An easy summer sipper but very approachable now. The winery suggests pairing it with Caprese salad, melon and prosciutto, or spinach and strawberry salad. I must confess, we poured it on its own and paired it with gardening. Tasted March 2021.
