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.

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
