Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

From Okanagan Valley, B.C., V.Q.A. Copper pink with cranberry/raspberry, citrus rind and strong herbal notes. Dry and refreshing with herbal finish. Bring on the smoked oysters!
Tasted May 2017
Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Bright pink with a slight salmon hue. Declared 13% ABV. Tart and Uber mouthwatering. Notes of almost ripe strawberry, cranberry, rose petal. Pairs well with charcuterie, summer salads, and is drinking well on its own. Tasted May 2017. 88 points
Quails' Gate rosé (2016) is so strawberry on the nose, dry finishing with zesty acidity on the palate. The wine blend is mostly Gamay Noir, Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris. Pairs perfectly with a charcuterie plate or light barbeque fare like Pacific salmon. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty 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.
