Reviews and Ratings

Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

This bubbly is beautiful and fun! Aromas of strawberry and cranberry with a hint of orange blossom and lime. Off-dry, with mouthwatering acidity, crisp berry and citrus notes, and a refreshing, persistent bubble on the palate. Enjoy with smoked salmon.
Paula Bernardino rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

This was my weekend wine pick that helped me keep up with the festive mood between Christmas and New Year’s: a lovely sparkling blend of vidal and pinot noir from one of Prince Edward County's original wineries: Rosehall Run. Nice light pink colour in the glass with aromas and flavours raspberries and cranberries which gives it a balanced dry finish. I paired well with a spicy black beans’ hamburger. VQA wine. 11% alcohol. Available at the LCBO (Code LCBO: 492959) at $19.95.
Lori Kilmartin WSET3 - WSET3 Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

I loved this fun sparkling rose made by winemaker Dan Sullivan at Rosehall Run so much that I bought a case for the summer. A blend of Riesling, Chardonnay and touch of Zwiegelt grapes for colour, this is the perfect patio bubbly. Light and crisp with peach, strawberry and watermelon aromas and flavours. Versatile with food; I've paired it with cheese platters, smoked salmon and margarita pizza. Also lovely just sipping on its own! Tasted May 15, 21, 24, 28, June 1.....(2016) you get the picture! @Rosehall_Run
Neil Phillips rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Nose of ripe strawberries, raspberries, lemon drops.

Off-dry, flavours follow the nose with a medium finish. The residual sugar makes this a great patio wine, or try with some spicy Thai on the porch.

A fine everyday summer sparkler.

Tasted April, 2018.
Courtney Flood rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Savoury aromas of toasted walnut and buttered popcorn. Sweet cherry and cotton candy with the toasted nut finish.

Pair with smoked salmon and cream cheese
A frothy blend of Riesling and Chardonnay, with a touch of Pinot Noir contributing flavour and the distinctive pink colour. This sparkling wine was produced in the Charmat Method.
