Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

This summery rosé is easy-drinking and easy to love. It gives pretty strawberry and watermelon notes on nose and palate, with slight herbal touches. Extra-dry and light, making it a perfect patio sipper. Pair with a chicken sandwich or mild cheeses.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

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.
