Reviews and Ratings

Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Beautiful, fresh, zippy and mouthwatering. Juicy, citrus peel, blood orange, ripe strawberry, lees. Copper coloured. Fine bubbles. A great traditional method at an accessible price point. Pair with charcuterie or almost anything. Tasted 2012 vintage in November 2017. 92 points. #BespokeTastings
Cherie Cole rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

This was certainly a special treat that the fine folks from Grange of Prince Edward pulled from the cellar for us to try. The colour of this sparkling rosé is a peachy-pink and one of the most unique I've seen. Its made in the traditional method, from 100% estate-grown Pinot Noir and aged for 40 months sur lie. There are lots of red summer fruit on the nose and palate, ripe raspberry, strawberry and cherry. Tasted July 23, 2017.
Melanie Lloyd - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

The lees come through in the aromas of this wonderful bubbly from Prince Edward County. Rich and succulent aromas of buttery croissant, peach, blood orange, truffle, and a tiny hint of mint.

On the palate, it has tart citrus flavours, predominantly lemon. It is creamy, opulent and delicious.

Tasted at County in the Capital, April 2018
Lynn Van Der Linde rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

This traditional method brut sat on its lees for five years, and boasts rich aromas and flavours, perfect for Champagne snobs without the price tag.
Smoked salmon hue, with loads of citrus and apricot on the nose, that carry through to a persistent citrus with delicate bubbles.
Great with fish dishes, summer salads, or appetizers.
Tasted Sept 2017.
Lori Kilmartin WSET3 - WSET3 Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Pretty in the glass and on the palate. This traditional method rosé spent 5 years sur lie. The result - a rustic mouth watering sparkling with aromas of ripe tangerines and nectarines. Underlying aromas of brioche and yeast are also evident. Plenty of depth and a long finish. Tasted October 2017.
Simon Chen rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A beautiful brut rose from Canada. Nice yeast, brioche aromas on the nose. bubbling is medium length. Nice fruit and dryness that balance well. Finish is a bit short. Not sure so much about the price though, you could get a good Cava or Crement for the price
Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Pale copper colour. A fresh and delightful dry sparkling rosé from Prince Edward County, Ontario V.Q.A., with pretty strawberry, mandarin orange and brioche notes. Lovely to kick off a party.
Tasted Nov. 2017
Rachelle O'Connor rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Copper in color, a very dry sparkling from the lovely Prince Edward County....baking spice, brioche, crab apple, tangerine rind, and strawberry. Deliciously creamy mouthfeel, delicate bubbles. Tasted November 2017.
Caitlin Coleman rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Orangey pink in colour with invigorating bubbles. Candied orange peel, red delicious apples and red berries on the nose. Fresh and fruity. An incredible summer beverage on its own or with chicken on the BBQ.
Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

An aromatic jammy berry fruit forward sparkling rosé with lingering ripe strawberry and raspberry flavours. Enjoy this creamy off-dry Prince Edward Country bubbly with croissant BLTs. Tasted Nov 2017 by @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca
Pam Hatton rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Lovely copper pink bubbles give a hint that this sparkler will promise a surprise. Very fruit forward with big fresh strawberry, strawberry jam and grapefruit on the nose. The nose and palate show citrus and butter with a zesty acidity cutting through giving a long fresh finish.
Wineboy rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

The purity of the raspberry and strawberry fruit on the nose. It;s more complex on the palate where it shows it's age. Imagine the berry fruits offset by honey notes from a soft oxidizaiton. I prefer this flavour on white sparkling not rose.
Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

Pale pink with some soft strawberry and underripe watermelon aromas. On the palate, toast with strawberry jam, and touches of raspberry. Medium minus acidity, light body with a touches of citrus and a fizzy sweet strawberry finish.
Light and fruity. Pair with salmon mousse and shrimp hors doeuvres.
86 points - November 2017
Sharon Lécuyer rated this wine as 84/100 with the following review:
