Reviews and Ratings

Stratus Vineyards - Soft and pretty with aromas of sweet scented roses and lavender. Soft on acidity. Nice quaffer. MINE: This Niagara-on-the-Lake rosé from Ontario's Wildass Stratus Vineyards (XXXX) is white flowers and rose petals on the nose with strawberry, rhubarb, lavender and light green herbs on the palate. This rosé is consistently fresh and crisp. Great on its own or with cold turkey sandwiches. OTHER: Stratus is known for blending with the best of them, and this rosé brings together a wild combination of Cabernet Franc, Tempranillo, Sauvignon Blanc and Riesling. Nice fruity-savoury-tangy interplay here, with Red Delicious apple, strawberry jam, red bell pepper and garden herbs. A kiss of residual sweetness juxtaposes with a bright, lip-smacking acidity while trace tannins lend gentle structure. Pour with herbed lamb, spicy sausages, grilled curried shrimp, or pizza with a garlic cream sauce. (Vintages panel, April 2018). - 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.
