Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Crisp, pink grapefruit and aromatic apples! Very nice sparkling rose. Done in the traditional method style. Dry (11g/L) and 12.5%, this is a lively and fresh fruit forward without being too sweet. Finishes clean with lingering hints of strawberry sorbet, softly enveloping. Pair with fresh salads, seafood and soft cheeses. 90 points
Cora Beaulieu rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

13th Street Winery’s Cuvée Rosé NV is a traditional sparkling wine made from a blend of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and a trace amount of Gamay Noir. This bubbly is a soft medium salmon pink. The nose hints at aromas of fresh red berries, minerals, light spices, subtle anise, and mineral tones. The mousse is creamy and refined, is dry and yet quite refreshing with a long, delicate finish of ripe stone-fruit and light toasted bread. Perfect on its own as a before-dinner drink or sip with your favorite appetizers. [Tasted March 2017 at Taste Ontario!]
Pamela Chiles rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Plenty of flavour and body in this fine fizz. Savoury strawberry, cranberry, grapefruit/ctirus. Very fresh and vivacious. Perfect patio sipper.
Lori Kilmartin rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

When you speak to winemaker JP, who hails from Chablis, you understand why the wines at 13th Street are of such great caliber. This Sparkling Rosé is a prime example. Made in the traditional method (the same as Champagne) with 50% Chardonnay and Pinot Noir and a splash of Gamay for colour - this is a wine for any occasion. Brioche and strawbery on the nose, fresh cherry and fine perlage. Only 8 grams of sugar so it attacks at the beginning then finishes dry and mouthwatering. Drink year round!

This bright pink rosé makes a beautiful hostess gift - it's a party in the glass!
I had the pleasure of speaking with 13th Street winemaker, Jean-Pierre Colas about the making of this spectacular bubbly. Made in a Burgundian-style traditional method, grapes are 50/50 Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. A splash of Gamay is added to bring red berry fruit flavours forward, and a more rich pink hue.
Aromas of lemon, cranberry and hints of brioche carry through to a mouthwatering grapefruit finish, with persistent and sophisticated fizz.
Pair with goat cheese salads, or a a variety of appetizers.

Celebrate any occasion with this elegant sparkling Rosé from Ontario. Made in the traditional method, the bubbles are delicate and lively. Aromas and flavours consist of strawberry, raspberry and fresh-baked pastries. Perfect as an apéritif or enjoy with summer, Sunday brunch. Tasted June, 2016.
Monique Sosa rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Stunning and scrumptious! This traditional method sparkling rose is bliss in a glass. The aromas show notes of strawberry, rhubarb, and freshly baked berry scones. One sip on the palate and note the abundance of fine vigorous bubble, mouthwatering acidity and a crisp clean finish. Key flavours include tart cherry, rhubarb and pink grapefruit. Enjoy as an aperitif and/or pair with beet salads, leafy green salads or charcuterie.
Heather Wall rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

This is a blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay as in traditional Champagnes but this lovely sparkling Ontario wine has a splash of Gamay. The result is a pretty deep pink with aromas and flavours strawberry, raspberry, red apple, yeast, brioche, blackcurrant leaf and Niagara wet stone. Vibrant acidity and persistent delicate mousse awakens the palate and waits for the next gulp. Made in the méthode Champenoise with superb craftsmanship. One of my go-to faves. Light-bodied and excellent quality/price ratio.
Tasted: December 2015
Matt Steeves rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

13th Street Winery Cuvée Rosé is a blend of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, with a hint of Gamay Noir. Produced in the same labour intensive manner as Champagne, this traditional method sparkling wine offers great value and is a go-to for many when looking for a fine bubbly. Dry with lively acidity and a fine palate cleansing mousse, it has lovely field berries, cran-apple, strawberry shortcake/biscuit, and mineral notes. Perfect as an aperitif, or on it's own, and made even better with smoked salmon, charcuterie plates, or fresh garden salads with strawberries. Such a versatile wine and terrific value for a traditional method sparkling wine. Enjoy now or cellar for a few extra years.
Tasted March 2015, January 2016, April 2017, and August 2019. A consistent 91 points each tasting. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca
Jon Steeves rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

This wine is a nonvintage released in 2015. Strawberry and cranberry coloured and declared at 12.5% ABV. With rich aromatics of tart strawberry, cranberry, crisp tart crab apple, fresh bread. Mouthwatering, high acidity, crisp and tart made with Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from Niagara Peninsula VQA. Enjoy this wonderful crisp brut with smoked salmon, salmon tartare, sushi, antipasti or on it's own.
