Candied fruit and cherry cotton candy notes dominate. A nice summer sipper for palates who appreciate fruit forward off-dry rosés. Tasted July 2017 by @sommsosa bespoketastings.ca

Vibrant, juicy and fruit forward. This rosé is a patio ready, crowd pleaser. Off dry, with big ripe juicy strawberry and a hint of blood orange and candies ginger root. Tasted July 2017.

Some pretty strawberry, raspberry, cherry and toasty notes in this medium-bodied and off-dry offering from Reif Estate Winery. Pair with chicken burgers with a roasted-tomato chutney.

Fresh aromas of summer strawberry and hints of coconut, with a light strawberry finish.
Tasted May 2015.
