Deborah Podurgiel rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Re-Think Rosé was one of the first wines produced at JoieFarm and certainly perfected after 14 vintages. Deep pink in the glass, this is such a juicy, dry (1.1 g/l res. sugar) mouth-watering rosé with ripe strawberries on the nose, rhubarb, ripe cherry and tart red berry flavours on the palate. The 2017 blend is produced from mostly Pinot Noir sourced from the Hollenbach Family Vineyards on the Skaha Bluff with 20% Gamay grapes sourced from the St. Hubertus Vineyard in Kelowna, giving the wine a spicy, light savoury herb and peppery finish. Enjoy chilled on its own and pair it with just about anything, it’s so easygoing and versatile.

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.

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.
