Craig Haynes rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Admirers of southern Ontario Rose will enjoy this unoaked offering from Malivoire. Juicy and fresh. Striking salmon colour. Although this Cab Franc, Gamay and Pinot Noir blend was aromatically shy, its dry, medium bodied palate was beautifully expressive, showing generous ripe strawberries and red cherry flavours. Overall a splendid product from this region. Enjoy.

Jennifer Havers rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Consistently delicious, flavourful.and versatile! Aromas of ripe strawberry, cherry amd watermelon. Medium bodied, with medium+ acidity, with rounded, ripe berry on the palate and a hint of citrus zest on the finish. Blended from Cabernet Franc, Gamay and Pinot Noir, this wine would pair with salmon, pork or grilled chicken.

Natalie's Review

Malivoire Wine Company Ladybug Rose 2018, Niagara Escarpment, Ontario VQA, Canada: This is Ontario's most popular rose, and it offers so much pleasure. Lovely and light-bodied aromas of strawberries. Dry and refreshing and mouth-watering. This is a Niagara blend of Cabernet Franc, Pinot Noir and Gamay grapes. Pair with grilled seafood or chicken.

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.
