Matt’s review:

A gold medal winner at the 2016 Ontario Wine Awards, this value-priced rosé was produced with 100% estate grown Pinot Noir from one of Canada’s famous wine regions, Niagara-on-the-Lake. Deeply coloured for a rosé thanks to a cold-soak the winemaker employed to extract the right amount of colour and maximum amount of flavour from those tiny thin-skinned Pinot grapes. Aromas of freshly picked berries emerge with sweet strawberry, cranberry, a hint of fresh watermelon, with some sweet spice completing the bouquet. Creamy, soft, and loaded with sweet and refreshing red berries and spice on the finish. A great choice for sipping on your patio this spring and summer, and enjoying with grilled shrimp kebabs, pan seared scallops, or a grilled veggie burger. Tasted April 2017. 88 points.
