2016 Rose

19.18

Deliciously fruity and refreshingly dry! Aromatic, with sweet strawberry, rose petal & watermelon notes. Bright and crisp on the palate with ripe red berry & juicy peach flavours, finished with a splash of citrus. This is a versatile wine with a great affinity for food. Enjoy chilled, as an apéritif or alongside salmon, poultry, charcuterie or cheese.

Awards & Accolades

2011 - “[the winemaker] fermented this rosé in barrel and left it on the lees for six months. The lees contribution balances the acidity nicely. The wine has strawberry aromas and flavours and a crisp, dry finish.”
89 - John Schreiner (John Schreiner on Wine)

2010 - "...this refreshing rose offers up spicy red fruit, orange peel, apricots, vanilla and violets on the nose. It leads with sweet spiced berry flavours, has a silky weight and wonderfully balanced acidity to keep it lively." 
88 Points - Daenna Van Mulligen (WineDiva.ca)

2010 - Bronze Medal, Wine Access Canadian Wine Awards “Best Roses” Category

2007 - “This wine has a wonderful balance of acidity to fruit flavours (appearance of sweetness) that make this wine a perfect patio sipper. A strawberry-apple nose and bright pink in color. I wish I had discovered this wine, another winner from Averill Creek Vineyard, earlier in the year. Keep this Rose in mind for any remaining sunny summer days or save in the cellar for first sign of sun next year.”
87 Points - Liam Carrier (Icon Wines)
