LCBO Note Status
Our panel was so impressed by the 2016 vintage of this wine, which Jancis Robinson, MW, called a 'really serious rosé' (jancisrobinson.com, Aug. 25, 2017), that we brought in the newly released 2017 vintage just in time for summer. Expect big peach, tangerine, savoury herb notes and plenty of structure and pair it with your favourite grilled lake fish. Price $ 27.95
