LCBO Note Status Recommended by Vintage Assessments!
Perennially popular (despite the grapes being given the 'pink slip' before they could join their colleagues in other wines), this pink wine is brimming with ripe strawberry, raspberry and red cherry with a pretty floral embroidery and a tangy finish. Enjoy it with grilled fish or seafood, summer salads, turkey sandwiches, or mild cheeses such as brie. Price $ 19.95
