TASTING NOTE: This is a beautiful Rosé from Pelee Island, and the wine inside the bottle is just as gorgeous as the package. The aromas and flavours are strawberry, cranberry, raspberry, and a nice slight hint of citrus on the finish. This is a dry rosé and the finish is clean. This isn't spritzy like the Lola cousins you have been able to find at the LCBO in the past, but there is a slight effervescence that helps keep this light on the palate. Food pairings options are nearly endless, and if you're not yearning for summer yet, you will be once you taste this wine.
