750ml
8.5% ABV
$9.45 (LCBO)

A nice pinkish rose that is a pleasure to drink when it is hot outside.
It is rather dry and sharp which is very nice – again – on a hot day.
The fruitiness is quite subdued and it does not leave a sticky sweet taste in your mouth.
This is a very nice wine, the initial sharpness and dryness might set a few people back initially. But then the second sip will be pure pleasure. The balance between the fruitiness and the tartness is spot on. It makes for a very refreshing beverage.
The label is classically understated and tasteful. This wine will make for a nice bottle to bring to a summers barbecue gathering.
The low alcohol content is also a plus – you don’t really need high alcohol content when the sun is beating down on you. This wine is a great balancing act and a good drink when it is hot outside.
