Location Bought: LCBO Vintages
Format: 750 mL
Producer: Jean Olivier
Alcohol: 14% Alcohol/Vol.
Description: Deep pomegranate in colour with a highly intense nose.
Positives: Lots of flavour going on here featuring strawberry, sour cherry, lavender on the nose, candy apple and pomegranate. Medium+ body, good acidity and a fairly long length.
Negatives: A little heat from the 14% alcohol.
Interesting Things: One of my favourite rosés.
Drink now and although it’s fine to drink on its own, I would pair it with food such as pork chops with a spicy edge.
