TASTING NOTE: The Stewart family has been making wine amidst mountain foothills in the Okanagan for three generations, but it'll only take three seconds for this pink wine to impress with its aromas of candied grapefruit peel, rhubarb jam, wild strawberry and flowers. It's elegant and beautifully textured in the mouth with tangy cherry and citrus. Pair with grilled Canadian-bacon sandwiches. (Vintages panel, May 2018) Price $ 19.95
