TASTING NOTE: Niagara's climate encourages wines with a driving fresh acidity, and this superb rosé from one of the region's most renowned producers is a mouth-watering example. It shows lifted, brightly articulated cherry, strawberry, melon and spice, with refined structure. A wine that will enhance any meal.
