"Few Canadian wineries take rosé as seriously as @malivoire. It was part of the opening inventory and has been subject to ongoing research and development to a point where @malivoire pink portfolio stands amongst the very best wines in the country."

Shimmering rosy gold in the glass, a pour offers perfumed and floral scents aside appetizing cocktail cherry, peach, papaya and lime.
With a juicy, plush entry and fresh mid-palate acidity, persisting cherry and peach flavours join pomegranate and grapefruit, and a vibrant lime zest finish.
Hand-picked on the cool mornings of September 9th and 10th from our original Moira Vineyard. Grape sugars averaged 19° Brix.
Vinification: Whole grape clusters were gently pressed for minimal contact between juice and skins. After briefly chilling in a wide-profile stainless-steel tank (resembling a dairy tank) for optimum lees contact, the juice transferred to a standard steel tank for cool fermentation. The finished wine was bottled in February 2023.
Enjoy now to 2026.

93 points, Vic Harradine, Winecurrent.com Aromas of strawberry and cream soda provide segue to a tang-infused surge of palate flavours with Montmorency pie cherry and raspberry jam to the fore. It’s crisp, clean and refreshing thanks to a persistent linear line of mouth-watering tangy acidity ... Pour as an aperitif to get gastric juices flowing or with freshly shucked briny oysters or prawn ceviche. Paired mine with a cheese fondue that turned out to be a suitable match.
