We are, however, on the cusp of rosé season. Evenings on the deck watching a sunset, or a lunch in the garden, call for a rosé wine. Chilled — with aromas of strawberry, pomegranate, greengage, or cranberry — these wines are the harbinger of warmer days and happy experiences.
A major shout-out to the team at Rosehall Run winery, who celebrate their 15th year with the release of their yummy “traditional method” sparkling wine. This labour of love joins the pantheon of outstanding sparkling wines that are drawing rave reviews for the wine scene in Prince Edward County.

2014 South Bay Chardonnay crafted by Huff Estates resident winemaker Frederick Picard… I was initially captivated by its correct livery badge of sun-washed straw. The nose is a captivating journey of greengage, Turkish apricots, along with hints of sponge toffee. The palate is a crisp Granny Smith apple that meets a home-cooked apple pie; the crisp and clean finish has a brushstroke of our distinctive minerality.
…2010 Northfield Cabernet Franc crafted from estate-grown fruit at the Grange of Prince Edward. The care in fruit selection, with primary fermentation and aging in barriques, shows in the wine. It is a stunning example of Cabernet Franc: its nose filled with rich blackberry preserves on cinnamon toast, a fruit-driven palate, with a subtle lingering finish. This wine will soon be a much sought after treasure.
Hubbs Creek 2013 Pinot Noir … The result of his dedication shows in the wine. The nose is a cornucopia blend of black raspberry, cherry and frankincense; the palate is a barnyard air-dried bresaola, with a cranberry pomegranate chalky old world finish.
