We’re fans of the folks at Rosewood Estates. They are a VQA vineyard that is based in the Niagara region.
One unique little tid-bit is that they are beekeepers along with wine makers. This makes total sense as great bees help make great grapes.
It also means they end up with a great selection of meads! A favourite drink of mine.
I have to say this is one of the more unique drinks I’ve had while reviewing for this site. It’s a mead based drink that’s mixed with Pinot Noir grapes. Some might call this blasphemy, I call it SCIENCE!
Appearance: Salmon colour. Filtered.
Aroma: Slight honey and elder flower. Very clean. Lilac and other spring floral scents with strawberries.
Taste: The palate does not match the nose. Honey is still there, lots of sugar. Oily mouth feel. Semi sweet. No tannins. Bit of spring flower.
Aftertaste: A bit of Lingering sweetness.
Overall: A unique experience. A dessert wine for those who don’t want an ice wine.
