Awards & Ratings

Connoisseur Note(s):

89. SpearHead’s latest pink wine is nicely balanced and refreshing. Grown at estate vineyards in Kelowna and Summerland, the pinot noir grapes were hand harvested to produce this fruity and fragrant rosé. The flavourful style is well suited to summer sipping and al fresco dining. Drink now to 2022. ~ Christopher Waters on Wine

This easy-breezy pink by Okanagan veteran winemaker Grant Stanley, a kind of Pinot whisperer in our midst. He coaxes all the right nuances out of the variety, to ensure the grape still shines regardless of wine style. ...The resulting wine is awash with cherries, rhubarb, and watermelon, and will be a great match for summery salads. Or steak. Or creamy pastas. Or fish and chips. Or, really, anything the heart fancies.  ~ Kurtis Kolt
