Mission Hill Family Estate Reserve Rosé

rose all day
Name: Mission Hill Family Estate Reserve Rosé
Varietal: Rosé
Country: Canada (British Columbia)
Vintage: 2016
Price: $24

Why did I decide to try this wine? My family and I spent our big vacation this year doing a Canada inspired road trip to celebrate Canada 150. Along the way we ended up in the Okanagan Valley, one of Canada's most well known wine regions... so, as every good set of parents would do we took our 22 month old on a mini-wine tour. Mission Hill winery was at the top of my list to visit and when a rosé was on the tasting list I figured I would give it a try.

Would I prefer one glass or indulge in the bottle? Bottle. Which is quite surprising to me because I typically don't care for rosé. I love the saying "rosé all day", but the wine usually doesn't do much for me. This rosé has sky-rocketted to the top of my rosé list!

What shoes would I wear drinking this wine? Rose gold Keds for Kate Spade sparkle sneakers (I have always wanted an excuse to buy these, haven't you?!)

How would I describe the wine? This particular rosé isn't too sweet which I think is the number one reason I enjoyed it. It felt more like a dry white wine with a good amount of body and yet, wasn't bitter at all. It smelled sweeter than it tasted with hints of cotton candy and melons.

If you're going to "Rosé all Day" you're to need flat fancy sneakers!
