When I’m asked to recommend wineries that deliver a lot of bang for the buck Evolve Cellars is always on the list. From their sparkling wine portfolio to the Cab/Merlot blend and their Rose I’m a big fan. This Rose is unique from the many I’ve tried this year because of the beautiful watermelon aroma. You’ll also taste that with first sip but give your nose some love too. The melon flavours are mixed with cherries and strawberries so essentially it’s a fruit basket in a glass. A crisp and dry wine that I paired with BBQ spareribs and it was a terrific match. Make sure you check out Evolve Cellars wines. Your palate and wallet will say thanks.
