The Honest John tier of wines are aptly named. For years they’ve represented an honest return on your money. This Rose is a case in point. The 2017 vintage begins with a beautiful aroma reminiscent of a warm day in an orchard. Beautiful scent of berries that hints at what awaits once you take the first sip. The darker pink colour of the newest vintage hints at the intensity of the flavours too. It’s a rich and enjoyable mouthful of cherries and strawberries that’s terrific on its own but with enough body to handle any summer dish. In fact you’re missing out if you don’t drink this wine year round. It’s a terrific companion no matter the season.
