For me, summer doesn’t officially begin until I open my first bottle of Road 13 Rose. Vintage after vintage delivers a style of Rose that seems to tickle my palate. The 2018 isn’t the very pale pink of the last few years. But have no fear, the taste is note perfect. When I drink pink I look for something similar to what France has made famous. So good acidity, minerality and juicy. Road 13 ticks all those boxes for me. I love the flavours of cherries, strawberries and watermelon. So whether you’re looking for the perfect patio sipper or to pair with a picnic or BBQ Honest John’s is honestly the right choice. It’s also easy to find for a last minute beach visit. Happy Summer Vancouver!
