Wine review: Rosé by Mission Hill 2013, British Columbia

Red blend

An inviting mid-strawberry-pink hue suggests this rosé could go either way – down the dry road or toward that sweet candyland inhabited by many of its fresh-faced New World comrades. I'd say it veers just slightly in the latter direction, with pronounced sweetness that ends in good acidity. Soundly made and satisfyingly redolent of strawberry, peach and watermelon, it would be nice on its own in the heat; $15.99 in B.C., $15.99 in Manitoba, $19.98 in Newfoundland.
