Tasting Notes

A frothy blend of Vidal with a touch of Pinot Noir contributing flavour and the distinctive bright salmon colour. Pixie is barely off-dry, with peach, apricot, and tangerine flavours and lively refreshing acidity throughout the palate.

 Serving Suggestions

Pixie is perfect for any occasion jazzed up with a sprinkling of jewel-like pomegranate seeds or a fresh strawberry or raspberry.

 Critical Acclaim

“Light coral pink, this cheerfully named pink bubbly comes from Rosehall Run, a consistently good producer in Ontario's Prince Edward County. It's just slightly sweeter than dry yet not quite off-dry, with generous, sweet-creamy fruitiness suggesting strawberry jam, peach and tangerine. Lively froth and bright-sour acidity bring it into fine balance. There's a pleasant herbal note, too. Made using the charmat method common to Prosecco.” Beppi Crosariol, The Globe and Mail

 “A blend … that shows a vibrant pink colour in the glass with a lovely nose of strawberry, raspberry, citrus and peach. Slightly off-dry on the palate, but finishes relatively dry with a basket of red fruit and citrus flavours all kept lively by freshening acidity.” Rick Vansickle, winesinNiagara.com

“A light, pretty Ontario sparkling wine with notes of field strawberries. Works as an aperitif or companion to steamed lobster. Food pairings: summer salads, hors d'oeuvres.” Natalie MacLean, nataliemaclean.com

 “Salmon-pink hued, it envelops the palate with refreshing, flavour-laden mouthfuls of sugared-grilled red grapefruit and tangy red cherry. It’s crisp and refreshing with plenty of pizzazz. Serve on its own to welcome guests or with hors d’oeuvre or lighter-styled mains.” Score 90 Vic Harradine, Winecurrent.ca
