Instead of giving your mom your favourite Rosé for Mother’s Day, give her one that’s been custom picked for her. We asked our friends at Town Hall Brands to craft the perfect pairing for every motherly personality.
Which one describes your mom the best?
Singletree Winery Family Reserve Rosé
If high tea and sumptuous brunches are more your mom’s speed, then consider Singletree’s brand-new Family Reserve Rosé. The hand-picked grapes are 100 per cent Naramata Bench Estate Merlot. It’s bright and intensely flavourful with a lush mouthfeel. There were only 70 cases of this exclusive Rosé made, so pick up yours quickly. Available to wine club members only for $26. The club gets you two cases of Singletree wines per year, delivered to your door anywhere in Canada.
Evolve Cellars Rosé 2018
For the mom who has so much fun with you that sometimes you both forget she’s supposed to be telling you right from wrong. This classic choice has delectable aromas of watermelon and cherry. Expect an undeniably crisp and refreshing feel on the palate. A beautiful expression of Summerland. Priced reasonably for $16.99.
Evolve Cellars Pink Effervescence
If your mom bumps into more people she knows than you do walking down the street or at your favourite restaurant, consider Evolve’s lively Pink Effervescence. Bright and fresh, this charmat-method sparkling wine has notes of ripe peach and rich berry fruit. This perfectly pink bubbly is ideal for photos or a colourful twist to a cocktail. Pink Effervescence is always the most fun option. Sold for $19.99.
TIME Winery Rosé 2018
Sourced from Silver Barrel Vineyard perched above Skaha lake, this 100 per cent Syrah Rosé has amazing strawberry aromas, great body, crisp acidity and long finish. TIME Winery is housed in a state-of-the art downtown Penticton winery, located in the former PenMar movie theatre. Any mom who spent her summers in Penticton would know the iconic theatre and love the piece of nostalgia to accompany her Rosé. Pick yours up for $24.99.
Haywire Gamay Rosé 2018
For the mom who is practically certified organic herself, Haywire’s Rosé is a beautiful selection that reflects the best of B.C.’s terroir. Haywire is created for the wine-intrigued and anti-GMO consumer in mind. Expect mouth-watering acidity with lifted red fruits, balanced by savoury herbal notes. Available for $22.90.
Narrative Rosé 2018
Made from grapes harvested in Summerland and Oliver vineyards, this wine is bone dry and very textural. Another fantastic organic option. Taste bright berry fruits and a lovely herbal complexity. Fermented in progressive concrete tanks. Narrative is known for being unique and is a guaranteed standout wine compared to others. Remind you of mom? Available for $19.90.
Blue Grouse Estate Winery Quill Rosé
She’s super fit and loves expensive coffee, but most importantly she loves and appreciates the West Coast more than anything. Blue Grouse Estate Winery is a sanctuary on Vancouver Island that regards the environment above all else. The 100 per cent Gamay Rosé boasts aromas and flavours of wild forest strawberries and has a unique yet stunning peachy colour. It’s a complex, full flavoured wine that would pair perfectly with grilled fish, chicken or pizza (if that’s what your mom is craving). Available for $21.
