Rosé All Day: Five Wallet-Friendly Picks for National Wine Day

ISO of a tasty but cheap Canadian rosé? Here are five options that fit the bill

Canadian rosé wines under $20: We love Malivoire Lady Bug Rosé (shown here)1. Malivoire Ladybug Rosé 2015, $17

Strawberry, peach and mango aromas lead the way into a delicate, v. easy drinking wine with a refreshing peppery, dry finish. Make like a baller and buy in bulk if you can.

Canadian rosé wines under $20: We love Henry of Pelham Rosé (shown here)2. Henry of Pelham Rosé 2015, $15

This award winner is crisp and dry enough to beat the heat but can still stand to up to a barbecue dinner. (Henry of Pelham also makes a killer pink bubbly—Cuvée Catharine Rosé Brut, $30—if you’ve got the $$$ to spare.)

Canadian rosé wines under $20: We love Quail's Gate Rosé (shown here)3. Quail’s Gate Rosé 2015, $20

You’ll get melon, berries and pepper upon first whiff; on the palate it’s all raspberry, cranberry and strawberry. The perfect sipper to pair with raw oysters.

Canadian rosé wines under $20: We love Tawse Sketches Rosé (shown here)4. Tawse Sketches of Niagara Rosé 2015, $17

This rosé throws down solid wild strawberry and tart rhubarb flavours, with a long, dry finish.This is the bottle to bring to a swank dinner party.

Canadian rosé wines under $20: We love Pelee Island Lola Blush Sparkling VQA (shown here)5. Pelee Island Lola Blush Sparkling Rosé, $13

For a bubbly that pops without busting your bank account, this floral-scented, honey-ish number is just the ticket. Impromptu park hang? Buy a baguette and a hunk of sheep’s milk cheese to complement Lola’s sweetness and round out its fruit flavours.
