"This attractive, pale Rosé—primarily Gamay and Cabernet Franc—offers a perfumed, expressive nose of red berry and crunchy apple with a whiff of mineral and citrus. It’s off dry, light-medium bodied and underpinned with a nice dose of acidity offsetting ripe sweet fruit. The palate rings true replaying strawberry and cranberry tinged with apple skin and citrus pith. It finishes with a cleansing touch of pungency and pairs well with an arugula-based salad with duck confit." **** (Susan Desjardins)
Pale pink in colour, with a fresh nose of crushed strawberries, pink grapefruit and cotton candy. Refreshing acidity, bright on the palate with a flavourful finish.
Selected lots of different grape varieties (mainly Gamay and Cabernet Franc) from different vineyards were drained or pressed following a short soaking with their skins, giving the juice a light purple hue. Fermented cold in stainless steel, each grape variety was kept separate in the winery and then assembled afterwards. Cold stabilized, sterile filtered, and bottled in its youth to help retain the fresh character of this wine.
