100% Frontenac Gris. A beautiful savoury rose made from a blend of 90% 60-hour maceration and 10% 30-day maceration.

It's a winter baby, rugged and edgy in the best ways. This magenta-hued beauty is stylistically more akin to a light red than your average rose. Its soft, almost brie-ey nose plays against its charismatic palatte of strawberry, orange, candied lime, Rockets candy, spicy Pulparindo and juniper berry.

About the producer:

Pioneering a bright-eyed wine crusade within the extreme terroir of Quebéc, Frédéric Simon and his wife Catherine Bélanger tend to their 1.50 hectare winery with resolute sincerity and an evolving sense of place.

Discovery drives the work that they do here, with relatively new plantings of vitis vinifera such as Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier, Gamay, Cabernet Franc, Dornfelder, Chardonnay, Riesling, and Savagnin (uncommon to the area due to arduous growing conditions). All vines are tended to organically, with minimal alterations in the cellar, leading Frédéric to a series of challenges to consider when combating the extreme cold of winter and inevitable frosts of spring
