2019 Briganti Reserve - $2 OFF

Brigantia was the goddess of the largest Celtic tribe in the north of England - the Brigantii. They constantly challenged Roman rule, and armed conflict frequently erupted when the confines of Pax Romana became unbearable. This defiance of convention echoes through the ages and the name "brigand" still describes one who plays outside the rules.

Today the vinification of hybrids such as Baco and Foch remain forbidden in Europe and yet in Canada these grapes thrive, and so we too prefer to play outside the rules, taking the best of old world and current wine cultures to create a collection of perfectly blended wines.

Tasting Notes
Notes of blueberry and strawberry with hints of myrtle, black cherry, cocoa, earth and smokey wood: soft and fruity palate with an enduring licorice and vanilla finish.
Vineyard Notes
We had an early start to summer in 2021 with a hot and dry growing season. Harvest time brought some more volatility and, thankfully, the ideal conditions, earlier on, allowed us to harvest the grapes used for this Rosé before the rains. The late summer diurnal variation was key to developing the sugars and notable colour in the skins. The Baco Noir fruit was harvested from a single block, the Foch is from from our eastern blocks. 
Production Notes
Hybrid varietals are resilient and thrive in our climate. We aged this wine in Ontario oak for 24 months.
Winemaker's Notes

Our Briganti Reserve is an expression of winemaking in Ontario. We enjoy the continued use of Ontario oak for the aging of this vintage and consider this an additional nod to the splendour of our province.
