Mercator Vineyards is part of the Devonian Coast group of wineries which includes Jost Vineyards and Gaspereau Vineyards.  It is a well-known fact that quality wine begins in the vineyard. Mercator is a small boutique winery located on some of the most fertile lands in Canada. This is an area which is indivisible from the tidal effects of the Bay of Fundy. The cool climate ensures that grapes retain higher levels of natural acidity (tartaric and malic acid) essential components of flavour, which balance characteristics of ripeness and retain freshness and longevity in wine.

Tasting Notes

This is an elegant wine that expresses aromatics typical of a classic Provence Rose. Notes of perfumed orange blossom are integrated with hints of wild strawberry and passion fruit on the nose. Orange blossom and hints of red fruit are expressed on the palate of this rose, accented by a balanced and refreshing acidity and framed with minerality and a delicate structure.  The delicate structure and expressive aromatics make this an ideal food wine year round. Enjoy with Delicate dishes such as those made with local seafood, roasted chicken dishes or creamy pasta dishes or a cheese plate. 

Method

This dry and crips Provence style rose is a a blend of red Leon Millot and white grapes L’Acadie, Seyval, Muscat and barrel-fermented Petite Milo/Chardonnay.
