Compass Rose is a classic Provence- style Rose and the first rose wine made at Mercator Vineyards in the Annapolis Valley.  

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. Delicate dishes such as those made with local seafood, complex roasted chicken dishes or creamy pasta dishes are some suggested pairings. Compass Rose also pairs well with an array of cheeses and serves well as an aperitif.

Method

A blend of red Leon Millot and white grapes L’Acadie, Seyval, Muscat and barrel-fermented Petite Milo/Chardonnay.
