Winemaker's Notes

ROSÉ, CUVÉE D’ANDRÉE

We dedicate this delightful Rosé to Madame Andrée Bosc – wife, mother and winery matriarch. We wanted to make a wine with as much joie de vivre as Madame. The vibrant pink certainly makes a statement. We were able to extract this colour by using only fully ripe grapes and by allowing an overnight cold soak to bleed out the colour from the skins. This is the old school way to make a crisp, dry Rosé. On the nose the aromas will remind you of fresh strawberries and cranberries. On the palate it is fresh and lively.

SAUVIGNON BLANC

We bottle this wine in a clear Bordeaux shaped bottle so you can see how clean and vibrant the wine is. You can also see from the colour that it’s unoaked. This is the way we like Sauvignon Blanc; fragrant with classic hints of gooseberry and citrus fruit with an herbal note on the finish. We chose to use a screwcap on this wine to signal that we believe this wine is best enjoyed young.

CHARDONNAY

This wine is barrel fermented and aged “sur lie” for up to 12 months in French oak barrels. The resulting wine is full-bodied, combining flavours of tropical fruit and melon in a concentrated, buttery style. There are also nuances of smokiness and soft, warm spice to make things interesting. This is an age worthy Chardonnay that will continue to develop for a few years in the bottle.

GAMAY NOIR

Our Gamay Noir is a medium-bodied, easy-drinking red wine. It has a purplish red colour and will remind you of cherry and berry fruit on the nose. The tannins are soft but still apparent to give a little structure. Fermentation and aging is done in stainless steel so the flavours are strictly the grape. The finish is smooth and it lingers just long enough.

PINOT NOIR, CUVÉE MICHÈLE

There are two distinct styles of Pinot in the world of wine: big, jammy fruit bombs typical of hot climates, and a more delicate, nuanced and balanced wine with silky tannins that is more typical in cool climates. Our Pinot Noir most often is described in the latter style. It should remind you of strawberries and violets on the nose with a hint of mushrooms. On the palate the tannins are nicely integrated giving the wine structure and ageability.

CABERNET-MERLOT

This Cabernet-Merlot is a classically styled blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot that has been aged for six months in French oak barrels. We use the time-honoured tradition of sourcing grapes from our various vineyards in order to combine the best flavour profiles of each site. Each variety is vinified separately then combined to create the final blend. The resulting wine is medium-bodied with layers of flavours. It will remind you of dark chocolate, raspberry and cassis. It is certainly ready to drink now but has the structure to continue to develop in the bottle for 3-5 years.

Vineyard Manager's Notes

ROSÉ, CUVÉE D’ANDRÉE

We take our Rosé very seriously. We believe that any wine we make must be made from the best grapes we can grow. This Rosé is no exception. We’ve chosen Pinot Noir to make this wine because we love the result. Notice the harvest date — we choose specific bunches in the vineyard that we believe will make the best Rosé. In each Pinot Noir block, bunches for sparkling wine are picked first, then Rosé then the rest are left to hang so they develop the maturity needed for our Estate Grown & Bottled and ‘Old Vines’ Pinot Noirs.

SAUVIGNON BLANC

The grapes for this wine were sourced exclusively from our vineyards. We hand select the fruit as it is being picked to make sure only top quality grape bunches are used. We choose fruit from several of our different vineyards; silty, mineral rich soils from those located in the Four Mile Creek sub-appellation and some from the heavier clay-based soils from the St. David’s Bench sub-appellation to add depth and character. All the while making sure we are farming our vineyards responsibly and sustainably, like we have done since 1978.

CHARDONNAY

Chardonnay is one of the most widely planted varieties in the world. There are more than 40 different clones of Chardonnay and we believe we have indentified and planted the right ones for our vineyard sites. All the Chardonnay for this single vineyard wine is grown on the East side of the Château. There is a gradual but significant slope from the back of the vineyard down towards York Road to the North. This is important because it helps the under-drainage system work even more efficiently. It also helps the underground artesian water flow from the Escarpment towards the road under the vineyard so the long vine roots can pull up the limestone, calcium and other minerals that have dissolved into the water. This is expressed in the finished wine as minerality, one of the signature flavours found in wines grown on our St. David’s Bench Vineyard.

GAMAY NOIR

We believe we are custodians of the land and have been practicing sustainable agriculture right from the beginning. Our practices include never using herbicides; we control weeds by tilling them into the soil where they add nutrients; our cellars are geothermal environments where heating and air conditioning are not needed at any time during the year. These are just a few examples of our environmentally friendly practices both in the vineyards and in the winery.

PINOT NOIR, CUVÉE MICHÈLE

Pinot Noir is known the world over as the “heart break grape” because of how difficult it is to grow well. The slightest bit of moisture in the air can spell trouble so it is critical that we stay vigilant during the growing season. Our sustainable practices mean we are in the vineyards routinely, so we can spot the beginnings of a problem and stop it from developing.

CABERNET-MERLOT

TThe grapes for this wine were grown exclusively in our vineyards. We believe we are custodians of the land and have been practicing sustainable agriculture right from the beginning. We made this Cabernet-Merlot by selecting grapes from more than one of our vineyards. The tradition of sourcing grapes from different vineyards adds character and dimension to wine, and this is a fine example. Our vineyards thrived by very carefully managing the yield from each vine. The result was fully mature, ripe grapes that were brimming with flavour.

Bosc Family Food Pairings

ROSÉ, CUVÉE D’ANDRÉE

For us, Rosé is the one wine that will pair with anything. If we’re having a tough time finding a match for a particular dish, we know we have our Rosé in our hip pocket. We have enjoyed it with beef satay, with a thick and juicy burger off the grill and even a summer field greens salad topped with a pan-seared sea scallop. When in doubt, Rosé!

SAUVIGNON BLANC

Sauvignon Blanc has gained popularity over the past couple of years. We think it’s because it’s fresh and easy drinking but the zip of acidity also makes it a versatile food wine. Our Sauv Blanc is a great example of this style. It works well with salads topped with vinaigrettes as well as simple oysters on the half shell.

CHARDONNAY

This Chardonnay has an elegance and finesse that we love to pair food with. It is a full-bodied white wine, but the judicious use of oak doesn’t overwhelm the accompanying dish. Try it with gnocchi in a brown butter and sage sauce with a little crispy pancetta crumbled on top.

GAMAY NOIR

Our Gamay Noir is delicious with tomato-based pasta and lighter grilled dishes. Because it is unoaked we like to chill the bottle for a few minutes on a hot summer day and enjoy it on the patio at lunch with grilled chicken breast sandwiches.

PINOT NOIR, CUVÉE MICHÈLE

The classic Burgundian pairing of Pinot Noir and locally raised lamb can certainly apply in Ontario with many farmers raising lamb. Try this Pinot Noir with a lamb burger fresh off the grill topped with caramelized onions.

CABERNET-MERLOT

This is an easy pick for an everyday red. It pairs well with spaghetti and meatballs, pizza and BBQ hamburgers.
