The 2019 vintage of the Borealis rosé method charmat sparkling wine has been approved by the VQA and is now available.
Made with the Gamay Noir grape, the Borealis has aromas of fresh and tart berries. The Borealis is fruity and dry on the palate and surprisingly rich for a charmat method wine.
The excellent acidity and persistent bubbles lead to a long, fresh, mineral finish. Delicious sipper, with or without food.
Named after the breathtaking pink Aurora Borealis we saw while picking Chardonnay on Danny Lenko’s farm at night on October 30th, 2003.
The Borealis is essentially the pink partner to the Whitecap Method Charmat but we thought of this one first.
The Borealis achieves its bubbles by undergoing a secondary fermentation in a large stainless steel Charmat tank. The process was first discovered by French winemaker Eugene Charmat in 1907 and today is most commonly used in the production of prosecco. The Borealis is a very fresh, aromatic and flavourful sparkling wine with balanced acidity on the palate. Enjoy now.
Price (includes HST and bottle deposit): $24.00
You are correct, something looks different. We have updated the colour of the label & have switched to a clear bottle to show off the pretty pink hue. Otherwise everything you expect from the Borealis remains the same. Your powers of observation are impressive!
