Experience the unique flavors of our vegan Clarete wine, a one-of-a-kind find from our winery in Prince Edward County, Ontario. This wine is a blend of 72% Chardonnay, 14% Merlot, and 14% Cabernet franc, co-fermented on the skins to create a deliciously crushable light red. The wine has a slightly darker hue than expected, is almost ruby in color, and has great intensity.
On the nose, this Clarete wine has aromas of candied cherry, rose petal, orange rind, and a hint of green tea. The palate is light and rich, with everything hitting you at once - acids, tannins, and flavours. It's almost like a super robust rose, and it's delicious.
This Clarete wine is a one-of-a-kind find from our winery in Prince Edward County, Ontario. It's an ancient and traditional wine from Spain made by co-fermenting up to 35% red grapes with white grapes, fermented on the skins. It's made like an orange wine with an infusion of red grapes for some fruit and colour. It has a slightly prolonged maceration and appears more like a light red. We didn't expect this wine to turn out the way it did, but we love it. It has a slightly darker hue than expected, is almost ruby in colour, and has great intensity.
