To celebrate, Southbrook Vineyards will be releasing their 2014 Triomphe Cabernet Franc Rosé to the LCBO on June 22, under their Wines To Watch program.

Triomphe Cabernet Franc Rosé 2014- $19.95
Medium pink in colour, this Rosé is an ideal match with almost any type of cuisine, especially Mediterranean. “Made from 100% organic fruit this lovely Rosé had a delightful nose of raspberry, cherry and rhubarb that’s focused and inviting. Everything is in balance on the palate, nothing over the top, with red fruits and a touch of dried herbs with a clean, crisp finish”- Rick VanSickle WinesInNiagara
The LCBO Wines To Watch program is a rotating collection of premium Ontario wines. Available in 62 stores, this program allows Ontarians access to some limited volume, uniquely delicious wines from our province’s vineyards. A complete list of participating stores is found here.

Triomphe Cabernet Franc 2013-$21.95
“This very elegant Cabernet Franc exhibits a pretty ruby colour with and a hugely aromatic profile – very distinctive with notes of green herbs, cassis and lavender. Palate has a pleasant viscosity and is silky smooth with very fine tannins. Great integration of flavours with crunchy sea salt and acids providing refreshment and succulence.”- 90 points – Sara d’Amato Wine Align
