April 2022
Spring is in the air—and in your glass. Our latest release focuses on fresh fruit and fragrant spring herbs in every sip. Spruce, chamomile, lavender, and rosemary plant us in the heart of a budding garden, ready to pop open a bottle of Proxies and picnic in style.

Sauvage

(crisp, herbal)

A longtime Proxies favorite, Sauvage is a new form of flavor rooted firmly in the treasures of our Canadian home soil. Crisp apples mesh with green spruce tips and spicy cedar, blazing a trail through an untouched evergreen grove in the early spring. Sauvage is pure forest terroir in a glass—in short, it’s the perfect picnic pairing.

Mistral

(lush, floral)

A nose full of juicy apricot bursts out of the glass, complemented by floral chamomile, honeyed dried persimmon, and rich chardonnay grapes sourced from Burgundy. Vibrant verjus brings energy to the lush layers of stone fruit, while a hit of fragrant rosemary lingers in the background. A true seasonal specialty, Mistral is fresh, yet warm—just like a spring breeze.
