2010 Prestige Brut Estate Extended Tirage
We established L’Acadie Vineyards 17 years ago and released the first traditional method sparkling wine in Nova Scotia. 2010 Prestige Brut Estate was our first zero dosage vintage, an ambitious statement for an emerging region and only possible when all quality factors aligned after five years of tirage. We entered it into the prestigious international competition, Effervescents du Monde, held in Dijon France and were rewarded with a silver medal, bringing international attention to Nova Scotia sparkling wine and setting other Nova Scotia wineries on the path of making the style. A portion of the production was laid down for 10 years knowing it had more potential and this limited release heralds a new era in our wine region, showcasing the depth of our quality and Nova Scotia’s signature grape variety L’Acadie Blanc.
