2015 Prestige Brut Estate
Prestige Brut Estate is grown on our estate on the south side of Gaspereau Valley, planted in 2005 on deep schist, sandstone and sand- an ancient seabed. A three year terroir study conducted by French Bordeaux experts revealed that the grapevine roots are three feet deep and they have worked for every inch. Cropping yield is naturally balanced with moderate vigour and 2015 gave a low 1.5 tonnes/acre, 22 hectolitres per hectare. The wine was aged 69 months sur lie and with its significant mineral backbone it can age further in the bottle post disgorgement. Traditional methods of hand riddling and disgorging to ensure utmost quality. Toasty brioche aromas are dominant with signature mineral and a slight saline essence owing to the ancient seabed origins of our soil and proximity to the Bay of Fundy. This vintage also boasts characters of walnut, creamy, honey and peach.
