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 2017 gave a low 1.5 tonnes/acre, 22 hectolitres per hectare. 

Decanter World Wine Awards: Gold, 95 points - The first-ever Decanter gold for Nova Scotia. This marks the fourth consecutive vintage of Prestige Brut Estate to win awards at Decanter - 2013: 92 points, 2014: 92 points, 2015: 88 points

Judges' comments: "Pretty and attractive, with white fruit, honey melon, chalky green apple and lifted floral aromatics lead through to a palate of vibrant acidity, citrus curd and a fine, saline finish."

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
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, mandarin rind and peach.
