Tasting Notes
Dry with enhanced minerality from estate grapes on ancient seabed soil of schist and sandstone gravels. Citrus and tropical flavours and crisp acidity with pillows of richness. Toasty notes in the background. *****David Lawrason, Wine Align judge, 90 points -"It is light bodied, dry and intense with typically taut NS acidity and a mineral and lime finish. The length is excellent." Michael Godel, Wine Align judge, 90 points - " As expected a taut, lean and mineral-elemental sparkling with citrus notes grapefruit to orange. Acidity and sapidity roll in and out like Fundy tides. Stay with this focused Gaspereau Valley fizz long enough and it will creep up, sneak in and surprise you, It's got the guts and the acumen to change gears, flesh up and accumulate in complexity. As it has been said before, wines that intimate "cogent sticks of Nova Scotian dynamite."" John Szabo, Wine Align judge, 90 points - "Good clean fun here from L'Acadie in 2017, zesty, crunchy, green apple-flavoured, with solid length and depth in the category. This is an ideal aperitif-style wine. "

Weighty and concentrated in the mouth, it shows fresh pear slices, honey and apple pastries. Complex and creamy, it also boasts and extended finish.Pair:shellfish, roast turkey or chicken, soft cheeses and creamy sauces or soups.
