2019 Vintage Cuvée
2019 was an excellent year for sparkling wine! It was a wet cool growing season aggravated by Hurricane Dorian in September which snapped several end posts but left the vineyard relatively unscathed. Thankfully a long frost-free fall fully ripened grapes for sparkling.
The blend is fully ripened L'Acadie blanc from our organic estate vineyard (88%) and organic Seyval blanc from Falmouth. Aged sur lie for 12 months before first disgorging. Finished with a higher dosage than our Prestige Brut but still to the customary brut style.
Silver medal and 90 points at 2022 National Wine Awards of Canada. Continues a legacy of awarded vintages, a trifecta of 90, 92, 90 for 2017, 2018 and 2019.
