2022 Tidal Bay
Our approach for Tidal Bay is an organic vegan wine and dry. This is our third vintage, and our inaugural
releases were described by Halifax sommelier Mark DeWolf and other wine trade as a “gamechanger” for its dryness and minerality. Tidal Bay is an appellation wine to showcase
Nova Scotia terroir, so we choose to highlight our own unique estate terroir – ancient seabed rocky soil from our Gaspereau winery.
The first pick of L'Acadie blanc grapes for this wine in September was from vines traditionally sourced for our Prestige Brut Estate, with a deeper layer of humus-rich topsoil that brings our Tidal Bay a fresh acidity & crisp citrus flavours. A later pick in October from a different vineyard block complements the freshness with richer tropical notes such as mango.
Our wine industry, and subsequently the Tidal Bay appellation, could not exist as it does without our ocean-influence from the Bay of Fundy. This year we have decided to help restore balance in our local marine ecosystem by partnering with the Canadian Whale Institute & Campobello Whale Rescue Team to help save the severely endangered North Atlantic right whale. $1 from every bottle of Tidal Bay sold in our wineshop & on our website will be donated to the Campobello Whale Rescue Team of the Canadian Whale Institute.
The first organic vineyard in Nova Scotia and the first Biocyclic Vegan
farm and winery in North America, from soil to glass.
