This blend of L’Acadie and Chardonnay was grown in the Gaspereau Valley near Wolfville. It has a bright medium-light straw colour with some extremely tiny bubbles. Intense, quite complex, leesy-minerally, lemon-apple nose with some hints of toast. Very dry, medium bodied, slightly spicy, youthful, very fresh, apple-lemon flavours with citrusy-brioche notes on the lingering finish. Only 112 cases of 6 of this ready-to-drink crowd-pleaser are available at Vintages. It has 12% alcohol, 7 g/L residual sugar and a hefty 8.5 g/L total acidity with lot number L23199 on the lower part of the glass bottle. CSPC 528752

TASTING NOTE: Benjamin Bridge is a leading sparkling-wine producer, and this is its flagship expression. Expect a wine that offers impressive texture and weight, with that signature Nova Scotian freshness and vibrancy. Look for notes of toast, lemon and pear, plus exceptional energy and depth.
