2013 Blanc de Blanc Extra Brut Late Disgorged

All grapes for this wine were hand-harvested from our estate vineyard in Wolfville, Nova Scotia, farmed according to organic and biodynamic principles. 

The 2013 growing season saw ideal conditions during the fall ripening period: relatively warm, dry days and cooler nights, resulting in full fruit concentration, balanced by Nova Scotia's signature acidity to give a vibrant, yet complex sparkling wine.

Tasting Notes

Yellow-gold and fine, persistent bubbles in the glass. Layered aromas of baked McIntosh apple and toast, with smoky flint undertones. Lemon meringue and creamy mousse harmonize with lively acidity and a toasty depth.

A most suitable choice for special celebrations. The dry profile, elevated acidity, and pronounced minerality make this a very adaptable food wine and particularly adept at balancing rich flavours. Classic pairings include oysters, shellfish, brie style cheeses, and butter cream sauces. 

Serving Temperature: 8-10°C
