2019 Bubbly Rosé

A fruit-driven sparkling rosé with signature Nova Scotian freshness and fragrant floral aromatics. Secondary fermentation via Charmat Method provided a delicate and persistent bubble. Given the desired style, lees contact time was kept short to preserve freshness and purity of fruit character.

A rare late spring frost following bud break in the spring of 2018 decimated tender vine growth, devastating grape yields across Nova Scotia. Due to the residual impact of this event on cropping levels, this blend was supplemented (40%) with grapes sourced from our industry colleagues in the Niagara region of Ontario, sourced from growers who share the same philosophies for ultra premium quality, sustainable winegrowing practices. The Nova Scotia grown components were lower yielding as a result of the frost, enhancing the aromatic intensity and ultimately providing the resultant blend with its signature Nova Scotia aromatic.
