Tasting Notes

Pale gold with very fine bubbles in the glass. McIntosh apple, salty ocean air and hints of toasted brioche on the nose. Pure, precise and well structured by a backbone of classic Nova Scotian acidity. The delicate mousse adds finesse and leads the way to a persistent finish with impressive length. 

Serving Temperature: 8-10°C

Recommended Drinking: The structure and profile of this wine suggest it could be cellared for 10+ years, only gaining in complexity and depth over time.
