Benjamin Bridge NV Méthode Classique NV

Gaspereau Valley, Nova Scotia, CanadaAs unique as the story behind this iconic Canadian winery, this NV is from BB's Gaspereau Valley estate vineyard, and a blend of L’Acadie, vidal, seyval, pinot noir, and chardonnay. Highly pointedly and pinkly perfumed: think pink florals, pithy pink grapefruit, tight pink lady apples. The attack is brisk and lively with high-toned florals from the l'acadie, vidal and seyval. Lime pith lingers on the finish, textured with pear skin. The raging acidity easily carries the 13 g/l dosage, leaving it barely and pleasingly off-dry. The Benjamin Bridge reserve library spans over 13 years and includes blending components from its inaugural 2002 vintage all of which contributes to the house style. Big enough for duck, fresh enough for oysters.Tasted: 01 December 2017Tasted by: Treve Ring & Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 30.00 private wine shops Producer: Benjamin BridgeDistributors: Winery Direct
