Blomidon Brut Réserve 2011Annapolis Valley, Nova Scotia, CanadaThis new release is from estate grown chardonnay, with no MLF, and with 60 months on the lees before degorgement. Eventually this will evolve into the house's NV, and become their flagship wine of maritime terroir. Brilliant move. Slightly deeper in hue, this is showing the entrance of autolysis, with layers of orange rind, marmalade, chalk, light toast and salt-crusted stones. Though this has ample citrus acidity, it feels quite expansive and cushioned across the palate, thanks to the extended time on lees. The length continues to vibrato chalky, saline citrus. Very impressive.Tasted: 09 December 2018Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: NS 45.00 winery direct Producer: Blomidon Estate WineryDistributors: Le Sommelier Inc.
