Blomidon Estate Winery Cuvée L'Acadie NV

Nova Scotia, CanadaFrom their estate vineyard, this is the first NV of traditional method l'acadie blanc, a smart move to cover off the vagaries of vintages in NS. From the same block each year, this bottle was 65% from 2017, with the remainder from 2016, was bottled in August 2018, spent 16 months on lees, and was disgorged in December 2019, with 6 g/L. Future vintages will have a perpetual reserve added into the mix, for additional consistency. Brisk, sharp and saline, with tight white flowers, lemon pith, crystalline lime, and a shimmering mineral salinity that pulses along to the faintly floral finish. Like all of Blomidon's fizz, this has a palpable energy and nervous tension. Dosage is necessary to balance out the acidity here, and winemaker Simon Rafuse does is deftly.Tasted: 15 May 2020Tasted by: Prices:
