Lightfoot and Wolfville Blanc de Blancs Extra Brut 2014

Nova Scotia, CanadaFrom a low cropping block on their home estate in Wolfville, this chardonnay was native fermented in older French barrels before partial MLF and 4 years lees aging. After disgorgement with 4 g/L, this rested another year in bottle before release. Tight and nervy, this is positively vibrant with lemon pith and peel over green apple, atop a deeply pristine chalky base. This shimmers long on the saline finish. Such a deeply impressive wine now, and with years to come. TA 12, pH 2.94.Tasted: 08 October 2021Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: NS 65.00 winery direct Producer: Lightfoot and WolfvilleGrape: Chardonnay
