Lightfoot and Wolfville Blanc de Noirs 2015

Annapolis Valley, Nova Scotia, CanadaThis Blanc de Noirs blends 84% pinot meunier and 16% pinot noir from their Oak Island Vineyard. 89% of the base wine was fermented in stainless, with the remainder in older French oak. It was aged 11 months prior to secondary fermentation, where it rested for 42 months on lees. It was disgorged in March 2020 with 10 g/L. This opens with a puff of oxidation that permeates the bready, cherry brioche, raspberry on the creamy, high acid palate. The green apple acidity holds this easily aloft, streaming it to a lingering humming, saline finish. Unreleaesd (hence, the lack of label); 993 bottles produced.Tasted: 08 October 2021Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: NS 75.00 winery direct Producer: Lightfoot and WolfvilleBlend: Pinot Meunier - Pinot Noir
