Lightfoot and Wolfville Brut 2015

Nova Scotia, CanadaThis Chardonnay Brut comes off their Lightfoot Home Farm, and was mostly fermented in stainless steel (85%), with the remainder in neutral French oak barrique. Once in bottle, this aged for 45 months on lees prior to disgorgement in spring 2021 with a dosage of 12 g/L. Tight and nimble, with green apple, red apple, ruling a lees-bedded, creamy palate, lit with a shimmering stony salinity that lingers long on the palate. Quite accomplished, drinking smartly now and in years ahead.Tasted: 08 October 2021Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: NS 45.00 winery direct Producer: Lightfoot and WolfvilleGrape: Chardonnay
