Lightfoot and Wolfville Brut 2016

Nova Scotia, CanadaThis Chardonnay Brut comes off their organically and biodynamically 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 approximately 12 g/L. Ripe red apple, pear ride a stony, expansive base, finishing with a lash of anise and a lingering shimmering finish. The ample dosage keeps this friendly, and ready for drinking now. Very smart.Tasted: 08 October 2021Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: NS 46.00 winery direct Producer: Lightfoot and WolfvilleGrape: Chardonnay
