Lightfoot and Wolfville Small Lots Sparkling Chenin Blanc 2016

Annapolis Valley, Nova Scotia, CanadaFrom their organic and biodynamic Oak Island Vineyard, this chenin spent 19 months on lees, and was finished with a Brut dosage 12 g/L. This is deeply stony and amply perfumed with chenin's honeysuckle and pear, lit from within by the site's bony soils, and positively vibrato with the grape and region's intense acidity. There's an anise / lemon verbena note that plays against the intense perfume, making this mouth filling sparkler quite a distinct wine. Chenin fans need check this out. The high acid sparkler will also reward with time in cellar, as chenin does.Tasted: 08 October 2021Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: NS 55.00 winery direct Producer: Lightfoot and WolfvilleGrape: Chenin Blanc
