Natalie's Score: 88/100

Almond toasty with mouth-watering notes of green apples and lime zest. This wine is named after Samuel de Champlain who mapped Nova Scotia during the earliest French and Acadian settlements. The wine is a blend of Seyval Blanc and L'Acadie Blanc. A solidly-made bubbly that makes a terrific aperitif.

Sparkling Wine food pairings: aperitif, oysers, seafood, fruit desserts, cheeses.

Let's Celebrate! This sparkling is an explosion of bubbles, with refreshing aromas and flavours of citrus, apple, pear, nuttiness and a touch of yogurt. Great wine for white fish, fried calamari, and oysters.

This is a light gold sparkling, with good medium bubbles. There are some citrus, apple flavours, balanced with a medium acidity and a fresh zesty finish. Great bubbly from NS!

A semi-sweet sparkling wine from Nova Scotia's beautiful Annapolis Valley. Sweet apple aromas , large bubbles and dominant red apple flavours.
great choice with a vanilla cake or trifle.
This traditional method sparkling wine is named for Samuel de Champlain who mapped Nova Scotia during the earliest French and Acadian settlements in what was then l'Acadie. It's a great start served prior to a meal or alongside various appetizers such as local seafood.
