Reviews and Ratings

Lightfoot & Wolfville Ancienne 2017 Annapolis Valley Chardonnay is a wild-ferment, cool-climate and barrel-fermented Chard mouth-watering with ripe golden apple, lemon zest and tropical fruit flavours wrapped up in a creamy, flinty mineral finish. Very elegant. Pair with grilled Atlantic salmon or Steelhead steaks. - Community Wine Reviews
