Lynn scored this wine: 91/100

This Nova Scotian winery is known for making beautiful sparkling wines, and this off-dry variety doesn't disappoint. Lovely floral and white cranberry aromas fill the glass, carrying through to a sweet ginger flavour, with a soft yet persistent fizziness. Beautifully paired with cream sauce dishes. Tasted November 2019.

Elegant structure and beautifully balanced. Aromas of dark red berries, vanilla, and a hint of mint carry through to a velvety mouthfeel, and a long spicy finish. Wonderful with a variety of meals, especially cured meat and cheese boards. Enjoy now or cellar for a few more years. Tasted November 2019.
