Reviews and Ratings

Christian Marcoux rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A delicious and fruity wine by Avondale Sky, the Tidal Bay 2020, from Nova Scotia, Canada, delivers pleasant aromas of green apple, pear, apple blossom, lime, saline and seashell. A blend of Acadie Blanc, Frontenac Blanc, Vidal, Osceola, Muscat and Geisenheim (grapes that can survive our cold winters) provide a light body and silky acidity. The wine in an obvious pairing with seafood or can also be enjoyed on a hot summer day. Palate: green apple, unripe peach, lemon, apple blossom, brine and graphite. Did you know that to obtain the Tidal Bay designation, all wines must be made from specific grape varieties, include 100% Nova Scotia-grown grapes, follow a strict set of standards, and be approved every year by an independent blind tasting panel, what else. Enjoy.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
