Reviews and Ratings

Lise Charest Gagne rated this wine as 95/100 with the following review:

If you want to impress your guests this is the wine for you. One word comes to mind when I taste this, UNIQUE, well I lied also DELICIOUS. A blend of 15 aromatic white grapes grown 100% in Nova Scotia on the Bay of Fundy. Lively fizz dances in the glass surrounded by a peachy pink brilliant hue. Aromas of peach, honey, country roses and candied ginger. Flavors or more honey, roses and citrus fruit. It’s a unique bold yet elegant hit of acidity and sweetness WOW! It’s a fusion of racy and happy and exciting on the palate. It reminds me of sweet tarts. I would enjoy it with something spicy but usually end up drinking two bottles in my hottub when I can find it!
Valérie Dufour - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 94/100 with the following review:

Friends of mine moved from Nova Scotia and brought this amazing wine for supper. Beautiful oeil de perdrix (light pink) robe with a nose... I could have smelled this wine for a long time. Nice aromas of Melba peach, honeydew melon, rose petals and clementines. The mouth delivers as well with great balance between acidity and fruit and a nice effervescence. I would compare it with a moscato d'Asti for the way it is so easy to drink (but it is not as sweet as a moscato) with a low alcohol level. Very high quality and highly addictive. Pretty versatile. You can serve it with foie gras, with cheese, with a nicotine salad or have it on its own. Coup de coeur.
