|Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 94/100 with the following review:|
Benjamin Bridge has been making a real fizz in the sparkling wine scene over the past decade and a half. This Nova Scotia (Canada) based winery is producing sparkling wines that rival those from Champagne and other storied wine regions around the world. A combination of ideal terroir for producing crisp and complex cool climate grapes, along with creative winemaking expertise, has resulted in world-class sparkling wines, unlike no others given their unique tidal terroir, each and every vintage.
There’s a tendency to compare Nova 7 to Italy’s Moscato d’Asti, given its gentle effervescence and off-dry low alcohol style, but I must say Nova 7 is in a league of its own. Crisper, perfectly balanced, more complex, and loaded with refreshing minerality, Nova 7 is unlike no others, and many Canadians have caught on to this. Nova 7 continues to gain popularity as Canada’s favourite wine.
In its twelfth vintage now, the 2018 shows a very faint copper colour with the characteristic aromas of sweet honey suckle, marigold blossoms, asian pear, and fresh stone fruit. Lightly effervescent, the mid-palate shows creamy and sweet orchard fruit and fresh ginger, all backed with crisp and refreshing acidity on the long finish. Beautifully balanced, this off-dry wine is beautifully balanced with mouthwatering acidity and refreshing minerality making it a great choice for east coast seafood appetizers, sushi, tart berry desserts, or simply to enjoy on its own.
Tasted September 2019. 94 points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca
|L.J. Palmer rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:|
Nova Scotia sparkler with a beautiful coppery pink hue. It is light, fruity and sweet, with fine sparkling bubbles. The aroma is juicy and fruity; peach, strawberry, and mandarin orange. These flavours are all present in the taste, set off by the nicely effervescent fine bubbles and refreshing acidity. This wine is a true celebration in a glass! And it has the added bonus of being light; 6.5% alcohol. My pairing of choice is fresh strawberries and cream or ricotta.
|Lynn Van Der Linde - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
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.
