Celebrate life! Wow this is liquid exuberance. Moscato-grape aromas with orange zest and honeysuckle swaying in the summer breeze. Low alcohol, and some sweetness make this a great aperitif or companion to any spicy dish or one with a bit of sweetness like glazed ham, sweet potatoes etc.
Food pairings: salmon, lobster, seafood chowder, charcuterie and Dragon's Breath blue cheese.

|Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:|
Benjamin Bridge has been making a real fizz in the sparkling wine scene over the past decade. This Nova Scotia (Canada) based winery is producing sparkling wines that rival those from Champagne. A combination of ideal terroir for producing crisp & complex cool climate grapes, along with creative winemaking expertise, has resulted in world-class sparkling wines with incredible minerality and refreshing acidity.
The Nova 7 is stylistically similar to Italy's Moscato d'Asti, with its gentle effervescence, floral and orchard fruit aromas and flavours, and also produced in a off-dry low alcohol style. Unlike many Moscato d'Asti's, the Nova 7 is crisper, and loaded with refreshing minerality making it that much more versatile for pairings.
Nova 7 is a beautiful copper-hued salmon colour with a nose displaying sweet honey suckle, asian pear, and golden yellow apple notes. Slightly effervescent, the initial taste profile is of sweet orchard fruit, followed immediately by crisp refreshing acidity and a long mineral finish. Perfectly balanced, this off-dry wine is loaded with refreshing minerality making it a great choice for east coast seafood appetizers, sushi, tart berry desserts, or simply to enjoy on its own whether that be on a patio in the summer or during the holiday season to make a special toast. Benjamin Bridge sparkling wines are some of the most interesting I've tasted and I look forward to following this winery in the years to come. Tasted November 2014. 92+ points.

|Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Tasted the 2011 bright pale gold vintage in Jan 2017 (along side its younger sibling the 2014 which is salmon pink). The 2011 is a different wine albeit in the same family. 2011 is distinctively Tangy and tart with a palate of freshly peeled Thai rambutan fruit and a hint of orange blossom. Paired well with spicy Asian dishes and complemented pan fried shrimp dumplings with ease. Easy to sip on its own as well. Rated 90/100.
