Natalie's Score: 88/100
Almond toasty with mouth-watering notes of green apples and lime zest. This wine is named after Samuel de Champlain who mapped Nova Scotia during the earliest French and Acadian settlements. The wine is a blend of Seyval Blanc and L'Acadie Blanc. A solidly-made bubbly that makes a terrific aperitif.
Sparkling Wine food pairings: aperitif, oysers, seafood, fruit desserts, cheeses.

Let's Celebrate! This sparkling is an explosion of bubbles, with refreshing aromas and flavours of citrus, apple, pear, nuttiness and a touch of yogurt. Great wine for white fish, fried calamari, and oysters.

This is a light gold sparkling, with good medium bubbles. There are some citrus, apple flavours, balanced with a medium acidity and a fresh zesty finish. Great bubbly from NS!

A semi-sweet sparkling wine from Nova Scotia's beautiful Annapolis Valley. Sweet apple aromas , large bubbles and dominant red apple flavours.
great choice with a vanilla cake or trifle.
|Philippe Perreault, Sommelier rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:|
This sparkling is made of traditional method (like Champagne).
It's a blend of Seyval Blanc and L'Acadie Blanc.
The bubble are medium and very persistent.
Aromas of lime, a little bit nuts and toasted bread and apple.
On the palate, this sparkling is fresh, medium-bodied and long.
Pair it with shellfish, cheese or take it like aperitif.
Serve it at 5-6 degrees.
Ready to drink.
|This traditional method sparkling wine is named for Samuel de Champlain who mapped Nova Scotia during the earliest French and Acadian settlements in what was then l'Acadie. It's a great start served prior to a meal or alongside various appetizers such as local seafood.|
