Benjamin Bridge vineyards are located in the heart of the Gaspereau Valley on the Bay of Fundy, where the cool climate bears an uncanny affinity with the Champagne region of France. The estate makes a range of wines;sparkling, white, red, rose, dry and sweet. Though the focus is on making world-class Méthode Classique sparkling wines that have been compared in tastings to Champagne. The hand crafted wines of Benjamin Bridge have helped raise the profile of the Nova Scotian wine industry.

Tasting Notes

In the glass, deep straw colour with a canary hue. On the nose, an evocative bouquet of tangerine oil, pastry, lemon confit and marzipan is supported by bright suggestions of sea minerals. On the palate, an effortless and elegant frame filled with structure and density is complemented by notes of lime blossom and crème de cassis. A persistent finish lingers elegantly with reverberating hints of white flowers with toasted almonds.

Method

It is not only terroir that puts these wines at the level of the French prestige cuvées. Under the expert guidance of winemakers Peter J. Gamble, Jean-Benoit Deslauriers and the late Raphaël Brisbois, Benjamin Bridge sparklings are made in the laborious and time-consuming Méthode Classique.  The 2016 Brut is 100% Chardonnay, harvested at 18 brix.  Second fermentation in bottle with 4 years of ageing sur lies.  The dosage is 11g/L.
