The hand crafted wines of Benjamin Bridge have helped raise the profile of the Nova Scotian wine industry.

It showcases the crispness, beautiful aromatics and signature acidity that are quickly becoming the defining characteristics of outstanding Nova Scotian wine. It is a versatile wine that can be enjoyed as an aperitif, at brunch, with friends on a sunny patio or paired with lightly spicy cuisine, fresh fruits or cheeses.
In the glass, a pale rubescent pink colour with crystalline reflections. On the nose, hints of mango puree and ripe juicy Georgia summer peaches are energized by zesty notes of key lime sorbet. On the palate, the wine refreshes immediately, with a vibrant combination of honeysuckle, lemon cream, and a touch of spring floral blossoms.
Produced in the European spirit of lightly sparkling, off-dry wines. Though Nova 7 maintains a signature style year after year, it is a vintage wine that reflects its growing season. The wine is crafted from aromatic grapes that grow along the Bay of Fundy. This year’s vintage is embraces even more natural and artisinal elements in that the wine is fermented with wild yeasts that are indigenous to the vineyard and the wine’s sweetness is directly related to natural grape sugars.
The 2022 vintage is a blend of varietal composition of Muscat, Ortega, Riesling, Geisenheim, l’Acadie, and Vidal. The folks at Benjamin Bridge are very proud of the 2022 Nova 7; stating that it strikes the perfect balance between natural vibrant acidity and fragrant floral aromatics. This wine is to be celebrated as an achievement in low-intervention winemaking, featuring no sulphites at harvest, wild fermentations, and the lowest possible interference between your glass and the vineyard.
