Benjamin Bridge NV Rose (750ml)
Benjamin Bridge is a sparkling wine house nestled in Nova Scotia’s picturesque Gaspereau Valley on the Atlantic coast. Its cool climate is moderated by the powerful Bay of Fundy promoting natural acidities and long ‘hang-time’ of the classic Champagne varietals, which are critical to producing sparkling wines of richness, structure, and finesse.
In the glass, a classic pale rosé colour. On the nose, the wine displays suggestions of white cherries and strawberry rind with abundant sea minerals undertones. The palate is luscious, but with good intensity and vibrancy. Hints of green apples and dried cranberries are magnified by the wine’s bright structure, unfolding in a lengthy mineral finish.
Non-vintage rosés are a blend of several different harvest years to provide a continuous house style but with a hint of pink colour resulting from a skin soak of the Pinot Noir component. It is a blend of 55% L’Acadie, 30% Chardonnay and 15% Pinot Noir. Similar to the Benjamin Bridge NV, the NV Rosé is aimed at consistently capturing the intriguing qualities of our Maritime climate – freshness, richness, minerality, and salinity. It is approachable, fruit-forward and playful.
