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.  

Over the past 25 years, Benjamin Bridge have honed a unique ability to adapt and create a portfolio of wines diverse in style but
connected in quality. The Wild Rock collection showcases a signature house style developed over decades of winemaking
experimentation, learning, and expertise. In any given year, the varietal compositions may differ, but these crowd-pleasing classics will always be aged and assembled to capture the craftsmanship and undeniable deliciousness that have made Benjamin Bridge
wines a local tradition and an international success.

Tasting Notes

In the glass, a delicate salmon colour with a blush hue. The nose reveals stunning aromas of grapefruit, spring flowers, guava, lemon and a touch of sea minerals. On the palate, the wine is vibrant and full of energy, featuring a myriad of flavours ranging from juicy peaches to ripe cherries and white tea. The finale is long and lingering, with enduring notes of rose petals and wet stones.

Method

This rosé is crafted from the oldest planting of Cabernet Franc in Nova Scotia, located on the Habitant Estuary.  The grapes were planted in 2001 by Al McIntyre, his daughter, Alanna and his future son in law, Flavio Racca.  This property has been owned and managed by Benjamin Bridge since 2016. This resilient parcel is now more vibrant than ever having made it through many threats, from hurricanes to frost, it can now express the complexity and textures that only older vines can provide.  TA 9.45 g/L,  RS 8 g/L.
