Nova Scotia’s Premiere White Wine. A wine with unique character, Tidal Bay brilliantly reflects its birthplace: the terroir, coastal breezes, cooler climate and our winemakers world-class craftsmanship. It has a distinctive brightness in the glass. The nose is fresh, with light citrus and stone fruit character. The palate is crisp with a hint of balancing residual sweetness. This is a blend of 30% L’Acadie Blanc, 20% Ortega, 20% Seyval, 20% Vidal and 10% Muscat.
It reminds me a bit of a Sauvignon Blanc in the taste profile. We reduced the Muscat component but it still shows the tropical fruit characteristic in the background. But the more prominent flavours are like green apple, lime and gooseberry. Overall just very aromatic and refreshing. -Jurg Stutz, Winemaker at Domaine de Grand Pre
