Lightfoot and Wolfville Bubbly Rose (750ml)
This family-owned winery in Nova Scotia’s Annapolis Valley is dedicated to certified organic and biodynamic agriculture alongside Old World winemaking techniques.
This is Lightfoot & Wolfville’s first sparkling rose release. It is an aromatic style that is fruity, floral and fresh on the nose and palate. The grapes were hand picked between October 7th and 19th of 2015; the fruit was ripe and flavours were well developed while maintaining the required acidity for crafting a lively wine. It is a blend of mainly white aromatic grapes with a hint of Frontenac rouge for colour and structure; 27% Ortega, 18% Chasselas, 10% Geissenheim, 15% Chardonnay, 7% New York Muscat, 9% L’Acadie Blanc, 13% Riesling and 10% Frontenac Rouge. he grapes were fermented individually in stainless steel and the blend was composed after. Secondary fermentation in bottle and nine months ageing on the lees give the wine roundness and texture, while letting the primary fruit characteristics shine. Brilliant pink with fine bubbles in the glass, aromas of strawberry, rhubarb and rosewater that carry over to the palate and move towards flavours of pink grapefruit, some salinity and a bright finish.
