This highly acclaimed wine is made using the traditional method with 100% estate-grown grapes, including Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier. The 2013 vintage features intense aromas of green apple, lemon zest, and toasted nuts with a delicate effervescence that perfectly balances the wine's acidity and minerality. On the palate, it boasts flavors of creamy custard, ripe pear, and refreshing citrus, leading to a long and elegant finish. This wine is perfect for special occasions and pairs beautifully with seafood, appetizers, and creamy desserts.
In the glass, deep straw colour with a canary hue. On the nose, an evocative bouquet of tangerine oil, pastry, lemon confit and marzipan is supported by bright suggestions of sea minerals. On the palate, an effortless and elegant frame filled with structure and density is complemented by notes of lime blossom and crème de cassis. A persistent finish lingers elegantly with reverberating hints of white flowers with toasted almonds.
About the Winery
Benjamin Bridge is one of Canada’s most renowned producers and manufacturers of sparkling wine. The winery has managed to grow its fame and scale over a short period of two years. The story started in 1999 with the efforts of entrepreneurs Dara Gordon and Gerry McConnell.

For instance, it included aspects such as gender equality, worker rights, and the improvement of the economy of the Nova Scotia society. Later on in their life, Dara and Gerry became life partners. Henceforth, they shared an objective or commitment. They aimed to initiate rural living and implement their vision of responsible and sustainable agricultural and growth practices. The couple wished to grow high-quality vines and produce superior standard wines. Furthermore, they strived to farm organically on their fields located along the Bay of Fundy.
Dara and Gerry invested in numerous years of relevant research. It got inspired by the early winemakers and grape growers of the region.

Overall, Benjamin Bridge has unwaveringly remained in the singular and remarkable pursuit of reflecting the vine-growing conditions in the wine itself.
