L’Acadie Blanc is a Vineland (Ontario, Canada) hybrid of great commercial significance in Nova Scotia, Canada. Its name derives from its first commercial wine use in the Annapolis Valley region of Nova Scotia, which was originally settled by the Acadian French in the 17th century. The grape is a relatively early ripener and well adapted to the Nova Scotian winters.
The wine in its most basic varietal form is not dissimilar to non-oaked cool climate Chardonnays, such as Chablis. It has a naturally crisp acidity, to balance a broad, full-bodied palate with apple and citrus characteristics. Like Chardonnay, L’Acadie Blanc lends itself to a considerable number of winemaking styles. Oak fermentation and/or maturation, sur lees aging and partial skin contact all contribute to very stylish and complex wines.
