L'Acadie Blanc

(aka. V53261)

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.

  • Blomidon Cremant 2013

    Snoothrank:

    This Cremant-style wine based on some local varieties (L'Acadie Blanc, e.g.) stops just short (and only just) of so-called Style Champagnois but still fortified with Brioche-light scent and white fruit (gooseberry, perhaps). The flavour is superior to ordinary Bourgogne style Cremant, with a somewhat drier finish and more Champagne notes such a... Read More

  • L'Acadie Vineyards Vintage Cuvee 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Bruce Ewert (late of the Okanagan Valley of British Columbia, Canada) has done an incredible job here in the Gaspereau Valley of Nova Scotia (in the Bay of Fundy region); the wine - made from some local varieties (L'Acadie Blanc, Seyval) and Chardonnay exudes Brioche on the nose (though admittedly light) and fine toasty bread and cookie flavours...
