Blomidon Cremant 2013

Member Review by zufrieden:

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 as vanilla and dry toast. Mousse is more like Champagne as well, lingering on much longer than expected. A fantastic value. 90.

Is nestled on the edge of the Minas Basin, near Canning, in the picturesque Annapolis Valley. Our beautiful waterside setting offers a unique location for grape growing as well as a scenic stopping point for our visitors. Our guests are welcome to enjoy a stroll or picnic in our vineyard and / or purchase items from our on-site wine shop. We are committed to making the best quality wines from our vineyards. Our vineyard management is very hands on, from fruit thinning to green harvesting and then hand harvesting, our goal is to produce 100% Nova Scotia estate grown grapes which meet the high standards necessary to produce a limited amount of very good quality wine. Are you wondering why we call our premium wines "Estate" wines? Our goal is to grow all of our grapes at our two vineyards. By controlling the quality of the grapes we thereby control the quality of the final wine product. Hence "Estate" grown and bottled wine. We are very proud of our award winning estate wines, including Chardonnay, L'Acadie Blanc and Baco Noir. Below is a selection of our wines. For a complete list please contact the winery. Read less
