Canada — Nova Scotia • $49.95 • 91/100

Benjamin Bridge is Nova Scotia’s premier producer of sparkling wine, in this case a traditional method Chardonnay. The wine is pale straw in colour, with a complex nose ranging from lemon-lime and green apple fruit, mint and green herbs, and a toasty element with a hint of white chocolate. While technically off-dry, the acidity is so searingly high that the residual sugar is very difficult to detect. Even after five years in bottle, the palate is incredibly fresh and youthful, again I expect because of that acidity, and all of this implies that there is a very lengthy drinking window if the wine is properly cellared. Well worth a WineDiscovery exploration. • Tasted 2017-07-08 • LCBO id#381533 • Find it at your nearest LCBOLIFFORD WINE & SPIRITS (Agent)
