FURTHER NOTES

Originally released to our BB Club members, this highly sought-after wine is available sitewide for a limited time.

As recently demonstrated by the powerful aromatic contribution of a significant percentage of Riesling in our 2020 Tidal Bay, this vintage was a Riesling-friendly growing season, to say the least.

This varietal was planted in Nova Scotia due in part to a traditional association with northern European regions, such as Alsace, The Danube Valley in Austria (Wachau), as well as the steep slopes on the banks of the Rhine and Mosel rivers in Germany. However, one lesser-known common denominator between these celebrated Riesling habitats is that they are also blessed with substantial continental heat units, necessary for the full aromatic development of the Riesling.

With the warm 2020 vintage providing the closest emulation to these unique conditions in our short history, it should come as no surprise that the degree of aromatic achievement is like no vintage before!

To further enhance the connection to our tidal vineyards, we implemented the use of our concrete eggs, allowing for complex textural layers while remaining more neutral than oak, placing the focus exclusively on our maritime ecosystem and its signature aromatics.
