In the glass, a coral blush with rose accents. On the nose, notes of freshly bloomed orchids notes are interlaced with a myriad of sliced papayas and starfruit. A subtle effervescence invigorates the palate, with energetic suggestions of key lime and honeydew melons. A refreshingly tonic and youthful Nova 7 blessed with both brightness and vibrancy.

Each vintage of Nova 7 offers a unique taste of our evolution as a farm winery – conveying our micro-climates, growing seasons, dreams, lessons, and aspirations in every bottle.
Our collective objective is to ensure that every new release pushes the boundaries of as many of these attributes as possible.
The 2020 vintage sees the continuation of our enduring commitment to low-intervention practices – sustainably farmed fruit, no sulphites at harvest, 100% wild fermentations, and natural sugars. While these natural practices come with great risk, the possible reward of exceptional quality is too attractive to pass up.
Then, in a year that was fraught with such global challenges, we experienced a gentle and kind growing season. A wet start propelled vine growth and berry development throughout a warm summer, followed by an uninterrupted phase of phenolic maturation late in the season.
This allowed for the perfect ripening of key aromatic varietals, such as NY Muscat, Geisenheim and Ortega. A wild fermentation at very low temperatures ensures Nova 7’s delicate bubbles are carefully preserved until bottling to provide a gentle natural fizz.
This vintage possesses superlative floral and tropical aromatics balanced by an effervescent brightness. The wine’s fresh and aromatic character is complemented by a return to a coral blush hue, thanks to the abundance of Muscat grape skin contact.
We know that Nova 7 is Nova Scotia’s wine, so, as we craft each vintage we are ever-mindful of ensuring it will be embraced for its deliciousness by the people who have made it so. This is a vintage that delivers on so many of our aspirations for Nova 7.
