2020 Tidal Bay

At the heart of every great wine region is an emblematic style that helps define what the region does best. Nova Scotia is blessed with an incredibly unique, coastal influenced, cool-climate terroir that imparts a distinctive freshness and vibrancy in our wines. To showcase this, an official appellation – “Tidal Bay” – was created in 2012. The structure of this system is based on well-established European appellations, such as Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Vinho Verde, Soave, and Chianti, designed to help protect and promote the quality regional wines they represent. Strict viticultural and winemaking standards are regulated by an independent tasting panel. Our Tidal Bay blend is fermented in 100% stainless steel to preserve natural freshness and aromatic purity. 

Our 2020 blend is certified organic by Ecocert Canada, sourced from four beautiful organic Annapolis Valley vineyards. These include our two estate sites (the Lightfoot Home Farm in Wolfville and the Oak Island Vineyard in Avonport), and two of our growing partner vineyards (the Neatt Family Vineyard in Aylesford and Raven Hill Vineyard in Wolfville).

Tasting Notes

True to the classic Tidal Bay profile – crisp & bright with a fragrant Nova Scotia aromatic signature. Meyer lemon, minerality and apple notes dominate the palate, with a pronounced freshness, and a mid-palate weight indicative of 2020's warm growing season.

Enjoyable on its own as a refreshing summertime white or paired with fresh seafood, cheese sauces and green salads.
