Nova Scotia’s Signature Wine
Officially launched in 2012, Tidal Bay is the first wine appellation for Nova Scotia. A wine with unique character, Tidal Bay brilliantly reflects its birthplace; the terroir, coastal breezes, cooler climate, and our winemakers’ world-class craftsmanship.
In the vineyard
A typical cool-climate growing season in 2015 provided ideal ripening conditions for the aromatic white varieties that make up this blend. Our unique coastal environment provides fruit with depth of flavour, freshness and vibrancy; characteristics that define the Tidal Bay appellation.
Grapes were hand-harvested from our certified organic vineyards and grown according to biodynamic agriculture principles.
|Varietal||An aromatic blend including L’Acadie, Geisenheim-318, and Chardonnay|

In the cellar
Fermented in 100% stainless steel with precise temperature control to preserve the fresh, delicate fruit aromatics.
Production: 300 cases
In the glass
A pale yellow colour with a green hue fills the glass. On the nose, aromas of lime and lychee are accompanied by a subtle florality. A green apple flavour dominates the palate with mineral and peach accents. The finish is dry and refreshing with just enough sweetness to balance the mouth-watering acidity. Tidal Bay pairs naturally with seafood, green salads, and soft cheeses.
