Description

Benjamin Bridge Nova 7 2018

Benjamin Bridge Nova 7 is crisp, beautifully aromatic and has a signature acidity. A nose of freshly blooming orchids interlacing with papaya and starfruit accents. Soft and subtly effervescent on the palate. Bright and vibrant fruit flavours of key lime, starfruit and honeydew melon with a clean hit of minerality in the finish.
 
Fun fact: 'Nova' is in reference to Nova Scotia where the wine is made and '7' is for it inaugural vintage in 2007.

A blend of Muscat varietals, Geisenheim and Ortega that grow along the Bay of Fundy. Enduring commitment to low-intervention practices: farming fruit sustianably, no sulphites at harvest, 100% wild fermentations, and natural sugars.
Hand crafting this sparkling wine using the Charmat method. Fermentation with wild yeasts indigenous to the vineyard at very low temperatures. This ensures the wine's delicate bubbles preserve until bottling to provide a gentle natural fizz.
 

Drinking window: until 2024.
