Estate L'Acadie

Estate L'Acadie Wine Details
Price: $12.99 per bottle

Description: Medium intensity straw colour. The wine’s bouquet shows intense green apple, grassy notes with underlying hints of tropical fruit. On the palate, the wine is medium-bodied with ripe flavours of apricot, lemon grass and honey finishing with refreshing acidity. A delightful wine when enjoyed on its own or complimented with local maritime fare.

Varietal Definition
L’Acadie Blanc is a Vineland (Ontario, Canada) hybrid of great commercial significance in Nova Scotia, Canada. Its name derives from its first commercial wine use in the Annapolis Valley region of Nova Scotia, originally settled by the Acadian French in the 17th century. The grape is well adapted to the Nova Scotian winters and a relatively early ripener. The wine in its most basic varietal form is not dissimilar to non-oaked cool climate Chardonnays made along the same lines such as Chablis. It has a naturally crisp acidity, to balance a broad, full-bodied palate with apple and citrus characteristics. Like Chardonnay, L’Acadie Blanc lends itself to a considerable number of winemaking styles. Oak fermentation and or maturation, sur lees aging and partial skin contact all contribute to very stylish and complex wines.
