Benjamin Bridge Tidal Bay bottle

Just like Chianti, Beaune, or Napa, Tidal Bay is an appellation—a geographic area where a precise style of wine is made. Nova Scotia is an emerging region with a climate so challenging that only certain wine grapes can ripen reliably, such as Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, or hybrids that are bred specifically for ultra-cool, super-short growing seasons. Benjamin Bridge’s interpretation of the Tidal Bay style is centred on the astonishingly fine hybrid called L’Acadie Blanc, developed in 1953 in Niagara. Two little-known aromatic grapes join L’Acadie: the hybrid Ortega, and Giesenheim, which is a Riesling-cross. Delicate white flowers, peach, and a hint of honey grace the nose, and green melon and lime fruit flavours zing across the palate. It’s a brisk, refreshing, and subtly saline wine, clearly honouring its coastal origins. Fruity but with a super-zesty finish, it’s utterly smashable with scallop ceviche, or perhaps a Nova Scotia lobster roll, as you proudly salute Canada’s sesquicentennial.
