Luminous straw-gold in the glass. On the nose, zesty orange peel and grapefruit pith notes are softened by dried chamomile and white pepper accents. Bright, stony and textured with crunchy acidity.
The Lightfoot & Wolfville Terroir Series is a collection of small-lot wines with a distinct sense of place. The label imagery reflects this theme and helps tell the story of the land where the Sauvignon Blanc grows. Dandelions, cow horns, and barn swallows represent the biodynamic growing practices, while apple blossoms represent the Annapolis Valley region and the wild apple trees that surround this vineyard.
From just 1-acre of Sauvignon Blanc vines grown in the Oak Island Vineyard in Avonport. Hand-harvested and whole cluster pressed. Barrel fermented with wild yeasts in used French oak – a combination of barriques and one demi-muid. Aged eight months sur lie prior to bottling.
