Dry, medium bodied, french and american oaked Maréchal Foch, Lucie Kuhlmann and Marquette based red wine blend made from 100% Nova Scotia grown grapes.
This wine was co-fermented (the grape varieties were blended prior to fermentation) in a large stainless-steel tank and macerated for four weeks to extract optimal colour and flavour from the grape skins. The wine was then pressed and aged with French and American oak while being exposed to small amounts of oxygen (micro-oxygenation) to help the wine soften and develop. The palate shows a nice balance between smooth tannins, soft acidity, fresh fruit with a lingering oak and spice finish.
