L'Acadie Vineyards Estate L'Acadie 2020
This product is currently sold out.
From the Winemaker:
Classic citrus fruit and floral notes are followed by juicy orange and peach flavours. The wine finishes dry with our signature minerality and subtle saline character derived from our ancient seabed estate.
Hand-harvested from 14-year-old vines with root systems over three feet deep that had to work for every inch through our well-drained, rocky schist and sandstone ancient seabed soil that naturally does not encourage high vigour.
This soil is why we bought our property in 2004, very different from the typical water-holding clay loam that dominates the north ridge of our valley. We encourage a living soil supported by our organic practices so that the special terroir flavours are accentuated, and this vintage shows it off with pronounced mineral texture and a touch of saline.
50% of the grapes were crushed and allowed skin contact for 24 hours before pressing. The wine was aged over the winter in stainless steel and bottled in the spring, finished dry to showcase its minerality. We choose a natural cork finish for its sustainability and finish with a beeswax seal over cork for integrity. Cork also allows the wine to develop its cellar potential and our library releases have shown longevity to 10 years of aging. Suitable for vegan diets. `
