Nova 7®    

Head Winemaker: Jean-Benoit Deslauriers

2016 Nova 7 – sticker shop

Conceived by Canadian winemaking icon Peter J. Gamble, Nova 7 is a proprietary blend of signature aromatic whites, highlighting select Muscat grape varieties. Nova Scotia’s iconic wine is gently handcrafted from grapes grown along the Bay of Fundy. A category unto itself, its lively spritz, inherent acidity and elegant aromatics combine for a seductive expression of coastal terroir.

Enjoy Nova 7 chilled on its own as a crowd-pleasing apéritif or enjoy with fresh seafood, spicy fare, or summer salads. At a lower 7.0% alcohol, Nova 7 is remarkably refreshing on a hot summer afternoon, wonderfully festive during the holiday season and perfectly suited for any celebration.

Made from 100% Nova Scotia grapes, part of the wine’s broad appeal comes from its artisan nature – very minimal intervention in the cellar means each vintage reveals something special and unique from the other.

Tasting Notes, 2016 Nova 7

In the glass, a pale salmon colour with a rose petal hue. On the nose, ripe peaches and jasmine, with hints of lychee nectar. On the palate, tart cherries and mango purée, with sea minerals. An elegant display of density and substance with great aromatic complexity and quintessential brightness.
