Mercator Tidal Bay 2019
This product is currently sold out.
Mercator Vineyards is a 40 acre site, situated on bluff directly overlooking the Acadian Dykelands . It is influenced by the nearby Minas Basin, with its rising and falling tides. Immense volumes of relatively cold water move in and out of the Basin on a daily basis, bringing with it cool breezes that help keep Mercator's vineyards cool, our grapes healthy and to help in the retention of aromatics and acidity that develop in the grapes throughout the growing season.
Defined and subtle, the 2019 Mercator Tidal Bay reflects the over-arching style that Mercator wines encompass. Notes of apple, custard, lemon rind and subtle spicy notes are delicately expressed on the nose, allowing the fruit to convey a sense of the cool climate where it was grown. There is a unique roundness that presents itself on the palate of this wine while still remaining refreshing and bright. Notes of apple, custard
and fresh peach are expressed on the mid-palate and linger through into the off-dry finish.
