Nose

With lemon and lime aromatics, subtle pineapple notes and an unmistakable minerality, the Seyval Blanc is a wonderful expression of Nova Scotia’s cool climate terroir.

Palate

A bright acidity balanced by an off-dry sweetness, the Seyval Blanc carries notes of lemon and apple through to the palate with an underlying minerality. The sweetness is almost undetectable and is simply present to balance the refreshing nature of the wine. The wine is subtle and elegant and provides a purity of place and variety, at least partly due to its fermentation occurring at cool temperatures in a stainless steel vessel.

Notes

The Mercator Seyval Blanc an off- dry wine balanced by both a bright acidity and a lower alcohol content (9%). As a result, the wine is elegant and refreshing and an ideal wine for food. Pair this wine with salads with refreshing vinaigrettes, fresh cheeses, delicate seafood dishes or try it with oysters instead of a sparkling.
