Mercator Tidal Bay 2017

Mercator Vineyards’ prime location near the Bay of Fundy provides optimal sun exposure and cool tidal breezes—the perfect conditions to ripen grapes for Tidal Bay, Nova Scotia’s signature appellation. 

Mercator Tidal Bay is a blend of Vidal Blanc, L’Acadie Blanc and Petite Milo. Grown in our unique coastal terroir, these grapes express characteristics that contribute to the overall complexity of the wine. 

This wine is focused and vibrant with distinct citrus notes of fresh lemon and grapefruit rind supported by a prominent backbone of minerality. The palate is crisp and refreshing yet carries enough body and a hint of sweetness to create a persistent finish. Wonderful on its own or the perfect complement to Atlantic Canada’s seafood.

Palate

On the palate, green apple with fresh cut mint combine with a refreshing acidity and a slight off-dry finish to create this signature white wine.
