We are thrilled to announce that our 2021 Mercator Tidal Bay has been awarded top honours at several prestigious Canadian wine competitions.
It was awarded both a gold medal at the 2022 Finger Lakes International Wine Competition and silver at 2022 WineAlign National Wine Awards of Canada.
The 2021 Mercator Tidal Bay is a blend of L’Acadie Blanc, Riesling, New York Muscat, Chardonnay, and Petite Milo. Refined and subtle, Mercator’s Tidal Bay reflects the overarching style that Mercator wines encompass, allowing the fruit to convey a sense of the cool climate where it was grown. Notes of apple, custard, lemon rind and subtle spicy notes are delicately expressed on the nose. There is a unique roundness that presents itself on the palate still remaining refreshing and bright. Notes of apple, custard and lemon curd are also expressed on the mid palate and linger through into the off-dry finish.
Come sample it yourself as part of our Flagship Flight, Forerunner Flight, and our Mercator Experience Flight. Or purchase our Tidal Bay to take home with you ~ in either the 750mL bottle format or 250mL can.
Thank you to our Head Winemaker Gina Haverstock, Becca Griffin and the whole winemaking team. Congratulations to all of our fellow award-winning Canadian wineries.
