Had another opportunity to try this beauty. I visited Benjamin Bridge last year, and I’m really impressed with what they are doing. These wines have very high acidity, so they won’t be to everyone’s tastes, but I think they are serious, and will get better with the viticultural and winemaking changes that have been implemented.
Benjamin Bridge Brut 2011 Nova Scotia, Canada
11% alcohol, 100% Chardonnay. Tight, pure and lemony with brisk acidity under the tightwound but elegant citrus fruits. This is so linear and focused with a lovely acid drive and potential for further development. Everything is clean, pure and in harmony. Very restrained, refined and elegant. 92/100
