Lightfoot & Wolfville 'Ancienne' Pinot Noir 2018

At Lightfoot & Wolfville there is a constant connection to the generations before us and the many ahead. A sense that this is simply our turn, our watch. Ancienne, meaning old/ancient, is a collection of the wines that we feel best represent “our turn” – the ultimate expression of our two estate vineyards and the pinnacle of our winegrowing efforts.

The label, styled to look like a page torn from an old book, depicts an illustration of a red-tailed hawk, representing our commitment to working in harmony with nature and promoting biodiversity through our farming practices. The hawk is holding a mayflower, a symbol of Nova Scotia, in his beak and an old Acadian farming tool in his talons; a tribute to those who cared for this land before us. 

Grape Variety: 100% Pinot Noir

Region: Nova Scotia, Canada

Tasting Notes: Pale ruby-red shines in the glass. Subtle, elegant and refined with notes of brambleberry, brown spice, dark cherry and sandalwood. Fine, grippy tannins that will soften over time in bottle are framed by bright acidity and red fruit flavours. 

Food Pairings: Peking/bbq duck, roasted pork, richer fish such as tuna and grilled vegetables with romesco sauce.
