Lightfoot & Wolfville 'Fauna' 2020

Fauna is a fruit-driven red blend with a bright, berried lushness and a lightness in structure indicative of our ultra cool-climate in Nova Scotia. A partial carbonic maceration contributes amplified fruit flavours, velvety texture and immediate drinkability. 

The relatively warm and dry growing season of 2020 contributed ripe dark-fruit flavours to our Fauna blend, which was sourced from the organic Raven Hill Vineyard in Wolfville and the Johnston Vineyard in Falmouth. 

Grape Variety: Leon Millot, Petite Pearl & Marquette

Region: Nova Scotia, Canada 

Tasting Notes: Deep ruby red in the glass. Juicy dark fruit - plum, dark cherry, and violet on the nose with savoury undertones reminiscent of dried tobacco leaf. Light-to-medium bodied, Fauna is a quaffable and refreshing style of cool-climate red wine that finds its ideal setting on our woodfired pizza patio.
