Avondale Sky 2014 Tidal Bay
Blend: L’Acadie Blanc, Vidal, Geisenheim, Osceola Muscat, Petite Milo
Heavy on the citrus notes and high in acidity, this crisp and sharp white is perfect when chilled to the bone and served with a light fish dish or a fresh, zesty pesto dish.

Benjamin Bridge 2014 Tidal Bay
Blend: L’Acadie Blanc, Ortega and Muscat
Luscious, well balanced, and startlingly delicious, Benjamin Bridge’s 2014 Tidal Bay vintage is a perfect introduction to the style. Not too sharp and not too sweet, this moderately dry, moderately sweet wine pairs beautifully with shellfish—especially oysters!

Luckett Vineyards 2014 Tidal Bay
Blend: L’Acadie, Ortega and Traminette
A supercharged blast of fresh lemony notes with a delightfully puckery freshness, Luckett Vineyards’ 2014 Tidal Bay is a wonderful example of a bright, crisp and sharp white that pairs beautifully with rich goat cheese, butter drenched mussels or just a warm, wonderful day on the beach.

Domaine de Grand Pre Tidal Bay
Blend: L’Acadie Blanc, Vidal, Ortega, Muscat, Seyval
A lovely, bright and well rounded Tidal Bay—a workhorse, if you will. It sits firmly in the middle of the gradient of Tidal Bays, not too sweet and not too dry, perfect for a shrimp pasta or some seared scallops.

Blomidon Estate 2014 Tidal Bay
Blend: L’Acadie Blanc, Seyval Blanc and New York Muscat
This national award winning Tidal Bay is a bit on the drier side, with a hint of sweetness to round it all out. You’ll find wonderfully refreshing hints of grapefruit, melon and a warm gust of tropical notes in this slightly off-dry white, perfectly paired with some fresh Atlantic lobster or grilled salmon.
