wine-searcher.com / Acadie Blanc Wine
L’Acadie Blanc is an early-ripening hybrid variety found in selected northeastern regions of North America. Its greatest concentrations are found in Quebec and Nova Scotia – in the latter province it is the most widely planted grape variety. L’Acadie Blanc owes its parentage to the Vineland Research and Innovation Station in Ontario where it was first crossed in 1953.
Originally called V-53621, it is the result of a crossing of Seyve-Villard 14-287 and Seibel 13053 – neither parent being of particularly prestigious heritage. In the 1950s, V-53621 was being developed for use in Ontario but initial trials were not positive and the project was scrapped. However, 10 vines were sent to Nova Scotia for trial in a cooler, more maritime climate, where the grape thrived.
L’Acadie Blanc was first released as a wine at Grand Pré Winery, Nova Scotia, in the 1970s. At the time Acadian culture was undergoing a renaissance in Nova Scotia and V-53621 was renamed L’Acadie Blanc in honor of the region’s colonial heritage. Over the following 30 years, as the wine industry in Nova Scotia began to grow, plantings of L’Acadie Blanc increased accordingly.
It is now widely regarded as the best expression of Nova Scotia wine, though locking down the defining varietal signature has not been easy. In the early days L’Acadie Blanc was frequently likened to Chardonnay for its body and texture, but more recently it has been compared to Sauvignon Blanc because of its grassy, often citric aroma profile. The best examples tend to come from cooler vintages and are pale yellow in color with medium acidity.
Synonyms include: V-53621.
