L'Acadie Blanc

The white grape variety is an interspecific new variety between Cascade (Seibel 13-053) x Seyve-Villard 14-287(Seibel 4746 x Muscat du Moulin). Acadie, L'Acadie, L Acadie Blanc, La'Cadie, V 53261 and Vineland 53-261. It contains genes from Vitis aestivalis, Vitis berlandieri, Vitis cinerea, Vitis labrusca, Vitis lincecumii, Vitis riparia, Vitis rupestris and Vitis vinifera. The hybrid was crossed in 1953 by Ollie A. Bradt in Niagara-Ontario (Canada). It was then sent to the research centre in Nova Scotia, where it was named after the former French province of Acadia. The early to medium ripening vine is resistant to frost down to minus 25 °Celsius and, due to its loose berry character, to botrytis. It produces flowery, rather low-acid white wines with honey aromas. The variety is mainly cultivated in Canada in the provinces of Quebec and Ontario on 65 hectares. There are further stands in some states in the northwest of the USA. In 2016, however, only the Canadian stock was reported (statistics Kym Anderson).
