New York Muscat, Nova Scotia’s most aromatic grape variety was used to make this intensely aromatic and slightly copper-in-colour wine. The skins are purple but the flesh and the juice inside is clear.
Gaspereau Muscat has intense tropical fruit aromas of lychee fruit and passion fruit with hints of pink grapefruit and fresh-cut mint.
Despite the illusion of sweetness displayed by the nose, this wine finishes dry with a long grapefruit finish.
Pair with curry, crab cakes, shellfish.
Muscat is the perfect partner for dishes that express a equally intense aromatic character such as curry dishes, crab cakes and shellfish. Or try our personal favourite: mussels steamed in Muscat with onions, peppercorns and garlic. It's amazing to taste hints of the beautiful Muscat profile in the mussels and to sip a glass of Muscat along with it.
