Gaspereau Tidal Bay
This wine combines four varieties—Seyval Blanc, Vidal Blanc, Chardonnay, and New York Muscat—to create a distinct wine profile which is fast becoming a signature white wine style for Nova Scotia. These varieties are blended to create a style which is delicate and refined. It is ideally suited to Nova Scotia seafood pairings and reflects the distinct characteristics which come from grapes grown in an Atlantic maritime environment.
Gaspereau Vineyards’ Tidal Bay is an aromatic wine made from a unique blend of Seyval Blanc, Vidal Blanc, Chardonnay and New York Muscat, almost entirely made from Estate grown fruit. It has an elegant nose of apple and apricot with a hint of minerality and underlying nuances of tropical fruit and floral notes. Complex and integrated, the bouquet lingers long after the glass has been taken from your nose.
On the palate, there is a balance of sweetness, acidity and aromatics, making this wine an ideal accompaniment for Nova Scotia’s delectable seafood and shellfish. Notes of rose, orange zest and apricot present itself on the palate with a prevalent and integrated vein of minerality. A light apple flavor with hints of lychee fruit linger into a smooth yet refreshing finish.
Pair with Atlantic seafood, shellfish, scallops, mussels, curried crab cakes, lobster, aromatic cheeses, pork and chicken dishes. And, it is delightful on its own.
A wine that is so giving on the nose and palate deserves to be paired with a food equally as giving. Gaspereau Tidal Bay is an ideal accompaniment for Atlantic seafood but also pairs well with aromatic cheeses, and flavourful pork and chicken dishes.
