Jost Ceilidh

SMOOTH · LIVELY · JAMMY

Describing a ceilidh is like describing a great wine — words don’t quite suffice. Echoing the tastes of a Nova Scotia Ceilidh — a kitchen full of berries, a sweet melody, ready to accompany a meal with friends old and new. It’s a gathering that is more than a party — it’s a celebration.

Nose

Fruity, all sorts of berries like strawberry, blackberry, raspberry, blueberry, elderberry and there is a jammy quality to the heavier fruit aromas. The berries are kept in control by some vanilla, cedar and a mint-like herbaceousness at the core bringing a light vibrancy to the nose.

Palate

A touch off-dry, smooth and silky, good structure, strawberry, sour cherry, a touch of plum, there is a fullness/creaminess to the mid-palate which then hands off to more rustic/earthy characteristics with a fresh eucalyptus vein that creates depth and keeps the wine fresh.

Notes

A well-structured, well-balanced, off-dry, medium-bodied red wine. Multiple layers of fruit aromatics balanced with a gamey/earthy touch with a fresh minty/eucalyptus that plays well off the fresh acidity, which in turn is balanced by the slight sweetness.

Varietals

Marechal Foch, Baco Noir
