Anyone looking for a solution to beating the rainy May blues we’ve been encountering lately? I may have the answer for you with this week’s wine feature. Jost Vineyards Tidal Bay is a great way to brighten up even the gloomiest of days and help you counteract the dark skies above.
Although all Tidal Bay wines are designed to represent the distinct Nova Scotia terroir, each has its own personality and traits. Jost Vineyards newly released 2016 Tidal Bay is a vibrant version that mixes fruit and floral characteristics seamlessly, and its crisp finish complements the melon and lemon meringue flavours on the palate.
And what better way to celebrate this locally inspired wine than with an equally adored seafood dish? Chef Chris Kyprianou at The Little Fish Oyster Bar has the perfect match for Jost Tidal Bay—a lobster linguini that is aimed to please. The crisp acidity of the wine contrasts nicely with the creamy sauce and the natural sweetness of the lobster is complemented by the wine’s fruit elements.
This isn’t just your typical lobster and white wine; this is the heart and soul of maritime food and wine—a pairing that will remind you of seaside sunshine. So, this Victoria Day weekend pick up a bottle or two of Jost Tidal Bay and try this pairing no matter what the weather brings. Cheers!
