If you are anything like me, and enjoy a little surprise every now and again, then this wine should be on your ‘must try’ list. Immediately, you will be intrigued by the intoxicating aroma of the Gaspereau Vineyards Muscat that displays juicy lychee fruit, fragrant rose petals, and an exotic spice blend. As you take your first sip, these flavours combine with ripe grapefruit notes that end with a dry (yes, dry!) finish, creating an unexpected refreshing and clean finale ... a definite party for your senses.

Although the initial impression of this wine would provide an expectation of sweetness due to its abundant aromatic nature, the dry and fresh palate excite you with something totally different. Being intensely perfumed, with floral and tropical notes, this style of wine is a perfect match for exotic cuisine, including Thai, Vietnamese, and Indian food. And if you are fortunate enough to have Raj Gupta, celebrated executive chef at the Westin Nova Scotian, create a dedicated dish specifically for this wine, you know you can’t go wrong. Check out Raj’s recipe for Digby Scallops with Coconut, Cilantro, and Mousseline, and prepare it at home after grabbing a bottle (or 2!) of the Gaspereau Muscat ($19.99 at select NSLC locations). Experience the precision of this pairing and how one plus one can equal way more than two ... Cheers!
