Nose

Gaspereau Vineyards’ Tidal Bay is an aromatic wine made from a unique blend of Seyval Blanc, Vidal Blanc, Ortega, 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.

Palate

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 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.

Pairings

Pair with Atlantic seafood, shellfish, scallops, mussels, curried crab cakes, lobster, aromatic cheeses, pork and chicken dishes. And, it is delightful on its own.

Notes

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.
