Pale lemon in colour, Gaspereau Vineyards Seyval Blanc is a white wine beaming with rays of sunshine. The peach and honeydew melon flavours combine to present a palate that dances with ripe fruits and bright energy.
This local gem is a perfect example of how our terroir excels in the white wine category by delivering a lively and invigorating offering. It has a way of being fruit forward and vivid, but thanks to the acid structure provided by the cool climate ripening, it does not get cloying or flabby on the finish. This varietal proudly showcases its natural sweetness, but does so in a balanced way.
A wine such as this is also a great match for a variety of different cuisines—from spicy Thai dishes to creamy seafood options.
If you happen to have the delightful opportunity to visit the Amherst Shore Country Inn, you’ll find they offer delicious daily entrées to pair with this lovely wine. One of Chef Rob Laceby’s favourites is the pairing of Gaspereau Seyval Blanc with his sumptuous Sole Florentine with Lobster. You’ll enjoy the layers of flavour that the warm spinach, fresh black pepper, melted swiss cheese, and savoury paprika add to this delicate dish. A great Nova Scotian wine at a great Nova Scotian destination, a picture-perfect formula for a smile. Cheers!
