A new winery in Nova Scotia has started selling high-end fruit wines. Luckett Vineyards of Garpereau Valley near the historic town of Wolfville produced and is distributing a line of fruit wines that are now selling like hot cakes.
Pete Luckett, the famed specialty food grocer, well known as a leader in food and beverage innovation has officially opened his new winery this month to great fanfare and so far, the rave reviews are flowing in.
Here is the list of the fruit wines available and I urge you to try the wines if you can an let me know what you think!
Helena Sparkling Apple & Blackcurrant
Fortified black currant liqueur and traditionally-made Annapolis Valley sparkling cider mingle in this flirty rose. Crisp, bright and refreshing, our Sparkling Cider captures the essence of Nova Scotia’s sunshine. Helena’s delicate bubbles are ideal to enjoy as an aperitif before a festive meal and a brilliant match for Nova Scotian lobster, smoked salmon, oysters and tapas.
Scarlett Apple Cranberry Wine
Easy drinking and suitable for any occasion, our Cranberry Apple wine is as pleasing to the tongue as it is to the eyes. A graceful blend of south shore cranberries and Annapolis Valley apples create an appealing aroma and a charming, off-dry flavour. Invite Scarlett to your picnic or BBQ to enjoy alone or added to a cocktail, with grilled chicken and ribs, spicy Asian cuisine and light desserts.
Cordelia Blackberry Port
Made with our own beautiful estate-grown berries, ourBlackberry Port has been fortified to 18% alcohol and aged in new American oak to enhance its lovely aromas and lush flavours. Cordelia’s sweet, satisfying finish is a favourite choice for rich foods such as pate, duck, blue cheese, chocolate fondue and cheese cake.
Juliet Cherry Dessert Wine
The intoxicating aroma of Nova Scotia’s Montmorency cherries is captured in our velvety smooth Cherry Dessert Wine. This dramatic wine is a perfect choice for warming up an evening. Full bodied and well balanced, Juliet promises to be a romantic pairing with sharp cheese and sweet desserts such as gelato, pastries, and chocolate mousse.
Guinevere Iced Apple Wine
Complex layers of Fuji, Cortland and Spartan apples layered with cinnamon and tropical fruit create a distinctly smooth Apple Ice Wine. This refreshing wine’s crisp acidity is balanced with a complex sweetness. Guinevere is especially lovely when paired with chocolate, baked caramel desserts, apple pie and cheddar cheeses.
