Petite Rivière Vineyards grows elegant, complex wines in a sunny microclimate on the slops of Drumlin Hills on Nova Scotia's South Shore. The LaHave River Valley Wine Region is recognized as one of the earliest growing wine regions in North America.
This skin-contact white wine is a style of wine made from white grapes, fermented with the grape skins, giving the wine an orange colour. It was made from a blend of L'Acadie Blanc, New York Muscat, Cayuga & Frontenac Gris. With its wonderful amber hue, this wine has robust aromas of dried fruit, honey, linseed oil and sourdough. The palate is lively with honeyed pear, bruised apple and hazelnuts with a bright acidity and notable tannins. Pairs well with charcuterie and bold cheese. Serve lightly-chilled.

While I appreciate the fruity aromas and nutty flavour this wine was too acidic for my preferences. Paired well with a bold blue cheese to tone down the acidity!
