Recommended Wine Pairing
By Sommelier Danielle McLean
Looking to pair a wine with the Taste of India meal? Try an Orange wine!
Located in the South Shore of NS, Petite Rivière Vineyards is located in a sunny microclimate on the slops of Drumlin Hills just outside of Bridgewater close to the LaHave River. The LaHave River Valley Wine Region is recognized as one of the earliest wine growing regions in North America.
This skin-contact white wine is a style of wine made from white grapes, fermented with the grape skins which gives the wine an orange colour. The wine is made from a blend of three grapes; L’Acadie Blanc, New York Muscat, Cayuga and Frontenac Gris. To look at it in the glass it has a wonderful amber color with strong aromas of dried fruit, honey and sourdough.
On your tongue the flavor palate is lively with honeyed pear, bruised apple and hazelnuts along with a bright acidity and notable tannins which is very unexpected in a chilled non-red wine! This unique and interesting wine also pairs well with charcuterie and bold cheese. Serve at home with your take home family meal lightly-chilled and enjoy with friends or family!
Available for order from Petite Riviere directly
