This product is currently sold out.
In the winemaker’s world Red is made of many colours. Here is Gina Haverstock’s, the winemaker at Gaspereau Vineyards, statement:
‘Just like an exquisite work of art where colours come together to evoke emotions and to remind us of experiences, so too can a bottle of
wine. But instead of using colors, we use aromas, texture, and appearance to bring out these same feelings. Gaspereau’s red blend is our
winemaker’s artistic gift to your palate, captured and contained in a bottle.'
Deep cherry and burgundy hue with a bright magenta rim
Gaspereau’s newest red blend combines Marechal Foch, Marquette, Triomphe D’Alsace and Lucie Kuhlmann to create a wine that is both fruit-forward and complex. Aging the individual wines in various ways – in both new and mature Hungarian and French oak barriques, and in stainless steel - builds complexity in the blend while respecting the delicate primary aromas derived from the grapes themselves.
Red plum and black cherry aromatics with underlying floral and licorice notes are interwoven with alluring vanilla, chocolate and spiced oak creating a complex and intriguing nose.
Black cherry and cranberry present itself on the palate and combine with a chocolate and spice note and a hint of licorice, creating a complex and textured mouthfeel. The finish is lingering and fresh with subtle oak and red fruit.
Black cherry and oak-influenced notes follow through from the nose and are combined with a freshness and an elegant structure that makes this wine food friendly. Ideal food pairings include slow-roasted beef and lamb, tomato-based pasta
dishes and classic Italian pizza.
