This medium straw-coloured white delivers loads of pineapple, restrained saline, and lime zest leading to a round, yet lively texture. As you take your first sip, you will be engaged by the appealing flavours, which are followed by a mouthwatering and clean finish that ultimately enhances the tasting experience of this wine.

 Jost Vineyards Tidal Bay embodies the essence of classic Nova Scotian wines, embracing the cool climate and delicate grapes the terroir is best at developing. Most seafood from this area has a backbone of salinity or as I call it,  ‘a cool maritime freshness’, so using wines to pair with that encompass similar features can help complement the food you are serving and vice versa. Go ahead and explore pairing Jost Tidal Bay with many of your own favorite locally-inspired dishes. A great value at just under $20.

Some of the best things in life are ones that you don’t have to overthink and their beauty occurs in their simplicity and unaltered pleasure. For example, one of our local iconic treats, lobster, can be enjoyed in a variety of different ways. Using Chef Maggie Wilkinson’s approach to keeping it simple by allowing the lobster to be the star, makes it a perfect pair for Jost Tidal Bay with its similar composition. Luckily, both the wine and the recipe ingredients are easy to obtain, prepare and enjoy so test out this winning combination and see for yourself how ‘simply delicious’ this pairing is.
