“The workhorse of Nova Scotia wine,” according to Curated Food & Drink Magazine. Widely planted in Nova Scotia and parts of Quebec. Loose medium-sized clusters of golden-green grapes suited for a wide range of blended white wines or use as a single varietal. Fruity, crisp, mineral, with hints of apple and pear. Think Chardonnay.
Uncommonly holds eight different types of Vitis species in its lineage. Perhaps this lends to its intense versatility. Hardy to –20°. Recommended to us by local winemaker Brian Smith of Oyster River Winegrowers in Warren, ME. Z4/5. (well-rooted bare-root vines)
