Review: Jost Maple Wine

Posted by Arctic Wolf on July 13, 2012

Jost Vineyards is situated along the picturesque Northumberland Strait, just off the Sunrise Trail in Nova Scotia, Canada. The waters of the Northumberland Strait bring the warmth of the South Atlantic to the Maritimes creating an ideal climate for growing grapes in a climate which features a long, warm, frost-free season.

Jost Vineyards Maple Wine is made from maple sap collected from the vast maple forests of Nova Scotia. The maple sap is carefully ‘cool’ fermented until the desired concentration of residual sugars is reached. The result is a unique dessert-wine.

I thought I would step a little ways out of my comfort zone today, and offer up a brief review of this Canadian Dessert wine.

Here is an excerpt from my review:

“… The initial nose from the glass reminds me more of ripe green apple than it does of maple. In fact, my first thought when I took a sniff was that the spirit is very reminiscent of BC Apple Cider. It was when I dropped an ice-cube into the glass and gave it a good swirl to chill the contents, that I began to finally receive those maple notes within the fermented apple cider smells …”
