Avondale Sky Tidal Bay (750ml)
The vineyards of Avondale Sky are located on gentle southern slopes on the Avon Peninsula. Avondale Sky officially opened its doors as a winery in October of 2011. Stuart Creaser and Lorraine Vassalo bought the former St. Matthews church for $1.67, the same price the congregation paid for the building in 1844. In May 2011, the Carpenter Gothic-style building was lifted off its foundation and transported down the coast atop a car ferry. Today the former church is the retail shop at Avondale Sky. Many of the other buildings on the site have been re-purposed as well. Winemaker, Ben Swetnam, a Nova Scotian who graduated from the Niagara College Winery and Viticulture program is the winemaker and he crafts wines for a broad range of palates.
Nova Scotia’s Appellation blend, is crafted from L’Acadie, Vidal, Geisenheim and touch of Petit Milo. This unique wine is characterized by a blend of citrus and hint of pineapple on the palate and a long, smooth, mineral finish.
