Fish n ChipsLobsterScallops
From greengrocer to grape grower, Pete Luckett’s hard work, eye for detail and enthusiasm has made him successful in all of his business ventures. It was only natural that Pete plant a vineyard and open a winery on his breathtaking Gaspereau Valley property. Today, Luckett vineyards is operated by Pete’s daughter Geena Luckett. Winemaker, Mike Mainguy, produces a selection of wines and styles to suit all tastes.
This is an unoaked and mineral driven style; light and fruity, a pure expression of the grape.
The 2020 Chardonnay is a great example of the stellar growing conditions of the vintage. Warm and sunny, with favorable weather all season, it was a wonderful vintage. Fruit was sourced entirely from Luckett’s Avonport Vineyard. After 4 years in the ground, this was the first harvest from these grapes. Gently pressed and fermented long and slow at very low temperatures. 100% stainless steel fermentation expresses minerality, freshness, and an apple and pear forward character. No malolactic fermentation. Just 430 cases produced.
