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. Luckett vineyards produces a selection of wines and styles to suit all tastes.
Pronounced wildflower notes, with a touch of reductive character; opens up to fresh citric fruit notes, with subtle honey and ginger aromatics. Naturally bright acidity, fresh but balanced with a slightly off dry mouthfeel; finishes with key lime and MacIntosh apple characteristics.
Sourced from two vineyards, Warner Vineyards near Centreville, and Johnston Vineyards near Falmouth, NS. A significant portion of grapes were cold-soaked on their own skins for 72 hours. This greatly enhanced the wild floral notes of the grapes. It was gently pressed, partially whole cluster, at 1.4 bars; then fermented in the reductive style. Using stainless steel with limited exposure to oxygen, this accentuates the pure, fragrant characteristics of this unique grape. Fermented long and slow at 14˚C to retain aromatic qualities of the grapes. Small-lot production.
