Why did I decide to try this wine? During our wine tour weekend back in the fall we visited Gaspereau Vineyard. We didn't try this wine during the tour but purchased a bottle to take home and sample later on.

Would I prefer one glass or indulge in the bottle? Bottle. Without question, its quite delicious and with an alcohol content of 11% a bottle is ok - right?! haha

What shoes would I wear drinking this wine? Classy ankle boots - they match the label on the wine perfectly.

How would I describe the wine? To me this wine is like eating fruit salad...but the good kind that is sweetened with honey and lots of berries and grapes in it rather than means and apples. The smell of this wine reminded me of lemon meringue pie (the kind where the meringue is browned and extra sweet smelling). The Mr. said this wine made him feel like he were walking through the fruit section of Pete's Frutique (a fabulous store that used to exist in our university city of Halifax). If you've been there you will know exactly what he means.
