Here’s another example of how the Jost winery is supporting vineyard development across Nova Scotia, vinifying a number of vineyard specific bottlings to showcase the range of terroirs in Nova Scotian vineyards. The source for the Marechal Foch grapes used in this wine is Kingsley Brown’s vineyard which overlooks St. George’s Bay near Antigonish. Jost’s Côte St. George Foch is a more grapey fruit-forward style than their other Marechal Foch bottlings. The Reserve Foch, for example, is considerably more extracted with a concentrated dark fruit profile. The Côte de Bras d’Or bottling from John Pratt’s Marble Mountain vineyard on Cape Breton is more earthy and typically displays cherry tobacco characteristics. In the Côte St George wine we have an altogether different expression of the variety, offering bright red berry fruit with cinnamon notes and a slightly stemmy herbaceousness. The palate is lively with pristine raspberry and cherry fruitiness highlighted against a soft centered buttery backdrop, the result of the malolactic fermentation that this wine no doubt went through to tame its more zingy side. With very soft tannins this wine is designed for early drinking, and it is meeting that objective splendidly.
