INTRODUCING SELKIE FRIZZANTE FROM JOST

Selkie will tingle your tastebuds with lingering notes of golden kiwi, Lily of the Valley, and white peach. While Selkie’s playful effervescence and balanced sweetness resemble traditional frizzantes, its bright acidity and enticing depth make it inimitably Nova Scotian.

Named for the alluring creatures of maritime myth that transform from seals to human form, Selkie is a combination of eight Nova Scotia grapes, inspired by our ocean breezes and unique Atlantic terroir. Like its namesake, Selkie is transformative—making any meal, moment or occasion something magical.

To celebrate the launch of this innovative new white wine, we’re raising a glass to women who are making great things, like Selkie, happen right here.

WHAT IS FRIZZANTE?

An Italian style of wine, that offers lower alcohol, balanced acidity and a light effervescence that dances on the pallet. This is not a sparkling wine but a slightly sparkling wine that features a smaller and more delicate mousse. This style is celebrated throughout the world. In Spain, these wines are known as Vino de Aguja. The French term for them is Petillant, while the German term is Perlwein.
