Jost 4 Skins is more than just a cheeky name. Our award-winning wine is made with four of Nova Scotia’s choicest grape varieties—Castel, Marechal Foch, Leon Millot, and Lucie Kuhlmann.
Grown in our unique terroir which is created by the slope of the land, the warm waters of the Northumberland Strait (the warmest waters north of the Carolinas) and the lack of fog, the grapes are carefully selected and then fermented in their skins.
Full-bodied and with a hint of impulsiveness, award-winning 4 Skins is a deeply satisfying wine with a rich ruby hue and a long and pleasurable finish.
Used for color and structure, also brings a touch of underlying raisin/dried fruit character.
Brings some blackberry, dark cherry and plum characteristics.
Lighter fruit aromatics like sour cherry, raspberry which lift the palate.
Grounds the blend with dark fruit aromatics, chocolate and coffee notes. Adds weight.
