Maple Brix (Small Batch Verjus)

Sour and fruity pure premium Minus 8 grape musts are blended with the best Québec maple syrup.

Several varieties of premium Minus 8 grapes are hand-picked while they are unripe, and at several more stages throughout the ripening process.  The grape juice blend that is made from these grapes is sour on the palate.

For balance to the sour notes, we use the sweetness of maple syrup.  The best tasting (in our opinion) pure maple syrup from Québec was made for us.  The maple syrup is blended with the Minus 8 grape juice to make Maple Brix Verjus.  It does not contain any vinegar (acetic acid).  Refrigerate Maple Brix after opening.

 

 

Tasting Notes

Appearance: Deep bright golden rose colour

Density: Moderate viscosity

Aromas: Slightly reserved and elegant on the nose, with enticing aromas of maple syrup, green mango, white peach, honey and notes of green coffee bean, mulberry and fresh herb (marjoram?).

Palate: Wow!  While the nose pulls you in with its reserved aromas, the palate positively explodes like a super sour candy.  Initially sweet, with flavours of maple syrup, burnt sugar and maple candy; then shows a palate bracing edge of tangy acidy and notes of zingy citrus, green fruit and tart fresh sorrel.

 

As is the case with all of our hand-crafted line of verjus, this is an absolute treat and the perfect palate refresher when served lightly chilled.  We leave up to the Chefs to figure out where to use this in the kitchen; however, we are told that it makes a great base for a sorbet, as an ingredient to finish sauces, or as a deglazing liquid.
