Matt’s review: A fantastic traditional method sparkling wine from the Niagara Peninsula! Jackson-Triggs’ Entourage Grand Reserve 2012 Sparkling Brut is a fine example of the high-quality and value-priced vintage sparkling wines that Canada is producing and excelling at with more and more international acclaim each year. A recent Double Gold and Best of Class winner at the San Fransisco International Wine Competition, you’d be hard pressed to find a better vintage traditional method sparkling wine at the sub $25 point. Straw-gold colour, the nose shows sweet asian pear, green apple, biscuit, and almond. Crisp and refreshing, the fine mousse coats and cleanses the palate leaving a fresh apple and mineral finish that persists until the next sip. Terrific with rich dishes, seafood, oysters on the half shell, and celebrating those special moments. Enjoy 2016-2022. Tasted December 2016. 91 points. Matt Steeves – http://www.mattswinepicks.com
