Combing two of my favourite wine styles, sparkling and Sauvignon Blanc, this is quickly becoming one of my top recommended sparkling wine styles for those looking for a delicious sparkling wine to enjoy in the summer.
Jackson-Triggs Entourage Grand Reserve sparkling Sauvignon Blanc (2015 vintage) showcases the fresh and fruity characteristics of their Niagara Peninsula Sauvignon Blanc with the added flavour, aromatic, and textural complexity from it being a classic method sparkling wine. Light gold in colour, it shows baked lemon loaf, biscuit, yellow apple, and sweet pineapple. Delicious orchard and tropical fruit on the palate, the fine mousse keeps you refreshed with fresh apple and pineapple persisting on the long finish. Enjoy with summer garden salads, BBQ’d fish or chicken, oysters on the half shell, or one of my favourites, seared tuna on a bed of citrus-rich summer salad – a great complement to this sparkling wine. Enjoy 2018-2020. Tasted July 2018. 91+ points. Matt Steeves – http://www.quercusvino.ca
