Matt’s review:

A Canadian winemaking icon, Benjamin Bridge, continues to capture the attention and admiration of wine aficionados and fine dining establishments around the world with their world-class premium sparkling wines that are regarded as some of the best available, anywhere! The 2012 Brut is a blend of 63% Chardonnay, 25% Pinot Noir, and 12% Pinot Meunier, which were hand harvested and fermented in primarily stainless steel with a small portion in neutral oak, after which it spent four years on its lees which contributes to its impressive flavour profile and remarkable texture. The nose offers delicate golden apple, fresh baked bread, lemon biscuit, almond paste, and wet stone. Remarkably refreshing and well balanced, the fine micro bubbles coat the palate and make way for a long green apple, lime, and mineral finish which persists for minutes. This impressive sparkling wine pairs wonderfully with practically any dish you can imagine, and is equally great when enjoyed on its own. If you love fine sparking wine and haven’t tasted a Benjamin Bridge wine then what are you waiting for! Highly recommended! Tasted July 2018. 93 points – Matt Steeves – http://www.quercusvino.ca
