Matt’s review: Canadian sparkling wine icon, Benjamin Bridge, continues to capture the attention and admiration of wine aficionados, Sommeliers, and fine dining establishments around the world with their world-class premium sparkling wines. The 2014 Brut is a blanc de blancs, 100% Chardonnay, that showcases exactly why Benjamin Bridge has become Canada’s favourite sparkling wine house. Hand harvested Chardonnay that was fermented in primarily stainless steel with a small portion in neutral oak, after which it spent four years on its lees, contributing to its impressive flavour profile and zesty texture. The nose offers crisp apple, lime, lemon pastry, and sea breeze. Incredibly refreshing and beautifully 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 August 2019. 94 points – Matt Steeves – http://www.quercusvino.ca
