Jackson-Triggs Signature White is a lend of the best aromatic whites of the vintage displaying lively notes of citrus, floral and honey with a hint of spice. This wine is well balanced with a refreshing finish.
Although the 2019 harvest season in Ontario was delayed due to somewhat damp and cool conditions, overall it was a decent season. We experienced an unusually late start to sparkling harvest this year, with the first fruit harvested in late September from the Claystone vineyard. While ripening took longer than is typical, the quality was exceptional. The balance of the sparkling fruit was picked by late October and certainly showcased terroir driven sparkling’s. There was a strategy at play as to when to pick the Pinot Noir and Chardonnay at their peak before damper, late autumn conditions settled in. Having negotiated this, we expect some classic and elegant wines to follow. As anticipated, Bordeaux varieties hung longer to achieve optimum ripeness.
This signature blend of Chardonnay and Gewurztraminer makes for an aromatic white wine that has incredible balance and texture on the palate. The fruit was destemmed and immediately pressed and cold fermented at 16 degrees for 10 days. Each block was fermented separately then blended back to create perfect harmony of the Niagara Terroirs.
Lively notes of honey blossom, red apple skins, hint of lychee, cloves and cinnamon. The zesty acidity dances across the palate with a slightly oily texture, displaying lively notes of all spice lychee, tangerine, Niagara apples and baking spice with an extended mouthwatering finish.
Food Pairing Notes
Pairs well with goat’s cheese arugula and almond salad, creamy gnocchi, shrimp cocktail, apple danish, walldorf salad or grilled lamb chops.
