Natalie's Score: 89/100

Jackson-Triggs Niagara Estate Grande Reserve 2018 Chardonnay is bright, fresh and creamy on the palate with ripe pear, golden apple, dried pineapple, apricot, caramel, vanilla and soft orange blossom florals on the palate. A well-made, solid Niagara Estate Chard, the grapes for this vintage were sourced from the historic Montague Vineyard in Niagara-on-the-Lake. The wine was aged on its lees for 12 months in French oak barrels.

Chardonnay food pairings: grilled chicken, barbecued pork, quiche, brunch dishes.

Reviews and Ratings

Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

An expressive full bodied Niagara Chardonnay that delivers expressive tropical and exotic fruits, sweet spices, and perfumed notes with a creamy texture. Enjoy with roasted chicken, autumn soups, and pork tenderloin with apple compote. Tasted August 2020, 90 points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca
Lynn van der Linde - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A beautiful expression of Chardonnay, from a region and winery that knows how to grow and bottle this classic Burgundian varietal.
Enticing aromas of pineapple, melon, honey and caramel swirl in the glass, transforming into a golden delicious apple flavour. A luscious mouthfeel, medium+ body, and a lingering crispness make this classic Chardonnay a wonderful pairing with chicken au jus or lemon-dill salmon.
Tasted May 2021.
