680News wine reviews – January 25–27, 2013 

Jackson-Triggs Proprietors' Grand Reserve Chardonnay 2011
Jackson-Triggs Proprietors' Grand Reserve Chardonnay 2011 is a mouthful in both senses of the word. This Niagara wine, currently at Vintages outlets, is straw-coloured with a complex nose of oak spice, forest floor, apple and vanilla. Full-bodied on the palate, it offers spicy, toasty pineapple and citrus flavours with a lively spine of acidity that gives the wine good length. It costs $17.95 and is a great match fo rsalmon, steak, or roast chicken. That's Jackson-Triggs Proprietors' Grand Reserve Chardonnay 2011 from Ontario. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680News and 680News.com. ($17.95, Vintages #593996)

Mission Hill Pinot Gris 2010
Undoubtedly, the most spectacular winery in Canada is Mission Hill in BC. If Dionysus were looking for a permanent home he'd probably choose this Okanagan winery. And the wines would satisfy him too. Mission Hill's winemaker John Symes has a way with Pinot Gris. His 2010 is light straw in colour with a minerally, peach pit nose. The wine is dry, medium-bodied with white peach, pear and citrus flavours that sustain well on lively acidity. It costs $19.95. Try it with grilled fish or a runny camembert. That's Mission Hill Pinot Gris 2010 from BC at Vintages outlets. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680News and 680News.com. ($19.95, Vintages #537076)
