Tony Aspler’s Weekly Wine Pick: Trapiche Extra Brut Sparkling Wine 2011
By Tony Aspler
Extra brut this sparkler is not; there's some sweetness in the mid-palate that is reminiscent of a Prosecco. Produced from Chardonnay, Semillon and Malbec grapes, this is a well-priced bubbly with sweet pear and citrus flavours.
Food match: aperitif wine; ham salad
$11.95. LCBO #262261
