A Niagara wine victory

Kudos go out to a Niagara region winery for grabbing top honours in a competition sponsored by a wine magazine in Quebec.

Le Clos Jordanne’s Claystone Terrace 2005 beat out 13 other vintages mostly from California and France in the contest run by Cellier magazine. The victory came as a surprise, but not for the reason you might think.

The publication’s editor in chief had originally intended to pit Califorina and French wines against each other, but several vintages from Niagara, Australia and New Zealand were added without knowledge of the judges.

A great feather in the cap of Niagara’s wine country – popular here at home but less well-known globally despite the obvious quality of its vintages.
