The Black Chook Woop Woop Wines Shiraz Viognier 2009, South Australia, Australia: Surprisingly excellent for the price, wow. This wine is a blend of 94% Shiraz and 6% Viognier from McLaren Vale and Langhorne Creek. Blackberry jam lusciousness with some mint. Layers and layers and layers of pleasure. Eyes closed kinda wine. Drink: 2011-2015. 66738 14.50% XD 750 mL  $17.95 Score: 90/100. September 3, 2011 Best Value Red Wine. Full Review
13th Street Winery White Palette 2010, V.Q.A., Niagara Peninsula, Ontario, Canada: Vintages Wine Panel: Each variety, including Gewurz, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay all seem to have their moment in the sun here. Aromas of peach, sweet herbs, peapods, spring flowers, grapefruit and exotic spice are on offer. Ever so slightly off-dry, fresh and fruity with good weight. Will also make a fantastic warm-weather sipper. My note: Extremely pretty! Floral with lychee and rose petal aromas. Good acidity and so versatile with food. Medium-bodied. Lovely! Drink: 2011-2015. 207340 12% D 750 mL  $14.95 Score: 88/100. August 6, 2011 Best Value White Wine. Full Review
