Domaine Sylvain Gaudron Vouvray 2011

    Southbank Estate Sauvignon Blanc Pink Marlborough 2012

    Marlborough, New Zealand

      My Review: It may not be summer, but we can still sip Rose. This delicate peacy-pink wine has vibrant passionfruit, gooseberry and white asparagus aromas, followed by intense tropical flavours of passionfruit and mango with lemon. Mouthwatering, crisp acidity and a long citrus finish. If you love NZ Sauv Blanc, then this one's for you! Currently on promo at LCBO,at $13.60, you won't find a better bargain. Score: 91/100


      Segura Viudas Brut Reserva Cava

      Torrevalit, Spain

        My Review: Craving the bubbles, but on a peanut butter budget? Here's your go-to reliable value Spanish Cava. Lovely honey and almonds on nose and palate, made from hand-harvested grapes. keep a bottle in the fridge, always, just because...you never know... Score: 91/100
