Vintages Wine Picks March 31, 2007

White Wine

Chardonnay 2006, Twenty Mile Bench, Canada: Vintages Wine Panel: We’re told that the previous vintage of this wine blew out the winery doors and it looks like the 2006 vintage is poised to do the same. It’s bursting with youthful aromas of sweet apple, cinnamon, melon, peaches and cream as well as perfumed floral notes. Dry, medium bodied, it’s fresh and youthful with the apple and melon flavors. Delicious and refreshing. My note: Lovely orange peel aromas with exotic floral notes. Pair with: shellfish, seafood, salads, tuna, fried chicken. 37879 D 750 mL  $15.95 Score: 89/100.

Red Wine

Shiraz/Viognier 2004, Western Australia, Australia: If you like Wolf Blass Yellow Label or Yellow Tail, you'll love this wine. It has a lovely lift in flavor from the bit of viognier (a white grape) added to it. Balanced and juicy. Pair with: Hearty meat dishes, hamburgers, steak, beef tenderloin with a blue cheese crust. 20180 750 mL  $20.95 Score: 91/100. March 31, 2007 Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar
