White Wine

Nederburg The Winemaster's Reserve Sauvignon Blanc 2008, Western Cape, South Africa: Vintages Wine Panel: Pale straw color; citrusy fruit with spicy, herbal notes; light pear and passion fruit flavors, well balanced with a crisp, clean finish. My note: Grassy goodness fills the glass and invites you to full refreshment with every sip. Herbal and mouth-watering with a terrific attack of acidity to get the juices flowing. Medium-bodied and very dry. Closed with a screwcap. Pair with: roast pork, grilled striped bass, asparagus, seafood, cream sauces, grilled vegeatbles, poultry, veal. 382713 13% D 750 mL  $10.95 Score: 87/100. May 7, 2009 Best Value White Wine.

Red Wine

Hardys Stamp Of Australia Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon 2008, South Estern Australia, Australia: A terrific, imminently gulpable quaffer in a convenient single serving size. You will need two (or three) though. Blackberries and plums and lots of toasty oak. Pair with: Irish stew, ostrich, venison stew, grilled steak or chicken. 14% D 250 mL  $5.95 Score: 86/100.
