Vintages Wine Picks October 17, 2013

White Wine

Vina Maipo Vitral Chardonnay 2011, Casablanca Valley, Chile: A full-bodied chardonnay with an acidic bite up front that then rounds out to fleshy, mouth-filling flavours of green apple and pear on the palate. Very tasty, but requires food like roast chicken. Drink: 2013-2015. 270009 13.50% XD 750 mL  $13.95 Score: 86/100. October 17, 2013 Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar  

Red Wine

Villa Maria Private Bin Merlot Cabernet Sauvignon 2011, Hawkes Bay, New Zealand: Minty cool wild blackberry on the nose from this cool-climate red wine. Smooth and almost full-bodied. Great mouth-watering juiciness with a pleasant, refreshing bite on the finish. Try with rich meat dishes or hamburgers. Drink: 2013-2015. 310300 12.50% XD 750 mL  $16.45 Score: 87/100.
