White Wine

Kim Crawford East Coast Unoaked Chardonnay 2012, Marlborough, Hawke's Bay, East Coast, New Zealand: Fresh and crisp with no oak. Citrus character from Hawke's Bay combines with tropical fruit from Marlborough. Malolactic fermentation with 7 months on the lees to impart richness and creaminess: gives the impression of oak without the heaviness. Butterscotch notes but still ultra-fresh fruit. Pair with: seafood stir-fry, roast pork. Drink: 2013-2016. 991950 14% XD 750 mL  $18.95 Score: 91/100. January 18, 2014 Best Value White Wine.

Red Wine

J. Lohr South Ridge Syrah 2011, Paso Robles, California, United States: A plush, supple red with lovely aromas and flavours of juicy plums and a satin smooth texture. Jerry Lohr is one of California‚Äôs Central Coast most well-known winemakers, consistently producing admired wines. This syrah could well be your new best friend in a bottle. Enjoy it tonight with a juicy steak or lamb. This review was also published in the Vintages Catalogue. Pair with: barbecue chicken, lamb cutlets, bean-based dishes, pizza, grilled salmon. Drink: 2012-2015. 948240 13.50% D 750 mL  $19.95 Score: 91/100. January 18, 2014 Luscious Lamb Wine Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar
