Vintages Wine Picks March 6, 2010

White Wine

Henry of Pelham Estate Winery Off-Dry Reserve Riesling 2008, V.Q.A., Short Hills Bench, Niagara Peninsula, Ontario, Canada: Vintages Wine Panel: The grapes for this rich and vibrant Riesling are left on the vine well into October, allowing them to reach the desired ripeness. The result is an interplay of lush citrus and floral accents with a hint of sweetness balanced by a brilliant seam of acidity. An amazing value that will age well for 5-7 years. My note: Divine wine that will go do notes. This will go down a storm with Asian and spices. Balanced with fresh peach and pear notes. Lovely! Pair with: pork chops with caramelized apples, spicy Thai dishes. 557165 11.50% MD 750 mL  $15.95 Score: 89/100. March 6, 2010 Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar  

Red Wine

Rosemount Estate Show Gsm Reserve Grenache Shiraz Mourvèdre 2006, Mclaren Vale, South Australia, Australia: A beautiful big bruiser of a wine with blackberry liqueur and fleshy dark berries. Love it! Supple and long with persistent flavours that haunt long after the bottle (and your glass, sadly) is empty. This is a blend of 47% Grenache, 47% Shiraz, and 6% Mourvèdre and was aged in new and seasoned oak and tank. 583146 14.50% XD 750 mL  $34.95 Score: 90/100.
