Vintages Wine Picks June 23, 2012


White Wine

Astrolabe Wines Province Sauvignon Blanc 2011, Marlborough, South Island, New Zealand: A sophisticated sauvignon blanc for fussy white wine drinkers. Terrific refreshment with herbal notes but not too grassy. The lime-citrus lift is most evident. Drink: 2012-2015. 10421 13% XD 750 mL  $21.95 Score: 91/100. June 23, 2012 Top Rated White Wine.

Red Wine

Monte Zovo Sa' Solin Ripasso Valpolicella 2009, D.O.C., Veneto, Italy: Vintages Wine Panel: This superb Ripasso is a perennial favourite with Vintages customers. Fruit-forward, with complex notes of cherry, herbs, and cranberry masterfully integrated with spicy pepper and meat notes. Dry and medium-full bodied with a flavourful and lingering finish. The upfront style makes this a very pleasant sipping wine. My note: Savoury, juicy and rustic with black fruit and cedar smoke. Lots of acidity for food. Full-bodied and supple. Pair with: roast leg of lamb, gourmet pizza with the works. Drink: 2011-2014. 650713 13.50% XD 750 mL  $17.95 Score: 87/100.
