Vintages Wine Picks January 23, 2010

White Wine

Mulderbosch Sauvignon Blanc 2009, W.O., Western Cape, South Africa: Vintages Wine Panel: Mulderbosch has consistently shown a very deft hand with the grape, and their 2009 is no exception. Look for all the hallmarks of both Sancerre and New Zealand in one package. My note: Terrific freshness on the opening salvo followed by stimulating notes of Granny Smith apples, lime essence and gooseberry. Bring it on! Pair with: grilled prawns, mildly spiced shrimp dishes. 933424 13% XD 750 mL  $18.95 Score: 91/100. January 23, 2010 Favourite White Wine. Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar  

Red Wine

Sileni Estates Cellar Selection Syrah 2007, Hawkes Bay, North Island, New Zealand: Let this wine have its way with you: ripples of fleshy dark plums roll over your mouth punctuated by some peppery and dark spice notes. Full-bodied and velvet smooth. 156521 13% D 750 mL  $15.95 Score: 89/100. January 23, 2010 Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar
