Vintages Wine Picks June 11, 2011

White Wine

Vineland Estates Winery Chenin Blanc 2008, V.Q.A., Niagara Escarpment, Ontario, Canada: Vintages Wine Panel: Enjoy this less chilled than most white wines so the aromatics really shine: think no more than an hour to an hour and a half in the fridge. My note: this is an extremely rich and unctuous white with layers of pleasurable fleshy peach, dry apricot and pear. Love it. Never knew that Niagara could do Chenin like this. Neat! Pair with: grilled chicken with a light honey glaze, paella. Drink: 2009-2015. 227033 11.70% D 750 mL  $17.00 Score: 92/100. June 11, 2011 Best Value White Wine.
