White Wine

Open Riesling Gewurztraminer 2009, V.Q.A., Niagara Peninsula, Ontario, Canada: The pretty floral notes and zesty lime refreshment are terrific with a wide range of dishes, as well as making this an excellent aperitif. The wine also proves that wine and vegetables can make a terrific match. Lovely balance, packed with flavour but no heavy oak. This is an incredible wine for the money: stock up for your parties and informal gatherings. Pair with: roast chicken, turkey, veal cutlets. 134965 11.10% D 750 mL  $11.95 Score: 88/100.

Red Wine

Sledgehammer Zinfandel 2009, North Coast California, United States: Gorgeous dark dark chocolate and black plum aromas on the nose, followed by a rich, smooth, full-bodied texture on the tongue: yum! There's some dark berries and dried tobacco notes on the finish. Superb quality for this price point. Drink: 2010-2014. 230466 14.50% D 750 mL  $17.95 Score: 90/100.
