Vintages Wine Picks August 5, 2011

White Wine

Southbrook Vineyards Connect White Vidal 2010, Niagara Peninsula VQA, Ontario, Canada: I love it when I find a wine that's so low in alcohol yet so packed with flavour! It means you can enjoy it over an evening without falling asleep on the sofa at 7 pm. This wine is liquid refreshment: light floral notes, white peach and melon. It's slightly off-dry (a touch of sweetness) which makes it perfect for dishes with a little sweetness or spice, such as glazed ham or light to medium curries and Asian fare. The bonus is that this wine is organic. Pair with: seafood, salad, pork. Drink: 2010-2013. 249078 9.60% MD 750 mL  $14.95 Score: 87/100. August 5, 2011 Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar  

Red Wine

Errazuriz Vinedo Chadwick 2007, Maipo Valley, Chile: Spectacular: words fail. Gorgeous depths of black fruit, dried tobacco and herbs, violets and inexplicable happiness. Full-bodied with voluptuous layers of liquid velvet to caress and please the palate. This is a lifetime experience not to miss. Pair with: osso bucco, roasted lamb rack and slow braised beef with root vegetables. Drink: 2011-2020. 123456 14% D 750 mL  $165.00 Score: 98/100.
