Values Wine Picks June 22, 2012

Note: I publish batches of reviews that I call Good Values Wine Picks. These are from the regular section of the liquor store rather than the Vintages section, and tend to be lower priced and the most widely available of all wines. The last four reviews I did were: November 15, October 16, August 3 and June 18.

White Wine

Rosehall Run Rosehall Vineyard Chardonnay 2009, V.Q.A., Prince Edward County, Ontario, Canada: Lots of hazelnut and butterscotch on the nose from generous oak aging. Layers of green apple notes on the mid-palate. Full-bodied and tasty. Pair with: poached salmon (fatty fish) with buttery sauce, creamy seafood ravioli (cauliflower and crab), lobster pasta (pappardelle, linguine) with chive butter. Drink: 2011-2016. 834328002459 13.50% XD 750 mL  $35.00 Score: 89/100. June 22, 2012 Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar
