Values Wine Picks May 13, 2010

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: July 12, May 14, November 15 and October 16.

White Wine

Newton Johnson Chardonnay 2008, Walker Bay, Hermanus, South Africa: A savoury tension holds this wine together. There's lovely green apple notes on a wine that's been sun-kissed with a touch of toasty oak. A hazelnut-infused finish. Superb effort! Drink: 2010-2015. 13% XD 750 mL  $15.00 Score: 91/100.

Red Wine

Amani Vineyards Pinotage 2007, Stellenbosch, South Africa: This wine has a luxurious palate weight, loaded with peppered raspberries, black cherry, licorice and mocha spice. A smoky, velvet plum heart slowly emerges. Drink: 2010-2018. 14% XD 750 mL  $20.00 Score: 94/100. May 13, 2010 Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar
