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: November 15, October 16, August 3 and June 18.

White Wine

Sumaridge Maritimus Sauvignon Blanc Chardonnay Semillon 2009, Upper Hemel-En-Aarde Valley, Walker Bay, South Africa: Nicely balanced with fresh green apples and an ocean briny marine-depth. Nice line of acidity is taken up with the green apple flavours. Terrific! 13.70% XD 750 mL  $15.00 Score: 88/100. May 13, 2010 Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar

Bon Cap Wine Cellar The Ruins Pinotage 2009, Robertson, South Africa: A supple, smoky, dark-fruited red with ripe black cherry, coffee and cigar box aromas. Medium- to full-bodied. 14.50% XD 750 mL  $15.00 Score: 87/100. May 13, 2010 Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar
