Vintages Wine Picks June 6, 2011

White Wine

Open Sauvignon Blanc 2009, Niagara-On-The-Lake, Ontario, VQA, Canada: A lovely, subtly flavoured Sauvignon Blanc with white melon and lime notes. Not grassy and there's no aggressive acidity here. Very pleasant aperitif. Top me up! Pair with: grilled seafood, quiche. Drink: 2009-2013. 178681 11.90% D 750 mL  $11.95 Score: 87/100.

Red Wine

Equifera Estate Pinot Noir 2007, V.Q.A, Niagara-on-the-lake, Ontario, Canada: Lovely lifted cherry aromas surrounded by a field of violets and truffles. I love the sensual, silky texture of this wine with its flavour-packed medium body. I even put it through the torture test of leaving it open for a week, and it still tasted terrific. Yum! Pair with: hearty meat dishes, duck, salmon, roasted pork, grilled chicken. Drink: 2007-2015. 134163 12.70% D 750 mL  $16.95 Score: 88/100.
