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

Fifth Leg Shiraz Merlot Cabernet Sauvignon 2008, Western Australia, Australia: A savoury, meaty, juicy red that's bursting with black plums and berries. There's a little mint on the nose which gives the wine a pleasant lift. Darkly concentrated, this is a terrific party wine. Start a party just by opening it. Pair with: lamb, roast beef, hambrugers. Drink: 2011-2014. 212605 14.50% XD 750 mL  $15.95 Score: 88/100. June 6, 2011 Heavenly Hamburger Wine Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar
