Values Wine Picks June 18, 2014

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

Villa Maria Private Bin Sauvignon Blanc 2013, Marlborough, New Zealand: An extremely versatile New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc when it comes to food pairing: from shellfish to salads to vegetarian dishes, and many others. This crisp, refreshing and approachable white wine offers notes of citrus and some herbaceous highlights on the palate, which is typical of cool-climate Sauvignon Blanc. Balanced acidity with a finish that makes you ask for a top-up in your glass. Drink: 2013-2016. 426601 13% XD 750 mL  $16.95 Score: 89/100. June 18, 2014 Best Value White Wine.

Robertson Winery Shiraz Mourvedre Viognier 2012, Breede River Valley, South Africa: Full-bodied South African red wine with a great supple texture. Aromas of dark fruit and toasty oak. Great price!
