Vintages Wine Picks February 6, 2010

White Wine

Berton Vineyards Viognier 2009, South Eastern Australia, Australia: Vintages Wine Panel: Berton Vineyards’ ‘Black & White’ tier features just two wines, The Black Shiraz and The White Viognier. Viognier is making a name for itself in Australia, and it’s easy to see why. This attractive version features the variety’s typical apricot, peach, tropical fruit and floral aromas. Dry, full-bodied and smooth with juicy stone and tropical fruit flavours. An excellent value. My note: Such a pretty wine: stunning aromas of white floral, light spices, lychee, rose petals and spring rain. Perfect for Asian dishes. Pair with: mildly spicy dishes, creamy pasta primavera. 93435 14% D 750 mL  $15.95 Score: 90/100. February 6, 2010 Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar  

Red Wine

Renato Ratti Ratti Marcenasco Barolo 2005, D.O.C.G., Piedmont, Italy: Beguiling with dark red fruit and smoke. Full-bodied but it’s smoothed out. Old leather and cigar box. Lovely. 713479 14.50% XD 750 mL  $49.95 Score: 92/100. February 6, 2010 Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar
