Vintages Wine Picks July 6, 2013

White Wine

Hidden Bench Winery Riesling 2011, V.Q.A., Beamsville Bench, Niagara Peninsula, Ontario, Canada: Mouth-puckering dry and acidic with lime and grapefruit notes. Now don't let that scare you: it just means that this wine needs to dance with food, like seafood or chicken. It's fantastic and beautifully flavoured yet not heavy. Try it. Drink: 2013-2017. 183491 11% XD 750 mL  $23.95 Score: 91/100. July 6, 2013 Top Rated White Wine. Splendid Salad Wine Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar  

Red Wine

Xavier Cuvée Anonyme 2009, A.C., Châteauneuf Du Pape, Rhône, France: A gorgeous and robust blend of 25% Grenache, 25% Mourvèdre, 25% Syrah grapes with the balance being 25% Counoise, Vaccarese and other grapes. Seductive nose of black cherry and blackberry liqueur, anise underbrush, cedar. Aromatic, complex, layered and deep with a very long finish. Worth every penny. Try with hearty meat dishes.
