680News wine reviews – February 27–March 1, 2015 

Redstone Chardonnay 2011
Moray Tawse, the owner of Tawse winery in Vineland, made the cover of Britain's prestigious Decanter Magazine with his Tawse Estate Chardonnay 2011. Moray purchased the old Thomas & Vaughan winery in Beamsville in 2009 and renamed it Redstone. The 2011 Chardonnay from the Redstone property has just been released at Vintages at $18.95. Light straw in colour, it has a spicy pear bouquet with vanilla oak. Medium-bodied, dry and elegant, it's beautifully balanced with great length. Perfect for chicken or fish dishes. That's Redstone Chardonnay 2011 from Ontario at Vintages. For Post City Magazines I'm Tony Aspler, 680News and 680News.com. ($18.95, Vintages #398966)

Santa Alicia Reserva Carmenère 2013
Carmenère is Chile's flagship grape. A good example at a wallet-friendly price is Santa Alicia Reserva Carmenère 2013 from the Maipo Valley. Deep ruby in colour, it offers a palate of smoky, minerally, blackberry and currant flavours. It's dry, medium-bodied, nicely balanced with a coffee bean note on its savoury finish. It costs $12.95 at the LCBO. Match it with beef stew or spicy Italian sausages. That's Santa Alicia Reserva Carmenère 2013 from Chile. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680News and 680News.com.  ($12.95, LCBO #309302)
