680 NEWS wine reviews – April 7–9, 2006 

Fat Bastard Shiraz (Pays d'Oc)
The Fat Bastard label has attracted a lot of attention but it's good to know that the wine in the bottle lives up to the chance you take by picking up a bottle. Well, the bottle just got heavier because Fat Bastard Shiraz from the Pays d'Oc region of France now comes in the magnum format. Don't expect Aussie style; this is leaner and more structured. It has a raspberry and pepper nose with some minerality; it's medium-bodied with a dry raspberry flavour; well balanced and firmly structured. It costs $28.90 for 1500 mL. That's Fat Bastard Shiraz from France. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler.
$28.90 for 1500 mL (LCBO #621144)

Lindemans Bin 65 Chardonnay 2005 (Australia)
If you're looking for consistency in a wine from vintage to vintage try Lindemans Bin 65 Chardonnay 2005. I call it a beer drinker's wine because it's blended to a certain taste profile and always tastes the same. This latest vintage, 2005, is straw coloured with a nose of buttered popcorn; full on the palate and slightly sweet with tropical fruit and citrus flavours. It costs $10.60 a bottle. You can pair it with chicken or salmon and drink it as an aperitif nicely chilled. That's Lindemans Bin 65 Chardonnay 2005 from Australia. For post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler.
$10.60 (LCBO #142117)
