680 NEWS wine reviews – November 24–26, 2006 

Penfolds Thomas Hyland Shiraz 2004
Penfolds is Australia's largest wine conglomerate, but size really doesn't matter, because Penfolds makes very tasty wines across its whole portfolio. The 2004 vintage of Thomas Hyland Shiraz is a case in point. Dense ruby-purple in colour, it offers a rich, spicy blackberry nose supported by oak; it's full-bodied with sweet succulent fruit and lively acidity to keep it in balance. It costs $19.95 a bottle and makes an ideal dinner party wine. Try it with steak or five-year-old cheddar. That's Penfolds Thomas Hyland Shiraz 2004 from Australia. For Post City Magazines I'm Tony Aspler. (LCBO #611210, $19.95)

Little Penguin Chardonnay 2005
I'm not big on critter wines – with cutesy animals on the label – but they do make it easy for the consumer to remember the name. The Australian Little Penguin does a good job with its 2005 Chardonnay. It's a flavourful introductory Chardonnay with a butter nut nose and a sweet, spicy pineapple and buttered popcorn flavour. The price is right at $10.95 for the full-bodied, fruit-driven wine. Match it with roast chicken or spicy wings. That's Little Penguin Chardonnay 2005 from Australia. For post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler. (LCBO #598904, $10.95)
