Drostdy-hof Chardonnay 2006 (South Africa)
$9.65 (LCBO #343202)
Pale straw colour; buttery, nutty nose; medium bodied, sweetish melon flavour. Lots of character for the price; easy drinking. Great value: ***½
Food match: pasta with cream sauce; grilled chicken

Michele Chiarlo Gavi 2006 (Italy)
$19.95 (Vintages #30247)
Think of this as the Chardonnay of Piedmont, only lighter and more ethereal and made from the indigenous Cortese grape. Straw colour, minerally, citrus nose with a peach-pit flavour and a fresh, stony finish. A very versatile good wine. ****
Food match: shellfish; smoked salmon

Robertson Winery Shiraz 2005 (South Africa)
$12.15 (LCBO #610949)
Deep ruby colour; vanilla and raspberry nose; medium-bodied with a concentrated raspberry and pepper flavour and a vanilla oak note on the finish. Good value. ***½
Food match: BBQ red meat; Italian spicy sausage.
