Malivoire Moira Vineyard Chardonnay 1999 (Niagara)
$54 at the winery only (905-563-9253)
This wine, which I tasted again at a Chateau Cheval Blanc lunch at Oro Restaurant in Toronto, is one of the best Chardonnays I've tasted from Ontario. It's right up there with the "icon" Temkin-Paskus Chardonnay. Straw colour with a spicy, vanilla and barnyard nose; rich flavours of apple, pear and pineapple mingle with toasty oak; full-bodied and lingering. Bravo. Food matches: Lobster, pheasant.

Wynns Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon 1999 (Australia)
$16.55 (LCBO)
Dense purple-black colour; on the nose, sappy oak and blackcurrant; firmly structured and nicely balanced with ripe cassis and oak flavours; the tannic finish suggests a year or two in bottle are advised. Food matches: rare rack of lamb, duck breast.

Morande Pionero Chardonnay 2000 (Chile)
$8.95 (LCBO)
A bargain Chard from Chile’s Central Valley. Medium straw color; apple and peppermint on the nose; round and soft with vanilla, apple and earthy notes on the palate. The acid kicks in on the finish. Food matches: Chicken salad, Camembert.
