 WINES OF THE WEEK

More Wines of the Week  

  • Konrad & Conrad Marlborough Sauvignon 2001
  • Lailey Vineyard Zweigelt 2001
  • Stoney Ridge Bench Chardonnay 2000
 

Konrad & Conrad Marlborough Sauvignon 2001 (New Zealand)
$13.95
Pale straw colour; light passionfruit and guava nose which comes through on the palate with a strong, steady line of grapefruit acidity. Medium-bodied. Drink now. Food match: warm goat's cheese salad; grilled shrimp.

Lailey Vineyard Zweigelt 2001 (Niagara-on-the-Lake)
$12.00
The Zweigelt I've tried in Ontario (8 months in old American oak).
Available only at the winery (905-468-0503).
Purple colour; smoky, vanilla and blackberry with a floral top note; fruity blackberry-blueberry flavour, well extracted, medium-bodied with a tannic lift on the finish. Food match: BBQ hamburgers, pizza.
N.B. Watch out for the release of Derek Barnett's Lailey Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2001 at around $35. It's the best he's made, even better than the 1999 Cabernet Merlot he produced for Southbrook. It should appear in the Classics Catalogue.

Stoney Ridge Bench Chardonnay 2000 (Niagara)
$11.95
Barrel-fermented in French oak, which gives the wine a deep yellow straw colour and a ripe, tropical fruit nose; fat and full-bodied with a lively caramel and pineapple flavour. Finishes well. Food match: Pork loin, seafood in cream sauce.
