 WINES OF THE WEEK

More Wines of the Week  

  • Peller Estates Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2000
  • Zind-Humbrecht Gewurztraminer 2000
  • Kittling Ridge Oh Canada Maple Cream
 

Peller Estates Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2000 (Niagara Peninsula, Ontario)
$19.95
Peller has been doing a good job with their high-end reds, especially in the flagship Signature series, but this Private Reserve Cab is good value for the money. Aged nearly a year in French and American oak, the wine is deeply coloured with a bouquet of cedar, cassis and earthy notes; medium-bodied with generous fruit and supporting tannins. Drinking well now but will hold for 2–3 years.
Food match: rack of lamb, old Cheddar.

Zind-Humbrecht Gewurztraminer 2000 (Alsace)
(Vintages December release – $39.95)
The quintessential Gewurz! Succulent, exotic, fleshy and fabulous. The colour of old gold, concentrated perfume of lychee and rose petals; intense, sweet, mouth-filling fruit. It's like drinking perfume and lasts as long on the palate.
Food match: by itself or with Munster cheese.

Kittling Ridge Oh Canada Maple Cream (Ontario)
$24.95
A Canadian version of Bailey's using maple syrup, locally made whisky and cream. Well balanced and not overly sweet with a definite tang of maple syrup. Chill before serving.
Food match: over ice cream, brunch pancakes.
