Mud House Sauvignon Blanc 2009 (New Zealand)
$15.95 (LCBO #190454)
A well priced Sauvignon, it has that characteristic grassy, passionfruit nose and flavour, along with racy acidity that gives it a long finish. ***½ (87)
Food match: seafood; Caesar salad

J.P. Chenet Premier de Cuvee Merlot Cabernet 2008 (Pays d'Oc)
$11.95 (LCBO #621995)
An easy-drinking wine that doesn't have a lot of complexity but you get real concentration of blackcurrant and blueberry flavours with a spicy cinnamon note and a soft mouth feel. ***½ (86)
Food match: meat loaf; shepherd's pie

Torres Gran Vina Sol Chardonnay 2008 (Penedes)
$14.70 (Vintages #171660)
A blend of Chardonnay with 15% of an indigenous variety called Parellada which is used mainly in the sparkling wines of the region called Cava. The flavour of spicy pineapple is rounded out with the merest hint of vanilla oak, finishing fresh and dry on the palate.
Food match: roast turkey; salmon
