  • Pfeffingen Gewürztraminer Spätlese 2008
 

Château Roquetaillade La Grange Blanc 2008 (Bordeaux)
$14.95 (Vintages #240374)
White Bordeaux is a blend of mostly Sémillon with Muscadelle and Sauvignon Blanc. Pale straw in colour, this great value wine offers a nose of vanilla oak, peach and cut grass with a mineral note; medium-bodied with a lovely mouth-feel and flavours of peach and passion fruit. ***** (90)
Food match: grilled sole; camembert

Casa Lapostolle Merlot 2008 (Chile)
$16.95 (Vintages #405712)
Winemaker Andrea León adds 15% Carménère to this variety giving it a very dense purple colour. The oak is deftly handled projecting a bouquet of vanilla, blueberry and black fruits with an engaging floral note. There is a juicy, sweet core to this medium to full-bodied but it finishes firmly with ripe tannins. ****½ (89)
Food match: duck breast; lamb cutlets

Pfeffingen Gewürztraminer Spätlese 2008 (Pfalz, Germany)
$19.95 (Vintages #211417)
If you're a Gewurz fan, don't miss this one. Neon yellow in colour with a green tint, it has a nose of concentrated lychee and rose petal; full-bodied with an intense cardamom and orange flavour with a smoky note. Very exotic with great length. ***** (91)
Food match: aperitif; Thai dishes
