 WINES OF THE WEEK

More Wines of the Week  

  • Southbrook Triomphe Sauvignon Blanc 2001
  • Southbrook Triomphe Cabernet Merlot 2001
  • Domaine Camp Galhan Sauvignon 2000
 

Southbrook Triomphe Sauvignon Blanc 2001 (Ontario)
$17.95 (availability: through winery 905-832-2548 or Lifford Wine Agency 416-440-4101)
An impressive debut vintage from Southbrook’s new winemaker, Colin Campbell. Pale straw colour; vanilla, peach and gooseberry notes on the nose (obvious oak from barrel fermentation) that carry through on the palate; medium-bodied, plump middle with a lively acidic finish.
Food match: monkfish, asparagus with hollandaise sauce

Southbrook Triomphe Cabernet Merlot 2001 (Ontario)
$27.95 (availability: see above)
Dense and deeply coloured purple robe; smoky, struck-flint, blackberry and blueberry bouquet with vanilla top notes; medium-bodied, lovely clean fruit, well balanced with a fine spine of acidity and soft tannic finish. A well-made wine that needs a year at least in bottle.
Food match: duck breast, pork loin

Domaine Camp Galhan Sauvignon 2000 (Vin de pays d’Oc)
$15.95 (availability: Portfolio Wines & Spirits 416-488-4922 or wineportfolio@bellnet.ca)
An impressive Sauvignon Blanc from the Languedoc. Not your usual grassy-gooseberry taste with racy, searing acidity, this deeply-coloured wine has an intense tropical fruit nose – ripe pineapple and green mango flavours with citrus acidity that prolongs the taste and cleans the palate.
Food match: pan-seared scallops, lobster
