Masi Campofiorin 1999 (Veneto, Italy)
The latest vintage of this popular blend of Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara
is dense ruby in colour with an intriguing bouquet of chestnuts, dried
fruits and earth. On the palate you discover a full-bodied, well-balanced
wine with sweet, mocha, plum and cherry flavours and soft tannins.
Food match: pasta with rich tomato-based sauce; Parmigiano cheese
Lindemans Reserve Shiraz 2001 (Australia)
Dense purple colour; a very expressive nose of blackberries and vanilla
with a medicinal note characteristic of this variety; richly extracted,
full-bodied toothsome fruit thatís firmly structured and lingers
on the palate with a lovely floral note. A bargain at the price.
Food match: game dishes, blue cheeses
Wynns Coonawarra Estate Chardonnay 2001 (Australia)
Straw colour with a lifted nose of ripe peaches and vanilla; full-bodied
with nicely balanced oak. The peachy quality on the nose follows through
on the palate with a note of fresh orange that adds the right amount of
acidity to carry the flavour. A full-bodied, well-made wine.
Food match: pork with coriander, crab cakes.
