 WINES OF THE WEEK

More Wines of the Week  

  • De Bortoli Family Selection Traminer Riesling 2009
  • Cooralook Pinot Gris 2008
  • Kangarilla Road Charlie's Blend Shiraz Cabernet 2008
 

Three wines from Australia this week:

De Bortoli Family Selection Traminer Riesling 2009 (New South Wales)
$12.95 (LCBO #207381)
Pale straw in colour with an aromatic, minerally nose of grapefruit, lychee and oriental spices; off-dry and surprisingly elegant for the price with honeyed grapefruit, peach and lavender flavours. **** (88)
Food match: Thai dishes; aperitif wine

Cooralook Pinot Gris 2008 (Mornington Crescent)
$14.95 (LCBO #212712)
A drier than normal spring in Southern Victoria meant good ripeness at harvest and resulting fullness of flavour. Straw-coloured with a nose of peach pits and minerals, this wine has a dry, peach and pear flavour. The mid palate is full with a lovely mouth feel and a clean, crisp finish **** (87)
Food match: roast chicken; camembert

Kangarilla Road Charlie's Blend Shiraz Cabernet 2008 (Southern Fleurieu, Currency Creek, McLaren Vale and Langhorne Creek)
$12.95 (LCBO #212720)
The jazzy red label mimics the Age of Aquarius locks of the winemaker's son, Charlie. The colour is deep purple-ruby with a high-toned bouquet of blackberries and smoke. Full in the mouth with flavours of black cherries and plums carried on lively acidity and ending with supple tannins to give the wine structure. **** (87)
Food match: BBQ ribs; hamburgers
