 WINES OF THE WEEK

  • Château des Charmes Chardonnay Barrel Fermented 2008
  • Durbanville Hills Shiraz 2008
  • Henry of Pelham Sibling Rivalry Pink 2010
 

Château des Charmes Chardonnay Barrel Fermented 2008 (Ontario)
$13.95 (LCBO #81653)
Straw-coloured with a bouquet of almonds and apples with a mineral note; spicy apple flavour, richly extracted; good length and great value. (88)
Food match: roast chicken; runny brie

Durbanville Hills Shiraz 2008 (South Africa)
($11.95, LCBO #22269)
If you like the fruit-forward Australian Shiraz-style wines, you'll find a good bargain from South Africa. It's a deeply coloured wine with a smoky, savoury nose. The initial flavour of sweet blackberries mellows to an earthy, herbal dryness. A lot of flavour and complexity for the price. (87)
Food match: BBQ-ed ribs; spicy pasta dishes

Henry of Pelham Sibling Rivalry Pink 2010 (Ontario)
($13.95, LCBO #171033)
The three Speck Brothers look like a rock group on the label but they're really very clean cut young guys. A testimony to their competitiveness is the rock, paper, scissors symbol on the back label. Their Sibling Rivalry Pink 2010 is a rosé blend of Cabernet, Gamay and Syrah. It offers flavours of cranberry and raspberry with a hint of sweetness and a fresh orange finish. (87)
Food match: chicken salad; ham
