680News wine reviews – July 22–24, 2011 

Falernia Syrah Reserva 2007
In the Elqui Valley way north of Santiago is a winery named Falernia that makes great Syrah. Currently at Vintages is Falernia Syrah Reserva 2007. Priced at $15.95 a bottle, this wine can only be described as "Australia meets the Rhone Valley." It has a fragrant nose of blackberry, exotic spices, earth, smoke and vanilla oak. A really full-bodied wine that delives harmonious fruit flavours that linger on the palate. A wine for red meat dishes. That's Falernia Syrah Reserva 2007 from Chile. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680News and 680News.com. ($15.95, Vintages #208371)

Penfolds Koonunga Hill Chardonnay 2010
Penfolds in Australia makes a lot of different wines at different price points but the quality across the portfolio is remarkably good, even for their entry-level wines under the Koonunga Hill label. Koonunga Hill Chardonnay 2010 is straw coloured with a nose of sweet butter and pineapple. The touch of oak adds a spicy note on the palate. The wine has a good mouth feel and finished dry. It costs $15 a bottle. Try it with grilled fish or roast chicken. That's Penfolds Koonunga Hill Chardonnay 2010 from Australia. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680News and 680News.com. ($15.00, Vintages #321943)
