 WINES OF THE WEEK

More Wines of the Week  

  • Oyster Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2011
  • Caldora Sangiovese
  • Southbrook Organic White Connect Vidal 2010
 

Oyster Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2011 (New Zealand)
$18.95 (LCBO #316570)
This is one of the best vintages of this variety I've tasted from this Marlborough winery. The wine has that characteristic passion fruit and gooseberry nose with a fresh, clean palate that sustains on mouth-watering acidity for a long time. ****½ (89)
Food match: grilled fish; goat's cheese.

Caldora Sangiovese 2009 (Abruzzo, Italy)
$9.95 (LCBO #251017)
This wine is deep ruby in colour with a nose and flavour of cherries and mocha. What's so appealing, apart from the price, is its soft, ripe tannins. ***½ (86)
Food match: pizza; hamburgers

Southbrook Organic White Connect Vidal 2010 (Ontario)
$14.95 (LCBO #249078)
A very well made hybrid. Light straw in colour with a nose of green plums, nicely balanced fruit and acidity, medium-bodied with a touch of sweetness in mid-palate. **** (87)
Food match: pork ribs; chicken salad
