Spy Valley Gewurztraminer 2010
At this year's New Zealand Wine Fair I tasted a Gewurztraminer that was absolutely delicious. When I went back to my notes I found I had tasted it at the same event last year. But the extra time in bottle had really developed its bouquet. Spy Gewurztraminer 2010 from Marlborough exudes aromas of lychee, honeysuckle, and rose water. On the palate it offers peach and pink grapefruit flavours. It costs $17.95 at Vintages outlets. Drink it with Thai or Chinese dishes. That's Spy Valley Gewurztraminer 2010 from New Zealand. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680News and 680News.com. ($17.95, Vintages #32870)

Passadouro Vinho Tinto 2008
In Portugal's Douro Valley where they grow port, they also make table wines from the grapes they use for port. At Vintages, there is a very tasty example called Passadouro Vinho Tinto 2008. Dense purple-black in colour, it has a nose of blackcurrant, vanilla, and spice; it's medium-bodied with floral-spicy flavours of blackberry and dark chocolate and a firm finish. It costs $21.95 at Vintages outlets and it's a style of wine that matches beautifully with pepper steak or blue cheese. That's Passadouro Vinho Tinto 2008 from Portugal. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680 News and 680News.com. ($21.95, Vintages #267997)
