 WINES OF THE WEEK

More Wines of the Week  

  • Catena Alamos Chardonnay 2011
  • Remo Farina Montecorna Valpolicella Classico Superiore 2009
  • Concha y Toro Trio Reserva Sauvignon Blanc 2011
 

Catena Alamos Chardonnay 2011 (Argentina)
$13.95 (Vintages #801571)
Now here's a Chardonnay from the Mendoza Valley that's great value for the price. Catena could well be called the Mondavi of Argentina. This wine has a toasty, nutty nose tinged with oak spice; it's full-bodied with mouth-filling, sweet tropical fruit flavours carried on lively acidity. ****½ (89)
Food match: roast chicken; grilled tuna

Remo Farina Montecorna Valpolicella Classico Superiore 2009 (Veneto)
$19.95 (Vintages #56267)
Valpolicella is one of those red wines you can chill or serve at room temperature. On these hot summer days my advice is to chill it (in fact, lightly chill all your reds if you're dining outside). Deeply coloured with a spicy red berry nose with an intriguing note of ginger. It's dry and elegant, unlike any Valpolicella I've tasted, beautifully balanced and good value. ****½ (89)
Food match: cold cuts; veal chop

Concha y Toro Trio Reserva Sauvignon Blanc 2011 (Chile)
$13.95 (Vintages #678656)
Chile's cooler valleys produce first rate Sauvignon Blanc. This example comes from the Casablanca, Limari and Rapel Valleys. Pale, almost water white, the wine offers a nose of elderberries and green leaves. It fairly dances on the palate with a tart gooseberry flavour. Very refreshing.
Food match: Caesar salad; goat cheese
