Trapiche Broquel Chardonnay 2010 (Mendoza, Argentina)
$13.95 (LCBO #270231)
Medium straw colour with a buttered popcorn nose; medium-bodied, spicy oak and pineapple flavours with lively acidity; deftly oaked with a mouth-freshening finish. **** (88)
Food match: roast chicken; pork chop

Errazuriz Sauvignon Blanc Don Max Reserva 2011 (Aconcagua Valley, Chile)
$15.95 (LCBO #273342)
Lots of flavour here, more in New Zealand style than Loire. Straw colour with a lime tint; a nose of passion fruit and mango; richly extracted with herbaceous and mineral notes adding complexity to the sweet almost creamy fruit. Finishes refreshingy dry. ****½ (89)
Food match: ratatouille; seafood salad

Closson Chase Vineyard Chardonnay 2010 (Prince Edward County)
$39.95 at the winery. To be released in July – order it before it runs out at 1-888-201-2300, info@clossonchase.com, www.clossonchase.com.
This is one of the best Chardonnays Deborah Paskus has made in years. Deep straw in colour, it offers a very Burgundian nose – undergrowth, spicy oak with apple nuances; spicy and pure flavours of apple and melon on the palate, beautifully balanced and seamless with great length. ***** (92)
Food match: grilled lobster; salmon steaks
