  • Quails' Gate Chardonnay 2010
 

Benjamin Bridge Vineyards Nova 7 2011 (Nova Scotia)
$25.95 (Vintages #256289)
A Canadian Moscato d'Asti that's a pure delight. Very pale in colour with a nose of orange blossom and honeysuckle. The initial attack is off-dry with honey and orange flavours but it finishes with zesty acidity. So light it fairly dances on the palate with the faintest of petillance. (91)
Food match: aperitif wine; angel food cake.

La Casona de Castaño Old Vines Monastrell 2011 (Yecla, Spain)
$8.90 (LCBO #143743)
Monastrell is what the Spaniards call Mourvedre. Deep purple in colour with a spicy, black cherry and pipe tobacco nose; full-bodied, richly extracted, perfumed blackberry flavour, mouth-filling with a firm tannic finish. Great value at $8.90. (88)
Food match: burgers; ribs

Quails' Gate Chardonnay 2010 (British Columbia)
$21.95 (Vintages #377770)
This is a full-throttle Chardonnay from the Okanagan. Straw coloured with a smoky, toasty nose of citrus with barnyard notes; full-bodied, dry and elegant with a rich apple and green pineapple flavours supported by oak. (90)
Food match: lobster with butter sauce; roast chicken
