 WINES OF THE WEEK

  • Hardy's Stamp of Australia Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon 2001
  • Château des Charmes "Silver Label" Chardonnay 2000
 

Thomson Family Woolpunda Red Block Shiraz 2000 (South Australia)
$9.95
The Murray River area produces a flood of inexpensive, fruit-driven wines at bargain prices. This Shiraz is one of the better ones in terms of quality. It's not complex, but the gushing jammy raspberry fruit flavoured with oak (chips?) is attractively sweet and the full-bodied mouth feel make it a great BBQ red.
Food match: ribs, spicy hamburgers

Hardy's Stamp of Australia Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon 2001 (Australia)
$10.10
Another bargain Aussie red that has the "barbie" written all over it. Light purple in colour with a bouquet of ripe berries; medium-bodied with a sweet blackberry flavour tempered by a medicinal note from the Shiraz, and all held together by its lively spine of acidity.
Food match: lamb chops, lamb shanks

Château des Charmes "Silver Label" Chardonnay 2000 (Ontario)
$9.95
This VQA Chardonnay has seen no oak but the touch of residual sugar makes it a crowd-pleaser for Chardonnay lovers on a tight budget. Straw-coloured with a sweetish peachy-melon nose; quite full on the palate, easy drinking if a little short on the finish.
Food match: chicken salad, runny camembert
