680News wine reviews – December 6–8, 2013 

Cloudy Bay Chardonnay 2010
Cloudy Bay in New Zealand's Marlborough region made its name with Sauvignon Blanc. But the winery also produces an exceptional Chardonnay. Currently at Vintages outlets and priced at $29.95, is their 2010 Chardonnay. Medium straw in colour with a hint of lime, it has a Burgundian nose – apple, a touch of barnyard and a spicy oak note; the wine is medium-bodied with elegant, apple and green peach flavours and well integrated toasty oak with lively acidity. Match it with grilled salmon or ripe Camembert. That's Cloudy Bay Chardonnay 2010 from New Zealand. For Post City magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680News and 680News.com. ($29.95, Vintages #359513)

Peljesac 2011
Croatia produces some budget friendly wines. Currently at Vintages is a red wine called Peljesac (PELUSHOTS). The 2011 vintage, made from an indigenous variety called Plavina, is garnet-coloured with an earthy, cherry nose. It's light on the palate with sweet cherry and plum flavours – rather like a blend of Beaujolais and Chianti. It costs $11.95 a bottle and is a style of wine that you can drink with roast chicken or tomato-based pasta dishes. That's Peljesac 2011 – spelled P-E-L-J-E-S-A-C – from Croatia. For Post City magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680News and 680News.com ($11.95, Vintages #983494)
