Three wines to be released at Vintages on June 7th:

Don David Reserve Torrontès 2012 (Argentina)
$13.95 (Vintages #727677)
The highly perfumed Torrontès grape is a specialty of Argentina and is one of the most seductive of wines. Very pale in colour with a lime tint, the wine has an intense orange blossom and peach nose with dry orange peel, ginger and lavender flavours. ****½ (89)
Food match: aperitif; spicy Thai or curried dishes

Volcanes de Chile Pomerape Limited Edition Sauvignon Blanc 2011 (Chile)
$14.95 (Vintages #371138)
Pale straw in colour, it offers an intense nose of asparagus and nettles. The flavour is all gooseberries and cut grass riding on lively acidity to a green guava finish. ****½ (89)

Domaine Tournon Mathilda Shiraz 2011 (Australia)
$19.95 (Vintages #327395)
If your taste runs to bold, spicy reds, you'll really like this medium-bodied fruity wine from Australia's Victoria region made by Michel Chapoutier, a great producer from the Rhone Valley. Deep ruby in colour with a peppery, blackberry nose and a dry herbal flavour of smoked bacon and celery – yes, celery. ***** (90)
Food match: grilled steak; gourmet hamburgers
