Moris Farms Morellino di Scansano 2012 (Tuscany)
$19.95 (Vintages #992560)
I'm a great fan of Morellino di Scansano, a Sangiovese from Maremma which is lighter in body than Chianti Classico. This wine is ruby-coloured with a spicy cherry nose, medium-bodied, juicy, dry and elegant. ****½ (89)
Food match: antipasti; pasta

Freixenet Elyssia Gran Cuvee Brut Cava (Penedes)
$19.95 (Vintages #392548 – to be released on Saturday, December 6th)
This is a charming sparkler at a great price. A nose of new leather and honey with a floral grace note. Creamy mouth-feel, medium-bodied, dry, elegant and well balanced. ***** (90)
Food match: aperitif; grilled trout

Pierre Sparr Réserve Gewurztraminer 2012 (Alsace)
$17.95 (Vintages #747600 – to be released Saturday, December 6th)
You won't find a better Gewurz at this price: pale straw colour with a spicy, lychee and rose petal nose; richly extracted fruit, lovely mouth-feel. A pleasure to drink. ***** (91)
Food match: onion tart; smoked salmon
