Top Picks from Vintages' August Releases 

Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Chardonnay 2001 (Napa Valley)
$41.35
This is one of the best California Chardonnays I have tasted in some time. Yellow straw in colour, it has a nose of caramel and butter. The wine fills the mouth with rich, mature, toasty butterscotch flavours and lingers long to a nutty finish. *****

Royal Tokaji Wine Company Tokaji Aszu 5 Puttonyos 1996 "Red Label" (Hungary)
$28.95 (500 mL)
Bronze colour; marmalade and toffee on the nose; the sweetness is countered on the palate with tea leaf and orange flavours with lively acidity and great length. Will improve with more bottle age.*****

Lindemans "Pyrus" Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot/Cabernet Franc 1999 (Coonawarra)
$47.95
Dense purple colour with a concentrated vanilla and blackcurrant nose; firm and full-bodied structure yet remarkably elegant and finely tuned; fruit driven but very stylish. *****

Ca' del Solo/Bonny Doon Big House Red 2001 (California)
$17.85
A bargain at the price. A blend of 13 varieties (!) in homage to Chateauneuf-du-Pape. Deep purple colour; concentrated blackberry, smoke and oak on the nose; the Syrah sings through with a blackberry and medicinal note; well balanced with a black cherry and blackberry fruitiness. ****½
