  • Lingenfelder Bird Label Riesling 2013
  • Château Saint-Antoine Réserve du Château 2010
  • Domaine de Grand Retour Plan de Dieu Côtes du Rhône Villages 2013
 

Three wines under $15 to be released at Vintages on Saturday, January 9th.

Lingenfelder Bird Label Riesling 2013 (Pfalz, Germany)
$14.95 (Vintages #568634)
The ever-reliable Rainer Lingenfelder has a way with Riesling. Straw-coloured with a spicy, honey, melon and citrus nose; off-dry, peach and honey flavours. Great mouth feel, great price. ***** (90)
Food match: pork and apple sauce; Thai dishes

Château Saint-Antoine Réserve du Château 2010 (Bordeaux)
$14.95 (Vintages #434464)
2010 was an excellent vintage in Bordeaux and even the lesser wines show well. Deep ruby in colour, it offers a cedary, blackcurrant nose backed by spicy oak. Medium-bodied and dry, the wine is well balanced and firm. It will also reward cellaring for a few years. ****½ (88+)
Food match: lamb dishes; hard cheeses

Domaine de Grand Retour Plan de Dieu Côtes du Rhône Villages 2013 (Rhône)
$14.95 (Vintages #224592)
Purple-black in colour with a spicy plum, herb-tinged nose and an engaging floral note. Full-bodied and dry, you can taste that floral note above the black fruit flavours. ****½ (89)
Food match: steak; spicy winter stews
