Wines of the Week for January 14, 2016

Las Mulas Organic Sauvignon Blanc Reserve 2015 (Chile)
$12.95 (LCBO #272609)
This organically-grown Sauvignon Blanc from Chile is light straw in colour with a bouquet of kiwi and citrus fruits. It's medium-bodied and dry with a lovely mouth-feel and a lively spine of acidity that gives it good length in the mouth. ****½ (89)
Food match: goat's cheese, vegetarian dishes or grilled fish

Studert-Prüm Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Spätlese 2011 (Germany)
$24.95 (Vintages #912659)
This late-harvest wine is old-style German Riesling at its best. Very pale straw in colour, it offers a floral nose of lime, apple and honey. Off-dry with honey and citrus flavours, its 8% alcohol make it very light on the palate. A beautifully balanced wine. ***** (91)
Food match: aperitif wine; Thai dishes

Beronia, Rioja, Tempranillo Elaboracion Especial 2012 (Spain)
$13.95 until January 31st (then $15.95, LCBO #426981)
Deep ruby colour; vanilla oak predominating over jammy plum aromas, cedary note; medium to full-bodied, dry, mouth-filling plum and cherry flavours. Finishes dry with a tannic lift on the finish. **** (88.5)
Food match: tapas; chorizo sausage
