680 NEWS wine reviews – May 13–15, 201 

Miguel Torres Cordillera de los Andes Special Reserva Carmenère 2009
Carmenère is Chile's signature grape. Once thought to be Merlot, DNA analysis in the 1990s showed it was the rare Bordeaux variety, Carmenère. Currently at Vintages is Miguel Torres Cordillera de los Andes Special Reserva Carmenère 2009. Dense purple-black in colour with a spicy, cedary nose of plum and tobacco, the wine is full-bodied with richly extracted sweet blackcurrant fruit tinged with dark chocolate flavours. It costs $21.95 at Vintages and works well with flank steak or mushroom burgers. That's Miguel Torres Cordillera de los Andes Special Reserva Carmenère 2009 from Chile. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680 NEWS. ($21.95, Vintages #301432)

La Gitana Manzanilla Sherry
The perfect aperitif to stimulate your guests' appetites is a glass of chilled, dry sherry. Released at Vintages last month is La Gitana Manzanilla, the driest style of Sherry. Very pale in colour with a nose of camomile and green nuts, it's a crisply dry, elegant, light-bodied fortified wine with a mouth-freshening flavour of dried lemons, nuts and a slightly salty tang on the finish. It costs $18.95 a bottle and is perfect with tapas and smoked salmon. That's La Gitana Manzanilla Sherry from Spain at Vintages outlets. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680 NEWS. ($18.95 Vintages #745448)
