Wines of the Week for August 25th, 2016

KWV Cathedral Cellar Blanc de Blanc Brut 2010 (South Africa)
$16.95 (Vintages #462762)
If you like sparkling wine in champagne style then don't miss this terrific bubbly from South Africa at a bargain price. Golden straw in colour, it offers a toasty, smoky nose of brioche and honey; it's dry, medium-bodied but rich and full on the palate with a toasty, nutty, apple and honey flavour with fresh lemony acidity. ***** (91)

Cave Spring Estate Bottled Chardonnay Musqué 2014 (Ontario)
$16.95 (Vintages #246579)
Musqué is an aromatic clone of Chardonnay that gives the wine a floral top note. This wine is light straw in colour with a nose of apples and apple blossom; dry and medium-bodied, it's surprisingly light on the palate for its 13.6% alcohol. ****½ (89)
Food match: grilled fish; chicken salad

Trapiche Finca Las Palmas Gran Reserva Malbec 2012 (Mendoza, Argentina)
$16.95 (Vintages #186668)
Dense purple-black in colour with a spicy, cedary, plum nose; full-bodied, dry, with a spicy plum and mocha-chocolate flavour. Firmly structured. **** (88.5)
Food match: Barbecued ribs; hamburgers
