Wines of the Week for September 8th, 2016

Anselmann Edesheimer Rosengarten Siegerrebe Spätlese 2012 (Pfalz)
$16.95 (Vintages #910554)
If you're a fan of off-dry, low-alcohol German wines, you're going to love this wine. Deep yellow in colour, it has a spicy, floral nose of lychee and tangerine. With only 8.5% alcohol it's still medium bodied with a honeyed lychee flavour that's soft on the palate and easy drinking. ****½ (89.5)
Food match: pork; lightly curried dishes

Château des Charmes St. David's Bench Vineyard Gamay Noir Droit 2012 (Niagara)
$17.95 (Vintages #346742)
Château des Charmes won two gold medals for its Gamay at the Ontario Wine Awards this year and one of them was recently listed at Vintages: St. David's Bench Vineyard Gamay Noir Droit 2012. Deep ruby in colour, the wine has a nose of plum and white pepper. It's medium-bodied, dry and elegant with lively cherry and plum flavours carried on fresh acidity. ****½ (89)
Food match: (chilled) salmon; (room temperature) white meats

Domaine Lafage Tessellae Old Vines 2014 (Midi)
$18.95 (Vintages #343517)
A blend of 50% Grenache, 40% Syrah and 10% Mourvèdre. Dense purple colour; cedary, blackcurrant with notes of wild herbs and almonds; medium to full-bodied, dry, with a silky mouth-feel , richly-extracted and well-balanced with resolved tannins. ****½ (89)
Food match: grilled red meats; mature hard cheeses
