$15.95 (Vintages #337022)
Manzanilla from Sanlucar de Barrameda on the southwest Spanish coast is the driest style of sherry and it makes a wonderful aperitif to stimulate your appetite.

$17.95 (Vintages #274043)
Bordeaux has virtually abandoned the Carmenère grape but it flourishes in Chile where they produce it as a single variety or blend it with Cabernet Sauvignon. This wine has about 10% Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend. Dense purple in colour with a cedary, blackcurrant nose, it's full-bodied, dry with a fruity blackcurrant flavour, good length with a note of cinnamon on the finish. ****½ (89)
Food match: grilled steak; lamb
