Wines of the Week for March 30th 2017

Kim Crawford Wild Grace Small Parcels Chardonnay 2015 (Hawke's Bay, New Zealand)
$24.95 (Vintages # 378604)
Wild Grace is not the winemaker but refers to  "the rugged beauty of the landscape surrounding the Hawke's Bay vineyards." It could well describe personality of this wild-fermented Chardonnay. Pale straw in colour, it has a smoky, toasty nose with spicy oaky notes; it's medium to full-bodied, richly extracted with spicy citrus and apple flavours melded with toasty oak. A beautifully balanced wine. ***** (91)
Food match: lobster with butter sauce; roast chicken.

Ken Forrester Old Vine Reserve Chenin Blanc 2015 (South Africa)
$17.95 (Vintages # 231282)
Medium straw in color with a nose of quince and honey and a gentle minerally note lifted with a floral tone; medium-bodied dry, with pear, quince and melon flavours.  ****1/2 (89)
Food match: roast pork; Chinese dishes.

Heartland Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 (South Australia)
$19.95 (Vintages # 58099)
A wine very much in claret style. Dense ruby-purple in colour with a cedary blackcurrant nose; medium-bodied, dry, blackcurrant flavour with lively acidity and a coffee bean note on the finish.  ****1/2 (89)
Food match: lamb chops; steak.
