Hardy's Nottage Hill Chardonnay 2003 (Australia)
$9.95 (General list)
This is a big, ripe Chardonnay at a great price. Straw colour; ripe peach and pineapple nose; cream, full-bodied mouth feel, spicy oak with good acidity and lots of fruit. ****
Food match: pork tenderloin; pineapple chicken

Etchart Cafayate Torrontes 2003 (Argentina)
$9.95 (General list)
A great summer sipper on the deck. Polished, medium straw colour; concentrated Muscat and Gewürztraminer-like nose (spicy, orange, cardamom notes); off-dry, spicy lychee flavour, a little short on the finish but seductive nonetheless. ***½
Food matches: Thai dishes, smoked meat

Stoney Ridge Cabernet Franc Reserve 2002 (Niagara Peninsula, Ontario)
$29.95 (available at the winery or through winerytohome.com, 1-866-254-6075, customerservice@winerytohome.com)
A much-medalled wine in local competitions. Dense purple-ruby colour; elegant, rich red berry and oak nose; well balanced, spicy, sweet red berry fruit, well structured with supple tannins; medium-bodied. ****
Food matches: rack of lamb; Beef Wellington
