  • Clare Valley Estate Chardonnay 2016
  • Chateau Haut-Monplaisir Malbec 2014
  • Ogier Ventoux Rosé 2016
 

Clare Valley Estate Chardonnay 2016 (Australia)
$15.95 (Vintages #711556) (88.5)
Medium straw in colour with a spicy, light floral, apple and lemon nose. It's medium-bodied, dry, beautifully balanced with a lovely mouth-feel; it's fresh and lively on the palate with just a hint of oak. **** (88.5)
Food match: barbecued scallops; chicken breast

Chateau Haut-Monplaisir Malbec 2014 (Cahors)
$17.95 (Vintages #673590) (88.5)
Dense purple in colour with a cedary nose of plums and violets. It's medium to full-bodied, dry and fruity, firmly structured with a sour cherry flavor and lively acidity. **** (88.5)
Food match: spicy pork ribs; gourmet hamburgers

Ogier Ventoux Rosé 2016 (Ventoux)
$14.15 (LCBO #134916)
A blend of Grenache, Syrah and Cinsault and it's what I would call an all-year-round rosé, not restricted to the summer months. Light pinkish-orange in colour, it has a nose of wild strawberries with mineral and floral notes to give it complexity. Medium-bodied and dry, it offers mouth-freshening flavours of strawberries and raspberries carried on lively acidity. **** (88)
Food match: cold salmon, although you might want to drink it while the barbecue coals are heating up
