Wyndham Estate Bin 555 Shiraz 2002 (Australia)
$15.45 (General release - #189415)
An Aussie Shiraz with a good price/quality ratio. Deep purple in colour; spicy blackberry nose with nuances of leather and herbs; mouth-filling sweet fruit with a firm finish and good balancing acidity. ***½
Food match: BBQ steak; blue cheese

Château des Charmes Chardonnay 2002 White Label
$10.95 (General release - #56754)
An Ontario Chardonnay with a touch of oak. Medium straw colour; a nose of oak, peachy-apple and leather; well extracted fruit, dry, full-bodied, lots of flavour; well structured, well balanced; toffee note on the finish. Great value. ***½
Food match: grilled chicken; veal escalope

Cave Spring Riesling Icewine 2003 (Ontario, 375 mL)
$59.95 (from the winery – 905-562-3581)
To my palate one of the best Riesling Icewines made in Canada. Old gold colour; intense, honeyed peach bouquet; full-bodied, concentrated, sweet, beautifully balanced fruit and acidity, clean with great length. *****
Food match: fruit pastries; foie gras
