  • Penascal Tempranillo Rosé 2004
 

Woolpunda Yellow Block Chardonnay 2003 (Australia)
$8.95 (general list)
Any Chardonnay under $9 is worth looking at to see if it has varietal character. This one does. Medium straw colour; hay and tropical fruit on the nose; medium-fullbodied, sweetish, easy-drinking melon and citrus flavours with enough acidity to make it interesting. ***1/2
Food match: roast chicken; cold salmon

Robert Skalli Merlot 2002 (Pays d'Oc)
$13.45 (general release)
Ruby; vanilla, blueberry, cedar; medium-fullbodied, sweet blueberry and black cherry fruit, soft mouthfeel, mellow tannins. ***1/2
Food match: BBQ ribs; steak

Penascal Tempranillo Rosé 2004 (Spain)
Deep pink colour; earthy, candied raspberry with orange peel; medium-bodied, touch of sweetness, well-extracted fruit; hot finish. A hefty summer rosé. ***1/2
Food match: chicken salad; pork ribs
