Wine of the Week for November 5, 2007

Santa Carolina Chardonnay 2006 - $9.45
Style: W1

Here's a terrific bargain that would be good any night of the week. Rich caramel, tropical fruits, butter and a whiff of apple pie on the nose. Very good presence on the palate -- smooth and silky with citrus, apple and smoke flavours and a clean acidity. Amazingly dense and complex for this price range. Try with salmon/trout, pork roast or chicken burgers. (LCBO 259192)

Actually, the 2007 is in stores, and unfortunately, it is leaner in all categories. A better bargain may just be the 1500 mL magnum version, again 2007, at only $14.95 as a LTO until Dec 1..Better hurry!!!!!!!
