Wine of the Week for March 15, 2010

Errazuriz Vallee do Casablanca Chardonnay 2008 - $10.95
Style: W1
Lush butter, sweet oak, ripe mackintoshlead off, followed by hints of spice and pine bough. Silky smooth -- almost honey-like in texture -- with baked apple, butter and spiced pear flavours; good body and very good length. Somewhat sweetish, but smooth and cheery. Try with risotto, rich fish or bbq bird. (LCBO 318741)

A Canadian Moment...
Stone Church Chardonnay 2008 - $12.95
Style: W1
Canada: NOTL
Look for ubtle aromas of pear and quince with a light toastiness. Awesome on the palate, it smacks of even-handed French oak and rich apple and citrus flavours. Very good body and length. I would have guessed a much higher price for this one. (LCBO 145037)
