We both decided to pick a wine related to the radio show today. My wine pick will pair fab-u-lously with my new found yummy burger, a lamb burger full of big flavour. My Kendall-Jackson Vintner’s Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2011 from Sonoma County is a superb partner! With lots of layers of blackberry and cassis, hints of spice and good concentration. Hello heaven!

I recently had a dinner party and one of my guests brought a surprise wine in a paper bag. We do this sometime and we call it our mystery wine game! Upon opening the bottle it had an immediate aroma that was very alluring and sensual with spicy notes on the nose, of green apple and white peach. On the palette,it exhibited good weight, beautiful bright acidity. This subtle old world chardonnay without heavy oak, reminded me of past wines I’ve tasted from the Montrachet family of wines. The average age of the vines is 20-30 years, the grapes are hand harvested and the wine is made with native yeast.  Loved it!

When one thinks of Mexico, often it’s about Tequila, in fact they also have a well established wine industry.Venture up to the north-western tip of Mexico to discover Baha California, with wines much like the ones sought after California’s wines with its costal region.I loved this wine wit my burger on the grill. Simply divine with its medley of fruit character – red currants to blueberries, silky, with velvety tannins, nice concentration and weight. Delish!

Ask The Wine Ladies

 

Dear Wine Ladies,

I was thinking of bringing an icewine to a dinner party being thrown to congratulate a friend of mine on her newly acquired role in a television series.  A lover of sweet wines icewine seemed like a good choice but then I learned there are also sparkling ice wines.  What are they like and would this be an appropriate wine to bring? Are they served chilled like a regular white wine and are they served in white wine glasses?
