SALENTEIN RESERVE MALBEC 2015

Uco Valley, Mendoza

TASTING NOTE: ... also labelled Reserve Malbec and

as Barrel Selection in Europe Barrel. It is produced

with grapes grown at their El Oasis and La Pampa

vineyards in Valle de Uco that fermented destemmed

in stainless steel vats and matured in oak barrels for

12 months. This is a very aromatic, floral and showy

Malbec, very fruit-driven, where they search for fresh-

ness and use mostly neutral barrels trying to show

the character of the Valle de Uco. The palate is silky,

with a fine texture and sweet, round tannins, very

fresh, even with a minty nose. They produce over one

million bottles of this wine in multiple bottling lots from

the same blend. Drink Date: 2016-2018. Score:

90

From a well-loved producer, this Chardonnay will

CANOE RIDGE THE EXPEDITION

CABERNET SAUVIGNON 2015

TASTING NOTE: This is from a single vineyard in the

exciting Horse Heaven Hills area of Washington.

It’s complex and still very young, with nicely aligned

black fruit, cedar, tar and vanilla notes. Structured

tannins provide excellent framing. Enjoy this tonight

with rare steak or grilled lamb. (Vintages panel,

L.A. CETTO PETITE SIRAH 2015

Guadalupe Valley, Baja California

From the biggest winery in Mexico, founded in 1975,

this is a longstanding Vintages customer favourite,

beloved for its value and for the consistency and

depth of rich dark fruit, spice, leather and smoke that

it delivers. It’s always a telling example of howwell

Petite Sirah shines in Baja California. Enjoywith meaty

pizzas, a grilled steak or burgers.

ZOLO TORRONTÉS 2016

Mendoza

(Fincas Patagonicas)

TASTING NOTE: Argentina’s signature white grape,

Torrontés, is fast becoming a go-to for Vintages

customers looking for a unique, fresh, crisp, food-

friendly option for seafood. This example, from a

popular producer, has a core of impressive acidity

that keeps the juicy, fruity palate (think sweet lemon)

zipping along. (Vintages panel, Oct. 2016)
