SHERRY

HIDALGO FARAON OLOROSO SHERRY

DO, Spain

TASTINGNOTE: Intense, with roasted almond,

Brazil nut and walnut notes lending this a

slightly burly aspect, while gunpowder tea, bitter

orange and almond accents add a taut feel

through the finish. This is a distinctive, edgy

version that Sherry geeks will dig. Drink

now. Score:

92

DESSERT WINE

DE BORTOLI NOBLE ONE BOTRYTIS

SEMILLON 2014

Riverina, New South Wales, Australia

TASTING NOTE: With so many wines in the

market, it is sometimes easy to forget about

the classics. This Noble One Botrytis Semillon

is as satisfying and delicious as ever. Honeyed

pear, scented vanilla and subtle spice

enlivened by gentle lemon tones. It has great

depth of flavour and an open and generous

middle. A flavoursome, balanced dessert wine

that, despite its very high sugar level, is not

cloying or over-sweet. Lovely now but will also

cellar well into the future. Drink date: now to

2034. Ranked #2 of 61 2014 Sémillon from

New South Wales. Score:

96

ICEWINE

CHÂTEAU DES CHARMES

CABERNET ICEWINE 2014

6

VQA Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario

TASTING NOTE: Fresh strawberry jam nose

with a light cedary-floral note (having lost the

herbal note I detectedwhen tasted last year):

well-balanced, sweet but not too sweet,

honeyed strawberry, flavour, good mouth-feel

with enough acidity to sustain well on the

palate. Simply the best red Icewine I’ve tasted

in Ontario. Recommended by Vintage

Assessments! A Best Buy. Score:

94.5
