Wine Of The Week – Southbrook Connect White 2010

October 5, 2011 9:50 am - Posted by Jody in Drink

Each week I like to choose a new wine to introduce to our fans. These wines vary by region, by varietal and even by price. I don’t think cost and value are necessarily related. So I like to focus on wines I have experienced on my travels and I think our fans will enjoy trying. salut!

89 Points, Gord Stimmell

I love it when I find a wine that’s so low in alcohol yet so packed with flavour! It means you can enjoy it over an evening without falling asleep on the sofa at 7pm. This wine is liquid refreshment: light floral notes, white peach and melon. It’s slightly off-dry (a touch of sweetness) which makes it perfect for dishes with a little sweetness or spice, such as glazed ham or light to medium curries and Asian fare. The bonus is that this wine is organic. Food matches: seafood, salad, pork.

Burgundy, France

TASTING NOTE:

The nose offers aromas of vanilla, apples and white peach. Bone dry, medium bodied and deliciously consistent with the nose. Beautifully balanced with bright acidity and a lovely finish. Enjoy with grilled fish or chicken in a cream sauce. (Add a splash of the wine to the cream sauce to give it a little extra zing.)
