Over the years I’ve developed a list of my “go to” wines. These wines are available at most LCBO outlets and are of a consistently good quality across different vintages while maintaining a reasonable price point. I’m confident I will be buying a good wine that I can bring to a friends’ house for dinner or to simply stock my own wine cellar.
Here’s a small sample from my “go to” wine list.
Hob Nob Chardonnay – Pays D’Oc, France ($11.95 – LCBO 232710)
I’ve received a lot of positive comments when this wine is served. Apple and citrus flavours with a good balance of fruit, acidity and oak aging. A toasty oaked chardonnay that pairs well with maple glazed salmon or simple served on its own
Available at Terry Fox & Campeau or Carleton Place LCBO
Gnarly Head Old Vine Zinfandel – California, USA ($10.95 – LCBO 678698)
A dark rich Zinfandel with aromas of cedar, smoke, dark cherry and flavours of dark cherry and chocolate A great wine that pairs well with pizza or beef fajitas.
Available at the Carleton Place LCBO or 858 March Road LCBO in Kanata
