Dionysus Wines & Spirits present three new wines at the LCBO Vintages this weekend…

Look for these two reds from Australia and this vintage Port while supplies last…

The Black Chook Shiraz Viogner 2018
$18.95 | LCBO# 66738

Attractively spicy dark-berry and plum aromas, as well as a fragrant, spicy edge. The palate offers ripe dark-plum flavors with bold, juicy tannins. Drink now [till 2022]. Score – 91. (jamessuckling.com, July 1, 2020)

Penny’s Hill Estate Skeleton Hill 2017
$39.95 | LCBO# 16031

Powerful and opulent, while remaining harmonious and refined, this gorgeous shiraz shows blackberry, mixed berry compote, vanillin oak, dark chocolate and cake spice aromas on the nose, leading to a richly expressed palate that is dense and impressively weighted. The wine is super long and delicious with multi-layered mouthfeel. At its best: now to 2032. Score – 96. (Sam Kim, wineorbit.co.nz, July 2020)

Warre’s Quinta Cavadinha Vintage Port 2006
$54.95 | LCBO# 189605

The Quinta da Cavadinha has a lifted bouquet with more red cherry fruit. It is lighter and more airy that Symington’s other single quintas, with fine delineation with more expressive minerality compared to the Quinta do Bomfim 2006, for example. The palate is ripe and sweet on the entry and displays filigree tannins, a wonderful edginess and poise, plus a sense of completeness that is very attractive. This is not a powerhouse single quinta, but it has life-affirming tension and purity towards the long, sensual finish. Wonderful. Drink date: 2016-2040. Score – 93.
