We are BIG fans of Rosemounts Show Reserve wines, though up to now we had tried only reds. Their cabs and shirazs are consistently good, often great, and always worth the money, IMHO.
The chard was as good, if not better, value for money that the afore-mentioned reds. Full-bodied, lots of style and class, oaky but not too much, buttery, a little carmel, yum, yum ,yum. We matched it with cold whole lobster (at CAD$5 a one pound lobster, who could resist!!!! ), and it was a marriage made in heaven. In fact, it's probably a little too muscular to be taken without food, but maybe that's just us. We still like the Columbia Crest Grand Estates chards better, but this is a solid second, though at CAD$ 26 a bottle, compared to CAD$17 for the CCGE chard, it falls a little farther behind.
