A $9 wine? Yes, really

Banrock Station from Australia has two selections on the shelves that are excellent values while helping to save our planet.

Since 1995, each glass of the “Good Earth” portfolio wine consumed contributes to conservation project around the world to illustrate how wine production and conservation go together.

Two 2012 releases – chardonnay and shiraz-cabernet sauvignon blend – each carry a soft and comfortable $9 price tag.

Straw-colored in the glass, the chardonnay is dry and full-bodied with intense citrus, peach and pineapple aromas. The flavors on the palate are like enjoying a juicy bite of fruit salad with whispers of vanilla bean, sweet oak with a balanced acid and creamy finish.

This varietal pairs delightfully with roast chicken and rosemary, halibut with dill sauce or a plate of figs and mild shaved cheeses.

The luscious 2012 shiraz and cabernet sauvignon blend explodes softly with blueberry and ripe cherry aromas. The curtain opens with vibrant raspberry flavors with vanilla and oak dancing on the finish. The shiraz contributes powerful spicy flavors and the cab identifies with strong notes of black currants.

This red selection has plenty of backbone wrapped in a velvet glove. Pour this surprising wine with lamb, Mexican dishes and barbecued meats.
