Sanctuary The Sanctuary 1998 Marlborough Chardonnay ($13.99)
This secondary label from New Zealand's excellent Grove Mill Winery is a pale greenish-gold in color, with pleasant aromas of cooking apples with green conifer and herbal notes. Full-bodied, dry and tart, mouth-filling flavors follow the nose; a faint peach-pit bitterness lingers in a long finish. U.S. importer: Appellation Imports, Annapolis Junction, Md. (May 18, 2000)

FOOD MATCH: Copper River salmon fillets steamed with garlic, ginger and lemon vodka.

Previous day's wine note

All my wine-tasting reports are consumer-oriented. In order to maintain objectivity and avoid conflicts of interest, I purchase all the wines I rate at my own expense in retail stores.
