Fuzion Chenin-Chardonnay 2013

20140101-232802.jpgLCBO#: 119800
Price: $7.95
Made in: Mendoza, Argentina
By: Fuzion Wines
Varietal: Chenin Blanc and Chardonnay

Fuzion wines are always inexpensive, but always a sure bet. Pours a light golden colour with a fresh pear nose and some light green apples, sugars and alcohol. Pretty close to the same for the flavours. Notes of peach and honeydew as well. The Chardonnay is not too dry, but very well-blended with the Chenin Blanc. Gets a bit too sweet after a while, but still a good summer drinker. Just have it real cold.

Rating: 3.3/5

Tried this wine when it was the 2009 and it was not bad, but was lacking in the taste department. The scent has the typical leather, red grapes aromas. The mouthfeel has light tannins and the taste is still a tad too mild. It does seem a bit better than the 2009 version. So, recommended for the price and for those who like their cab a bit less punchy.

Fuzion Alta Torrontes Pinot Grigio

Price: $8.95
Made in: Argentina
By: Familia Zuccardi
Varietal: Pino Grigio

A bright pear nose with notes of peaches getting stronger as it breathes. The taste is a bit milder with some sweetness and a light dry finish. Nice on its own, but better with food. Pretty good overall for the price and nice to try a little Torrontes grapes.
