Robert Parker's
Best Vintage Values

ALYSSA GABBAY

Special to The Jewish News

With single bottles of wine
going for prices from $30 to
$200, it can cost you a pretty
penny to partake of this
precious liquid. But you don't
have to buy a $166 bottle of
Mouton Rothschild 1982 to
enjoy a good wine. World-
renowned wine expert Robert
Parker picks the best wine
values of 1991, all of them
costing $15 or less.
Many of these wines
originate in areas not widely
known for their vintages,
such as Australia, Washing-
ton State and Chile. That's an
important factor in the low
price.
"These places don't get as
much attention for their
wines, so they keep their
prices down," says Mr. Parker,
who is author of Bordeaux,

Parker's Wine Buyer's Guide
and The Wines of Burgundy,

among other publications.
"But the quality can be just
as good as wines produced in
France or California," which
are often sold at highly in-
flated prices, he adds.
Here, then, are Mr. Parker's
picks for 1991 and his reasons
why:

California sparkling wine,
produced by the Kronheim
Co., possesses a "fresh, lively
flavor with an apple-like
fruitiness." It may not have
the flavors of a great French
champagne, but it serves
quite well for toasting your
daughter's engagement or
your husband's promotion —
or just for sipping as an
apertif.
2. Selbach-Oster 1989
Riesling Hochgewachs. A
round, creamy richness
characterizes this German
white wine, which possesses
an intense, perfumed nose.
Look for the scents and
flavors of green apples when
you drink it, as well as a
"lemon-lime-like acidity."
Works well as an apertif or
with delicately-flavored fishes
like sole or turbot.

3. Cousino-Macul 1990
Chardonnay. Over the past

l

four or five years South
America has emerged as a
terrific source of fine wines at
value prices. This white wine,
produced in Chile, has a
"lovely buttery, honeyed, ap-
ple and orange-scented bou-
quet," as well as "ripe, fleshy,
impeccably balanced flavors."
Perfect for sipping by the pool

on a summer day, or serve
with chicken or fish.

4. Fetzer 1989 Sundial
Chardonnay. One of the

most popular California
Chardonnays, this medium-
sized all purpose white wine
has a "charming, lemony,
apple-like bouquet," accom-
panied by crisp, fruity flavors.
Drink with chicken and fish
dishes, or with pizza. "This
Chardonnay may not be the
most complex wine," says Mr.
Parker, "but it delivers palate
and purse satisfaction."

Over the past four
or five years
South America
has emerged as a
terrific source of
fine wines at
value prices.

5. Lindemans 1990 Char-
donnay Bin 65. Australia is

still one of the leaders in pro-
viding values in quality
wines, as this lush white wine
demonstrates. A bit "bigger"
than the preceding wines, it
possesses an opulent ripeness,
as well as a freshness deriv-
ed from a good acidity. The
bouquet offers up aromas of
pineapples, oranges, and ripe
apples. It complements fuller
flavored fishes such as salmon
or bluefish.
6. Columbia Crest 1988
Merlot. Fifteen years ago, no
one thought of Washington
State as a source of great
wines. Times have changed.
With red wines like this one,
a "soft, very round, generous,
clean-textured" potion that
"bursts with the aromas of
chocolate, berries, mocha and
herbs," the region is now on
most wine lovers' maps. The
Merlot is full-bodied enough
to stand up to roast chicken or
herbed lamb.
7. Vidal-Fleury 1988
Cotes du Rhone. While the
Burgundy and Bordeaux
regions of France are produc-
ing wines that are too pricey
for most peoples' pockets, the
Rhone Valley, that beautiful,
sun-drenched area south of
Lyon, is offering affordable,
quality red wines like this
one. Full-bodied, laden with
"rich, roasted, peppery, black-
cherry flavors," it possesses a
lusciously soft texture and
good depth. Enjoy with
chicken in wine sauce, pot
