Speaking of Wine...
 
 
Dear Jamie,
 
 
The Olympics have come and gone. We hope you enjoyed the games as much as we did and are as proud of our athletes, city and country as we are. Although one of the world's biggest events is over, we're awfully glad we still have even more to look forward to.....the March and April Limited Editions (Pacific Quartet & Italian Brunello) as well as some exciting new products on the way this Spring and Summer!
 
Cooking With Your Limited Editions 
 
Limited Edition 20 YearsJust Fine Wine has a limited amount of the always-popular Limited Edition Recipe Cards still available. This year, rather than have individual cards for each varietal,  Winexpert has created a fantastic booklet comprised of the delicious recipes for all five of the Limited Editions:
 
  • Filet Mignon with Red Wine Sauce featuring South African Shiraz
  • Pork Tenderloin in White Wine Cream Sauce featuring California lake County Trio Blanca
  • Turkey Breast Rollatini with BBQ Sauce featuring Australian Petit Verdot
  • Stir Fry Vegetables win White Wine featuring Pacific Quartet
  • Portabella Mushroom Burgers featuring Italian Brunello
 
If you haven't picked up your recipe booklet already, stop by the shop and get yours before they're gone.
For more mouth-watering recipes, visit our Cooking With Wine section  
Pacific Quartet Now Available!  
 
Pacific QuartetIf you pre-ordered a Limited Edition Pacific Quartet, the kits are now available to start! Drop by the shop and get your batch under way. We can't wait to have this one ready for some evening sipping in the Late Spring/Early Summer.
 
Pacific Quartet showcases bright fruit, excellent structure and a long finish. Vidal from British Columbia gives spiciness and stone fruit. Chenin Blanc from California gives a wonderful melony-honeyed aroma with hints of apple. Gewürztraminer from Washington contributes lychee, rose petals and floral notes, and Muscat from Australia's Murray-Darling Valley gives wonderful grapey notes with dried fruit and hints of orange peel.
This wine has a range of fruit character and enough acidity to stand up to a wide range of foods, particularly spicy and savoury dishes, including Thai cuisine, grilled fish, herbed roast chicken or barbecued salmon.

BC's Top 10 of 2009
 
Last newsletter we unveiled Just Fine Wine's Top 10 most popular wines of 2009. We wondered how our list compared with the rest of the province. So we went about finding out. 
Here are Winexpert's BC Top 10 of 2009 (in descending order):
 
10  Selection Original Vieux Chateau du Roi
9    Vintners Reserve Gewurtztraminer
8    Selection International Australian Cabernet/Shiraz
7    Selection Original Piesporter
6    Selection International Australian Chardonnay
5    Selection International Chilean Merlot
4    Selection Original Gewurtztraminer
3    Selection Original Luna Rossa
2    Selection International Australian Shiraz
1    Selection International Italian Pinto Grigio
 
Four varietals ended up being represented on both Top 10 lists: Australian Cab/Shiraz; Australian Shiraz; Luna Rossa and Italian Pinot Grigio. 
Do you see something you might like to try but unsure if it's something you'll like? You can always ask us (Leslie is great at matching people with wine). You can also connect with fellow wine lovers on our facebook page and find out their thoughts on the wines they have made.
