MMI’s Top 100 Wines – July 2012

Don Miguel Vineyard Chardonnay AED 180

A pure, almost crystalline minerality, hint of honeysuckle and ripe stone fruit aromas give notice of a Chardonnay of very high calibre breeding. The palate delivers attractive dairy notes, subtle toasty vanilla tones and nectarine fruit all supported by a persistent, well balanced acidity.

Drink: 3-5 year      Food: Twice cooked duck

Fleur Du Cap Sauvignon Blanc AED 39

One of the best South African Sauvignon Blancs that we have tested. This one delivers a fresh citrus and tropical kick with great food friendly acidity and a finish that lingers and lingers. It’s an ideal wine for summer drinking which means in dubai, it’s the perfect wine anytyme in the year.

Drink: Now     Food: Steamed seabass with ginger and soy
