Stock up on the Wine Awards Best of Show
The overall winner from Vancouver Magazine's International Wine Awards 2016.
A diverse collection of wines boosted in sweetness or alcohol. Fortifieds flatter savoury foods like strong cheeses or nuts, while sweet wines uplift desserts such as lemon tarts or chocolate truffles.
Bold and powerful, these reds are loaded with flavour, emphatic tannins, and rich body. Best in a big-bowled glass with robust food: stir-fried beef or steak tartare.
Expressive fruit and modest tannins are tame enough for fish yet flavourful enough for pepperoni pizza or meatloaf.

Juicy, light reds are thirst-quenching and bright. Try with grilled chorizo or salmon burgers.
Combining the structure of red and the refreshment of white, pink wines are for 360 pleasure. Try with Niçoise salad or steamed mussels.
As versatile as wine, sake can be deployed far beyond the Asian kitchen. Try nigori with prosciutto and melon, or refined junmai ginjo with smoked salmon and capers.
Creamy, full-flavoured wines need weighty food like pork roast, grilled salmon, or triple cream cheese.
Medium white wines offer a notable flavour and great adaptability for cheesy risotto, pizza Bianca, or rosso pasta sauce.
Lemony, crisp light whites pair well with shellfish, while fruity aromatics with a whisper of sweetness will temper spicy cuisine.
