680News wine reviews – December 21–23, 2012 

Alvears Fino Montilla
The best wine to stimulate your appetite is a glass of dry sherry. Not far from the region where they produce sherry is Montilla-Moriles, where they make wines in the same style as sherry but they're cheaper. Alvears Fino Montilla is crisply dry with flavours of camomile and green nuts. Serve chilled it's the perfect aperitif to make you feel hungry. It costs $11.45 a bottle at the LCBO. This Fino Montilla also works well with tapas – like Serrano ham, shrimps and olives. That's Alvears Fino Montilla from Spain. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680News and 680News.com. ($11.45, LCBO #112771)

Strewn Gewurztraminer 2011
Gewurztraminer is one of those hard to pronounce grapes but it has a unique and unforgettable flavour. Ontario makes some very tasty Gewurztraminer in Alsace and German style. Strewn Gewurztraminer 2011 has that characteristic lychee and rose petal nose, flavours that intensify on the palate finishing dry. It costs $12.95 a bottle and is an ideal match for smoked salmon or spicy Thai or Chinese dishes. So if you're having an Asian dish over the holidays this would be just the ticket. Strewn Gewurztraminer 2011 from Ontario. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680News and 680News.com. ($12.95, LCBO #65359)
