680 NEWS wine reviews – May 26–28, 2006 

Bright Pink Rosé
I have a feeling that blue boxes around town are going to be full of a wine called Bright Pink. In time for the hot weather, this rosé from Portugal that comes in a screw-top aluminum bottle that's recyclable has just arrived in the shops. The wine is a play on words, since Bright Pink is a rosé made by Australian brothers whose name happens to Bright. The aluminum bottle, I'm informed, chills down in 20 per cent less time than a glass bottle would. Anyway, the main thing is, what does it taste like? Well, it's deep pink with an orange tint in colour and it has a sweetish taste of raspberries. No great length here but it finishes dry. It costs $11.95 a bottle – or should I say can? For Post City magazines, I'm Tony Aspler. (LCBO #622159)

Chapoutier Belleruche 2004
The Cotes-du-Rhône region is located in the southern part of the Rhône Valley. There are many winemakers here who produce wines of high quality at friendly prices. I was impressed by a new listing at the LCBO – Chapoutier Côtes-du-Rhone Belleruche 2004. This is a sturdy, full-bodied red with flavours of blackberries, savoury herbs, licorice, pepper and dark chocolate. In other words, a complex wine for its price of $14.95. The blend is two-third Grenache and one-third Syrah grapes. Just the job for barbecued steaks or roast lamb. That's Chapoutier Belleruche Côtes-du-Rhone 2004. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler. (LCBO #665422)
