680 NEWS wine reviews – June 9–11, 2006 

Ruffino Lumina Pinot Grigio 2005
The French call it Pinot Gris, the Italians call it Pinot Grigio and if there was a World Cup of Wine, this season the Italians would win palates down. Pinot Grigio is the new Pouilly-Fuissé. It's everywhere. The LCBO has just listed Ruffino Lumina Pinot Grigio 2005, which is good, because this is a wine you should drink when it's young and fresh. Ruffino's Lumina has a minerally, peach pit nose with a dry, soft mouth feel and flavours of citrus and pear skin. An ideal aperitif wine or to serve with fish dishes or runny cheeses. The cost: $12.95. That's Ruffino Lumina Pinot Grigio 2005 from Venezia Guilia in northern Italy. For Post City magazines, I'm Tony Aspler.

Gallo Sierra Valley Chardonnay 2004
When you have the kind of economies of scale as Gallo Family Vineyards has you can pass them on to the consumer in terms of good value wines. Gallo produces over 12 million cases of wine a year at all prices points. Their Sierra Valley label of varietal wines offers really good value for the money. The 2004 Sierra Valley Chardonnay is dry with a pear nose and a spicy, pear and lemon flavour. It costs $9.95 a bottle. It's the kind of wine that works well with fish or chicken. That's Ernest & Julio Gallo Sierra Valley Chardonnay 2004 from California's Central Valley. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler.
