680 NEWS wine reviews – June 23–25, 2006 

Banrock Station White Shiraz 2005
If you like white Zinfandel, then you'll go for the Australian take on this fruity, easy-drinking wine – White Shiraz. Banrock Station has a White Shiraz 2005 that's pink with a bluish tint; it shows minty red berries on the nose; on the palate, it's off-dry, medium-bodied, with simple fruit flavours, but a refreshing summer wine when chilled. It's an ideal wine to serve with hot, spicy dishes like Thai, Mexican or light curries. It costs $10.95 a bottle. That's Banrock Station White Shiraz 2005 from Australia. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler. (LCBO #386433)

Cono Sur Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz
If you have a gang of guests coming over for a barbecue and you don't want to spend too much on the wine, what do you do? Well, I recommend a magnum of Cono Sur Torconal Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz 2005 from Chile. You get the equivalent of two 750 mL bottles for $13.95. The wine is dense purple in colour, with a nose of cedar, vanilla and blackcurrants; it's full-bodied and dry with a flavour of red and blackcurrants. You can't beat it for value. That's the 1500 mL bottle of Cono Sur Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz from Chile's Central Valley. Just the job for hamburgers, sausages and ribs. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler. (LCBO #613224)
