680 NEWS wine reviews – July 7–9, 2006 

Prosecco di Valdobbiadene
Sparkling wine and summer were made for each other, but champagne, the king of fizz, is not an everyday choice unless you've won the lottery. A solid substitute for champagne is a sparkler from Italy's Veneto region made from the Prosecco grape. The local cooperative in the town of Valdobbiadene produces Prosecco di Valdobbiadene Brut. Brut means it's very dry. The bouquet reminds me of wet stones and spring flowers and the flavour is crisp with a long lemony finish. Chill it well and serve it in flute-shaped glasses. It costs $13.25 a bottle. That's Prosecco di Valdobbiadene from Veneto. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler. ($13.25, LCBO #340570)

Moselland Divinium Riesling 2004
Riesling is an ideal hot-weather wine because it has refreshing acidity as well as a touch of sweetness. And German Riesling is low in alcohol – which is good if you're quaffing a chilled glass in the sun. Moselland Divinium Riesling 2004 has a nose of minerals and sweet grapefruit. It tastes of honey and grapefruit and has a good clean finish. To make life easy, it comes with a screwcap. It's the kind of wine you can sip as an aperitif or drink with spicy tapas. It costs $11.85. That's Moselland Divinium Riesling 2004 from the Mosel in Germany. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler. ($11.85, LCBO #619676)
