680 NEWS wine reviews – November 17–19, 2006 

Stoneleigh Sauvignon Blanc 2006
Sauvignon Blanc is the signature grape of New Zealand, and if you like your white wines with some tartness and exotic fruit flavours you'll love this one. Stoneleigh Sauvignon Blanc 2006 from Marlborough, the region that supplies two-thirds of New Zealand Sauvignons. The wine is pale straw in colour with a vivid, grassy, passionfruit, lemon and grapefruit bouquet – flavours that explode on the palate. It's a very elegant crisply dry wine and it costs $14.95 a bottle. Try it with blackened scallops or goat cheese salad. That's Stoneleigh Sauvignon Blanc 2006 from New Zealand, For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler. ($14.95 LCBO #293043)

Terrale Nero D'Avola 2004
One of the best value reds I've come across at the LCBO in a long time is a Sicilian wine: Terrale Nero D'Avola 2004. The Nero D'Avola grape is an indigenous variety to Sicily and it produces a densely coloured purple-rubywine with a nose of licorice, plum and pencil lead; it's full-bodied and high-toned with plummy, dark chocolate flavours. The price? $9.45. Great for beef stew or fresh Parmesan. That's Terrale Nero D'Avola 2004 from Sicily. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler. ($9.45 LCBO #621177)
