680 NEWS wine reviews – May 11–13, 2007 

Henry of Pelham Dry Riesling 2006
Riesling may not be Ontario consumer's first pick as a white wine, but it is certainly what Ontario does best. The latest vintage of this variety is especially good and you don't have to pay a lot for it. My pick of those Ontario Rieslings available at the LCBO is Henry of Pelham Dry Riesling 2006. This wine is pale straw in colour with a minerally, grapefruit nose that has a floral grace note. It's crisp, light-bodied and elegant on the palate with a lime and grapefruit flavour and a grassy note. Add to this, good length and you have a terrific wine for $13.15. Try it chilled as an aperitif wine or with smoked fish. That's Henry of Pelham Dry Riesling 2006. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler. ($13.15, LCBO #268375)

Georges Dubœuf Beaujolais Villages 2005
If you've already started barbecuing then you'll be looking for a versatile red wine that you can serve with anything you throw on the grill. And since you usually have a few people over when you fire up, you'll need sufficient wine to go around at a price that doesn't compromise your child's future education. Have a look at Georges Dubœuf Beaujolais Villages 2005 in the magnum format. That's equivalent to two bottles. The cost is $24.85 Purple-ruby in colour, it has a spicy black cherry nose. It's clean and fruity with lively acidity and well made well made – a party-sized gulpable red best served lightly chilled. Chill it more and you can serve it with barbecued fish. For post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler. ($24.85, LCBO #29066)
