Yellow Jersey Chardonnay 2006 (Languedoc)
$14.95 (LCBO #40980)
From Boisset, the folks who brought you French Rabbit (the first tetrapak on the market). A PET bottle (light plastic). The wine is very approachable, sweetish pear flavour, clean and easy drinking with enough acidity to give it interest. ***½
Food match: aperitif wine; cold chicken salad

$12.95 (1000 mL Tetrapak, LCBO #36509)
Gallo's first venture into Tetrpak for the Canadian market. Deep ruby colour with a blackberry nose with mocha notes. Soft, milk chocolate and vanilla flavours, melting tannins. Good value for the price. ***½
Food match: pork loin; mild cheddar

Peninsula Ridge Sauvignon Blanc 2006 (Niagara Peninsula)
$15.15 (Available at the winery or through www.winerytohome.com)
Medium straw colour with a minerally, grassy, green fruit bouquet. A taste of fresh gooseberry with grapefruit acidity; lively on the palate, medium-bodied with good fleshy extract; good length. Good value. ****
Food match: goat cheese salad; asparagus
