680News wine reviews – June 29–July 1, 2007 

Peter Lehmann Rosé 2006
There's nothing like a glass of chilled rosé on a hot summer's day. Very refreshing. But if you want to serve it with food look for a pink wine with lots of character. And you needn't look farther than Peter Lehmann Rosé 2006 from Australia's Barossa Valley. Made from the Grenache grape in the Barossa Valley, it's very deep in colour for a rosé – almost crimson. On the nose you get fruit aromas of spicy raspberry and cherry. It's full on the palate with a touch of residual sweetness that will marry well with spicy marinades that you use for barbecued meats or ribs. It costs $15.95 a bottle at Vintages outlets. That's Peter Lehmann Rosé 2006 from Australia. If you're driving and can't make a note you can look it up on the web at Tony Aspler.com. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler. ($15.95, Vintages #34298)

Kistler Chardonnay 2005
Usually, I'm recommending wines in the $1 to $20 price bracket because that's where most of us shop for our everyday drinking wines. But once and I while I go nuts and want the very best. When it comes to California Chardonnays I am a great Kistler fan. The winery is located in the Russian River region of Sonoma and they make a series of Chardonnays in white burgundy style. Kistler Chardonnay 2005 from the Carneros in the southern part of Sonoma is a magnificent mouthful of wine. Deep straw in colour, it has a nose of butter and cream and tropical fruit. It's not cheap at $79.95 but when you compare it to Puligny Montrachet and Batard-Montrachet – the great white Burgundies – it's a bargain. It's only available at Vintages outlets. That's Kistler Chardonnay 2005 from California. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler. ($79.95, Vintages #29330)
