680News wine reviews – October 12–14, 2007 

Henry of Pelham Riesling Reserve 2006
In May I recommended an Ontario Riesling 2006 from Henry of Pelham. Recently I tasted the Reserve bottling of this wine and it's terrific for the price. On the nose you get that minerally grapefruit aroma. On the palate, the wine is crisply dry with tart grapefruit and lime flavours that linger long in the mouth. Really good value at $14.95. That's Henry of Pelham Riesling Reserve 2006 from Ontario. Try it with sea food or grilled sardines. If you miss any of my recommendations because you're driving you can go the 680News.com website and click on my link, You'll find them there. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler. ($14.95, LCBO #283291)

Grant Burge Barossa Vines Cabernet Merlot 2005
Grant Burge is a fifth-generation winegrower in the Barossa Valley. But his winemaking style owes more to Europe than it does to Australia. His Barossa valley Cabernet Merlot is a blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Merlot. It's deep ruby-purple in colour with a nose of cedar, pencil lead, plum and currant. It's medium-bodied, dry with fresh acidity. More like a claret from Bordeaux than an Aussie Cabernet. It costs $16.15 and it's a wine for hearty meat dishes like osso buco or boeuf bourguignon. That's Grant Burge Barossa Vines Cabernet Merlot 2005 from Australia. For Post City magazines, I'm Tony Aspler. ($16.15, LCBO #619379)
