680News wine reviews – October 19–21, 2007 

Vina Errazuriz Max Reserva Shiraz 2005
Shiraz is the flavour of the month, it seems. The LCBO has bought heavily into this variety following consumer demand. Shiraz doesn't only come from Australia; you can find it in South Africa, California, Ontario, BC and Chile. In fact Chile does a remarkably good job with this variety. Try Errazuriz Max Reserva Shiraz 2005 at the LCBO. It costs $18.15 but it's well worth it. Its dense purple in colour with a spicy blackberry nose; the wine is concentrated and full-bodied with well extracted black fruits; nicely balanced with a smoky, peppery note on the finish. Try it with pepper steak or loin of venison. That's Errazuriz Max Reserva Shiraz 2005 from Chile. If you're in you car and concentrating on the road, you can find my reviews by visiting 680News.com, then click on my link. For Post City magazines, I'm Tony Aspler. ($18.15, LCBO #614750)

Miguel Torres Santa Digna Reserve 2006
Sauvignon Blanc, for my palate, is the most versatile of white wines when it comes to matching with food. Its lively acidity and green fruit flavours make it ideal for most dishes you'd select a white wine for, especially with vegetarian fare. A good choice would be Miguel Torres Santa Digna Reserve Sauvignon Blanc from Chile. You can find it in Vintages stores at $12.95 a bottle. The wine is pale straw in colour with a grassy, grapefruit bouquet. On the palate, you get that fresh and mouth-tingling flavour of gooseberries and a long clean finish. Try it with any fish dish or with goat's cheese. That's Miguel Torres Santa Digna Reserve Sauvignon Blanc 2006 from Chile. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler.
