Mommessin Beaujolais Grande Reserve 2006 (Beaujolais)
$14.95 (LCBO #63438)
If only for the packaging this wine would be worth picking up – but it tastes good too. An aluminum bottle with a chill spot that turns blue when you refrigerate it to the requisite 12°C temperature. Fresh cherry flavour, dry and fruity. ***½
Food match: tomato-based pasta dishes; chicken salad

Bottega Petalo Il Vino dell'Amore Moscato (Veneto)
$12.75 (LCBO #588780)
A delightfully light and fresh sparkler at 6.5% alcohol. A nose of honey, orange and carnations. Sweet and easy drinking. ***½
Food match: biscotti; aperitif

Strewn Terroir Chardonnay Amalgam 2006 (Niagara-on-the-Lake)
$25.15 (Available only at the winery or through www.winerytohome.com)
A fine Ontario Chardonnay with Burgundian pretensions. Straw colour with an elegant nose of apples with well integrated oak. Full-bodied, a fine apple flavour with caramel notes and spicy oak; great finish with a toasty, smoky finish. ****½
Food match: lobster; roast pheasant
