Vineland Estates Dry Riesling 2007 (Ontario)
$13.95 (LCBO #167551)
This 2007 vintage is simply the best Dry Riesling I have tasted from Vineland Estates. Pale straw in colour with a lime tinge On the nose, minerally, citrus that opens on the palate to rich grapefruit and nectarine flavours with a slight spritzy sensation on the tongue. Beautifully balanced, great value. ****½
Food match: grilled tout; lobster salad

Mondavi Woodbridge Pinot Grigio 2007 (California)
$10.95 (LCBO #523431)
Most Pinot Grigios I find insipid but this one has lots of flavour for the price. Light straw colour with a nose of white peach and citrus peel, flavours that come through on the palate. Medium-bodied, fresh and lively.
Food match: Caesar salad; BBQ shrimp

Hardy's Nottage Hill Shiraz 2006 (Australia)
$13.95 (LCBO #375964)
A well-priced Aussie Shiraz. Dense ruby colour; smoky black cherry nose with a note of leather; medium-bodied, sweet black cherry fruit with a solid acidic spine. Finishes on a minty note with soft, plushy tannins. ***½
Food match: hamburgers; pork ribs
