  • Domaine des Graves d'Ardonneau 2005
  • Gessinger Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese 2005
 

Creekside Butler's Grant Riesling 2007 (Ontario)
$15.95 (Vintages #80267)
White wines from the 2007 vintage in Ontario – the best we've ever had – are now on the shelves. Of all varieties, Riesling was the most successful. A good example of the quality is Creekside Butler's Grant Riesling 2007. Already developing characteristic petrol notes on its honeyed grapefruit nose. Off-dry and medium-bodied, on the palate you taste ripe grapefruit and peach flavours nicely balanced with citrus acidity. ****
Food match: Thai or Chinese cuisine

Domaine des Graves d'Ardonneau 2005 (Côte de Blaye, Bordeaux)
$24.95 (Vintages #87692)
The Côte de Blaye is an underappreciated region of Bordeaux across the river from the better-known regions of St. Julien and Pauillac. 75% Merlot, the rest is Cabernet Sauvignon. Dense ruby in colour, it has a nose of cedar, vanilla and cassis. Medium-bodied with a savory blackcurrant flavour it's firmly structured with a herbal note on the finish. ****
Food match: lamb; roast beef

Gessinger Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese 2005 (Mosel)
$27.95 (Vintages #71456)
This is wine to sip before dinner or to take your mind off the stock market. It's a sweet wine but it's so beautifully balanced with racy acidity that it coats the tongue with honey and peach blossom and slips down the throat with fruit salad flavours of sweet grapefruit, apricot and mango. ****½
Food match: aperitif wine; fruit-based desserts.
