680News wine reviews – October 31–November 2, 2008 

Creekside Butler's Grant Riesling 2007
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. Currently at Vintages stores and selling for $15.95, this wine from a warm vintage is 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. That's Creekside Butler's Grant Riesling 2007 from Ontario at Vintages stores. Match it with Thai or Chinese cuisine. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler. ($15.95, Vintages #80267)

Domaine des Graves d'Ardonneau 2005
The Cote de Blaye is an under appreciated region of Bordeaux across the river from the better known regions of St. Julien and Pauillac. Here the dominant variety in the blend is Merlot. Domaine des Graves d'Ardonneau 2005 currently at vintages stores is 75% Merlot; the rest is Cabernet Sauvignon. It costs $24.95 and is worth every penny. 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. Great with lamb. That's Domaine des Graves d'Ardonneau 2005 from Bordeaux. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler. ($24.95, Vintages #87692)
