680News wine reviews – April 24–26, 2009 

Peter Lehmann Cabernet Sauvignon 2005
The Australians may not have invented the BBQ but they've certainly made it their own and their gutsy red wines are perfect for steaks and ribs. A good choice is Peter Lehmann Cabernet Sauvignon 2005 from the Barossa Valley. The wine is a mature ruby colour; the nose is spicy blackcurrants. It's full-bodied creamy, sandalwood and black fruit flavours. Perfect for a pepper steak or parmesan cheese. It costs $19.95 at the LCBO. That's Peter Lehmann Cabernet Sauvignon 2005 from Australia.

Pierre Sparr Riesling 2007
The Alsace region produces a range of food-friendly white wines, amongst which is Riesling. But it has little in common stylistically with the neighbouring German Riesling. Alsace Riesling is dry and higher in alcohol. Recently I tried the 2007 vintage of Pierre Sparr's Riesling. The wine is ale straw in colour with a nose of white flowers, citrus, and minerals. It's already developing petrol notes, a sign of maturing Riesling. It's medium-bodied with crisp green apple and citrus notes and good length. Well priced at $15 a bottle. Try it with pork roast or onion tart. That's Pierre Sparr Riesling 2007 from Alsace. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler. ($15, LCBO #618546)
