Château des Charmes Chardonnay Estate Bottled 2007
Ontario's wineries excel in Chardonnay at popular prices. A great example is Château des Charmes Estate Bottled Chardonnay 2007 with the black label. It's straw coloured with a nose of apple, cut grass and a discreet note of oak. On the palate it offers sweet apple and melon flavours. It's richly extracted; full-bodied with moderate length and well priced at $13.95 a bottle. Serve it with roast chicken or pasta in cream sauce. That's Château des Charmes Chardonnay Estate Bottled 2007 from the Niagara Peninsula. Look for the black label. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler. ($13.95, LCBO #81653)

Badischer Winzerkeller Gewürztraminer 2007
In the summertime German wines come into their own. Their low alcohol and fruity acidity make them very appealing on warm days. And they're not going to make a dent in your wallet either. Recently I had smoked salmon with a wine from Baden, Badischer Winzerkeller Gewürztraminer 2007. The wine is off-dry with flavours of lychee, rose petal and caramel, but with enough racy acidity to keep it in balance. And the price is right at $10.50 a bottle. It also works well with Thai or Indian food. That's Badischer Winzerkeller Gewürztraminer 2007 from Baden. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler. ($10.50, LCBO #336735)
