680News wine reviews – July 3–5, 2009 

Cono Sur Rosé 2008
Rosé speaks of summer sunshine to me. It's the ideal picnic wine when nicely chilled. There's nothing like a dry rosé for accompany cold meats, pates and cheeses. Recently I tasted Cono Sur Merlot Rosé 2008 from Chile. It's deep pink in colour with a bouquet of wild strawberries and minerals. The wine has a soft mouth-feel and a hint of sweetness in its cherry-like flavour. Very easy drinking. And the cost will surprise you. It's $9.95 a bottle at the LCBO. That's Cono Sur Merlot Rosé from Chile. If you miss any of these reviews you can find them by going to the 680News.com website and clicking on my link. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler. ($9.95, LCBO #122481)

Beaujolais
Beaujolais is the most versatile of red wines. You can serve it at room temperature for meat dishes and chill it for fish. Chilling brings up the perception of acidity. There are three basic levels of quality: simple Beaujolais, Beaujolais-Villages, and the top level, the ten named village wines of Beaujolais, such as Morgon, Moulin-a-Vent, Fleurie and Julienas. Of course, the price rises with each level, ranging from $12 for simple Beaujolais to $21 for the named village wines. And, if you react badly to red wines, Beaujolais might be the wine to choose because it has low amounts of tannin – the compound that triggers red wine headaches. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler.
