A tip for saving wine
If you open a bottle of wine and only consume half the bottle, here's a tip on how to keep the remaining wine fresh. Get a clean half bottle and fill it up leaving enough room for the cork. You want to exclude as much air as possible. Then put it in the fridge. Chilling slows down the oxidation process and you can keep red or white wines like this for a week or so. If you can find a half bottle with a screwtop that's even better, because you can cut down the amount of air in the head space. But make sure the bottle is clean. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler.

Peninsula Ridge Inox Chardonnay 2008
The French term "inox" translates as "stainless steel" and that is what the French winemaker Jean-Pierre Colas at Niagara's Peninsula Ridge winery calls his unoaked Chardonnay. The 2008 vintage currently at the LCBO costs $12.95 a bottle. The wine is straw coloured with a minerally, smoky, green apple nose; it's medium-bodied with sweet apple fruit with a spicy note and finishes crisply dry. Try it with spaghetti vongole or sautéed shrimps. That's Peninsula Ridge Inox Chardonnay 2008 from Ontario. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler. ($12.95, LCBO #594200)
