Castillo Perelada Reserva Brut Cava
Spain is make some pretty nifty sparkling wines by the champagne method these days. They call them Cava, because they can't call them champagne. Currently at Vintages is a terrific cava: Castillo Perelada Reserva Brut Cava. It's pale straw in colour with a minerally, apple and citrus peel nose. Medium-bodied on the plate, it's dry, elegant with green apple and lemon flavours. Beautifully made. You can drink it as an aperitif or with a seafood platter. That's Castillo Perelada Reserva Brut Cava. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler. ($17.95, Vintages #114488)

Château des Charmes Chardonnay White Label 2007
One of the best values in Ontario wines is Château des Charmes White Label Chardonnay, which sells at the LCBO for $11.45 a bottle. What's more, it's consistent from vintage to vintage. The current 2007 vintage takes advantage of the ripeness of the year. Remember what a summer that was. The wine has a minerally, apple bouquet with well extracted, mouth-filling apple flavours nicely balanced with acidity. Match it with fish or chicken. That's Château des Charmes White Label Chardonnay 2007 from Niagara. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler. ($11.45, LCBO #56754)
