Aveleda Fonte Vinho Verde 2008 (Portugal)
$8.95 (LCBO #5322)
The ideal summer wine for the hot weather. It's light in alcohol and dances on the palate with its slightly spritzy character. It has a nose of white flowers, lemon and white peach. It's off-dry with a refreshing lemony finish. It costs $8.95 a bottle. Chill it well. ***½ (87)
Food match: aperitif; grilled sardines

Tapena Tempranillo 2008 (Spain)
$13.95 (LCBO #72942)
Deep ruby colour with a nose of milk chocolate, plums and leather. Medium-bodied, dry with forward fruit but enough tannin to give it structure. ***½ (86)
Food match: BBQ ribs; hamburgers

Flat Rock Cellars Gravity Pinot Noir 2007 (Ontario)
$30 (Available only at the winery 905-562-8994 or email Edward@flatrockcellars.com)
Simply the best Pinot Noir this winery has made. Ruby in colour with a purple tint. A nose of plums and cherries; medium-bodied, richly extracted spicy sweet fruit with a thread of minerality. Beautifully balanced with oak. Don't miss it. ***** (92)
Food match: Duck breast; veal chop
