Palatine Hills Gewurztraminer 2008
I don't usually get excited about Gewurztraminer grown in Ontario but recently I came across one that had such precise varietal character that it could have come from Alsace. That's high praise indeed. Palatine Hills Proprietor's Reserve Gewurztraminer 2008 has that characteristic nose of lychee and rose petals. It's off-dry and fragrant with great balance. It costs $13.95 at the LCBO. Match it with Thai dishes or light curries. That's Palatine Hills Proprietor's Reserve Gewurztraminer 2008 from Ontario. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler. ($13.95, LCBO #101493)

Penfolds Koonunga Hill Shiraz Cabernet 2008
I'm a big fan Penfolds in Australia. The quality of Penfolds wines throughout the range is always consistently good even with their less costly products. They do, after all make Grange, Australia's flagship wine. But you can sample a red that's a great buy for $16.95. Penfolds Koonunga Hill Shiraz Cabernet 2008 is dense purple colour with a nose of cedar, blackberry and ground spices. It's medium to full-bodied, juicy but dry and spicy with flavours of black raspberry and plum and soft tannins. Perfect for lamb or steak. That's Penfolds Koonunga Hill Shiraz Cabernet 2008 from Australia. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler. ($16.35, LCBO #285544)
