680News wine reviews – April 2–4, 2010 

Cave Spring Gamay 2007
Gamay is the Rodney Dangerfield of grapes. But in the right hands Gamay – the grape of Beaujolais – can make a delicious, inexpensive and versatile food wine. Cave Spring in Niagara did a great job with their Gamay in 2007, Ontario's best red wine vintage in living memory. This wine could be mistaken for an Ontario Pinot Noir. It has a pale ruby colour and a sour cherry, smoky, spicy nose. It's dry, medium-bodied with focused red berry flavours and refreshing acidity. It costs $12.95 a bottle. It's a wine for grilled salmon or chicken. That's Cave Spring Gamay 2007 from Ontario. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler. ($12.95, LCBO #228569)

Masi Modello Bianco 2009
For my palate Italy's best white wines are blends, which really tests the skill and craftsmanship of the winemaker. For the 2009 vintage the Veneto producer Masi released a new white blend called Modello Bianco. It's a mix of Garganega, Pinot Grigio and Pinot Bianco. It's a dry, light-bodied wine with aromas of tree fruit and flowers with a minerally note. The flavour of pear and green apple run through it. It costs an affordable $9.95 and would pair well with seafood or delicate white fish. That's Masi Modello Bianco 2009 from Italy. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler. ($9.95, LCBO #564674)
