680News wine reviews – April 16–18, 2010 

Marcel Deiss Pinot d'Alsace 2004
To be released tomorrow at Vintages is a white wine that really caught my attention. It comes from one of the great producers in Alsace – Marcel Deiss. The wine is Marcel Deiss Pinot d'Alsace 2004. The wine is beautifully made and seamless on the palate. The colour is old gold. The bouquet is a rich amalgam of peach, mandarin, honey and mineral notes. The flavour explodes on the palate like biting into a sweet, ripe peach. It costs $17.95 a bottle at Vintages outlets. That's Marcel Deiss, spelled D-E-I-S-S, Pinot d'Alsace 2004. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler. ($17.95, Vintages #165365)

Cono Sur Riesling 2009
Riesling because of its high acidity and the tension between sweet and sour is the most refreshing wine in warm weather. And, because it's not the flavour of the month, like Chardonnay or Sauvignon Blanc it's usually very inexpensive. Currently at the LCBO is a Riesling from Chile that's under $10 a bottle. It's Cono Sur Riesling 2009. The wine is pale straw in colour with a bouquet of lime and white flowers. The flavour is off-dry with honey and citrus notes that persist on the palate on lively acidity. It costs $9.95 and makes an ideal aperitif. That's Cono Sur Riesling 2009 from Chile. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler. ($9.95, LCBO #156653
