680News wine reviews – June 4–6, 2010 

Monte Cheval Vranac 2007
When was the last time you had a wine from Montenegro? If you say not since dinner I'll give you the benefit of the doubt. The LCBO has a Montenegrin red tucked away called Monte Cheval Vranac 2007. Vranac is an ancient, indigenous variety in the Balkans . The name translates as "black stallion," which will give you some idea of the power of this wine. It has a rustic, earthy plum flavour with a touch of spicy and it costs $9.35 a bottle. Try it with hamburgers or pizza. That's Monte Cheval Vranac 2007 from Montenegro. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680 News and 680 News.com. ($9.35, LCBO #542498)

Cave Spring Off-Dry Riesling 2008
A glass of chilled Ontario Riesling on a summer day when the sun is shining – what contentment. Riesling comes in all shades of dry to honey sweet so you have to really take a look at the label to see if it suits your palate. If you like Rieslings that are completely dry, try Cave Spring Dry Riesling 2008 which costs $14.25 (the same price as their sweeter, medium dry Riesling). This dry version has a mouth-watering grapefruit and lime flavour with racy acidity. It's a perfect aperitif or will match well with seafood dishes. That's Cave Spring Dry Riesling from Ontario. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680 News and 680 News.com. ($14.25, LCBO #234583)
