Fielding Estate Riesling 2009 (Ontario)
$15.95 (LCBO #146761)
Very pale in colour, but don't let that fool you. This Riesling has a nose of lime and minerals; it's light-bodied, elegant and clean on the plate with zesty flavours of lime and peach. ****½ (89)
Food match: shrimp salad; onion tart

Jackson-Triggs Delaine Vineyard Syrah 2007 (Ontario)
$29.95 (Vintages #86553)
Dense ruby-purple in colour, this Syrah is a serious wine with a spicy, blackberry and vanilla oak nose. More Northern Rhône than Aussie, it's medium-bodied, fresh and lively on the palate with ripe tannins and firm structure. ***** (90)
Food match: pepper steak; 6-year-old cheddar.

Meditrina Red Wine (Oregon)
$19.95 (LCBO #206888)
A non-vintage blend of Oregon Pinot Noir, Columbia Valley Syrah and Paso Robles Zinfandel, named for the Roman goddess of health, longevity and wine. Deep purple-ruby in colour, the wine has a fruity, plummy nose with a note of leather; it's spicy with a sweet note of black fruits, medium-bodied, easy drinking and soft on the palate. **** (88)
Food match: pizza; hamburger
