680News wine reviews – March 4–6, 2011 

Jackson-Triggs Delaine Vineyard Syrah 2007
One of the best Ontario red wines I've tasted in the past few weeks is Jackson-Triggs Delaine Vineyard Syrah 2007. Dense ruby-purple in colour, this Syrah is a serious wine with a spicy, blackberry and vanilla oak nose. More Northern Rhône in style than Australian Shiraz, it's medium-bodied, fresh and lively on the palate with ripe tannins and firm structure. It costs $29.95 at Vintages outlets. Try it with a pepper steak or a 6-year-old cheddar. That's Jackson-Triggs Delaine Vineyard Syrah 2007 from Ontario.  For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680 News and 680News.com. ($29.95, Vintages #86553)

Flat Rock Cellars Twisted 2009
Several of the Ontario wineries are beginning to make blended white wines which they call by proprietary names. Flat Rock Cellars has a blend they call "Twisted." The 2009 vintage is mainly Riesling with Gewurztraminer and Chardonnay. Given the Riesling and Gewurz you get a very aromatic wine with clove, lychee and green apple flavours. It finishes dry with good length. With a name like Twisted it's got to be bottled under screwcap – and it is. It costs $16.95. An ideal sipping wine or one to match with Thai dishes. That's Flat Rock Cellars Twisted 2009, available at Vintages outlets. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680 News and 680News.com. ($16.95, Vintages #1578)
