680News wine reviews – April 22–24, 2011 

Malivoire Gamay 2008
Gamay is the grape of Beaujolais and I have always thought that it is a variety that would do well in Ontario. Certain wineries do a good job with this grape, such as Henry of Pelham, Cave Spring and Chateau des Charmes. But the best are made by Malivoire. Currently at Vintages is Malivoire Gamay 2008. Pale to medium ruby in colour, it has a nose of cherries and strawberries and white pepper. It's very Beaujolais-like in character, bright and fruity. You can serve it at room temperature with light meats or chilled to bring out the acidity with fish. That's Malivoire Gamay 2008 from Ontario at Vintages outlets. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680 News and 680 News.com. ($17.95, Vintages #591313)

Flat Rock Riesling 2009
Riesling is the most versatile of food wines. They range from bone dry to honeyed sweet and every gradation between those extremes. On the really dry end is Flat Rock Estate Riesling 2009 from Ontario. You can find it at Vintages for $16.95. Its minerally, peach and grapefruit flavours are mouth-watering. Just the wine for shellfish or to stimulate your appetite before dinner. That's Flat Rock Estate Riesling 2009 from Ontario at Vintages outlets. If you missed this review you can read it by visiting 680 News.com and clicking on my link. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680 News and 680 News.com. ($16.95, Vintages #43281)
