680News wine reviews – June 3–5, 2011 

Château Pey La Tour 2009
The 2009 vintage in Bordeaux was one of the great years when Cabernet Sauvignon ripened well. A good example at the bargain-end of Bordeaux's hierarchy of quality is Château Pey La Tour 2009. What you get for $14.05 is that characteristic red Bordeaux nose of blackcurrants and cedar with an earthy note. On the palate it's medium-bodied, dry with cherry and blackcurrant flavours melded with ripe tannins. An ideal accompaniment to lamb burgers or lamb chops. That's Château Pey La Tour 2009 from Bordeaux. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680 News and 680News.com. ($14.05, LCBO #264986)

McWilliam's Hanwood Estate Moscato
Some wines are just made for summer, and none more so than Moscato, which usually comes from Italy. These lightly sparkling wines have an alcohol reading of about 6 per cent, which makes them very light on the palate. But the one I'm recommending today actually comes from Australia: McWilliam's Hanwood Estate Moscato. The bouquet of orange blossom and honey suggests sweetness but the wine has a grapey, cidery flavour that finishes freshly in the mouth. It costs $13.95. Chill it well and serve it as an aperitif wine or with strawberry shortcake. That's McWilliam's Hanwood Estate Moscato from Australia. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680News and 680News.com. ($13.95, LCBO #212696)
