  • La Vieille Ferme Côtes du Luberon 2009
 

Magnotta Special Reserve Semillon 2009 (Ontario)
($10.95, only from Magnotta stores)
Trust me, this wine is really worth searching out. You can only get it from Magnotta's stores around the city. This wine won a regional trophy at the Decanter World Wine Awards in London in April. Golden straw in colour with a waxy, honey and peach bouquet, it's medium-bodied on the palate, offering spicy peach and Bartlett pear flavours riding on lively acidity. ***** (90)
Food match: chicken salad; Brie

Boutari Moschfilero 2010 (Greece)
($10.95, LCBO #172387)
The perfect wine for summer on the patio. Pale straw in colour with a spicy orange blossom and peach bouquet, it's medium weight on the palate with flavours of peach, Granny Smith apple, a thread of minerality and a fine spine of acidity. If you like Pinot Grigio, this could be your passport into enjoying Greek wines – even if you can't pronounce their indigenous grapes. **** (88)
Food match: aperitif wine; Thai dishes

La Vieille Ferme Côtes du Luberon 2009 (Rhône Valley)
($11.95, LCBO #298505)
This has always been a solid white wine vintage after vintage. It's a blend of Grenache Blanc, Bourboulenc, Ugni Blanc and Roussanne. The grapes may be unfamiliar but they produce a wine that has a minerally, citrus nose. It's dry and fruity with a floral lift in mid palate. **** (88)
Food match: grilled trout; roast chicken
