680News wine reviews – July 29–31, 2011 

Vineland Estates Unoaked Chardonnay 2010
At the International Cool Climate Chardonnay Celebration last week I tasted on Ontario wine that held its own in comparison to more costly Chardonnays from around the world. It was Vineland Estates Unoaked Chardonnay 2010, which has 15% Pinot Blanc in the blend. Pale straw in colour, it has flavours of peach and pineapple with a creamy mouth feel. It costs a modest $12.95 at the LCBO. Try it with chicken salad. That's Vineland Estates Unoaked Chardonnay 2010 from Ontario. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680News and 680News.com. ($12.95, LCBO #669374)

Quinta da Aveleda Vinho Verde 2010
The most refreshing wine to drink on a hot day is Vinho Verde from Portugal. Verde means green, which isn't the colour of the wine but the landscape of northern Portugal where it's grown in. Quinta da Aveleda Vinho Verde 2010 is a blend of three local grapes - Loueiro, Trajadura, and Alvarinho. It's very pale in colour with a lime tint; the nose is minerally with a bouquet of wet salt and citrus peel with a hint of white flowers. It's light on the palate, fresh and lemony with the faintest prickle on the tongue. It costs $8.95 at the LCBO. Great with seafood. That's Quinta da Aveleda Vinho Verde 2010 from Portugal. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680News and 680News.com. ($8.95, LCBO #5322)
