680News wine reviews – August 26–28, 2011 

François Lurton Les Fumés Blanches Sauvignon Blanc 2010
François Lurton is a flying winemaker based in Bordeaux who also makes wine in Argentina, Chile, Spain and other regions of France. And he's something of a Sauvignon Blanc specialist. In the Languedoc-Roussillon he makes a wine called Les Fumées Blanches Sauvignon Blanc 2010. It's very pale straw in colour with an herbaceous, green plum nose; it has a soft mouth feel and a gooseberry flavour with tart acidity. Good value at $11.95. Match it with Caesar Salad or grilled scallops. That's François Lurton Les Fumées Blanches Sauvignon Blanc 2010 from France. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680News and 680News.com. ($11.95, LCBO #472555)

Bodegas Argüeso San León Manzanilla Clásica Sherry
Sherry, I'm convinced, will soon make a comeback. It's the perfect pre-dinner drink and a great accompaniment for a variety of foods depending on its sweetness level. The one I'm recommending today is bone dry. Bodegas Argüeso San León Manzanilla Clásica has a nose of dried apricots, almonds and camomile. There's a hint of saltiness on the nose; it's fresh and lively on the palate with great length. It costs $16.95 at Vintages outlets. Chill it lightly and serve it with grilled sardines or camembert. That's Bodegas Argüeso San León Manzanilla Clásica Sherry from Spain at Vintages. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680News and 680News.com. ($16.95, Vintages #703066)
