680News wine reviews – October 7–9, 2011 

Jacob's Creek Reserve Riesling 2010
Australia is not the first place I look for quality Riesling at a reasonable price, but I tasted one recently that changed my mind. It's Jacob's Creek Reserve Riesling 2010 from the Barossa Valley. For one-year-old Riesling it's already developing petrol notes on the nose to complement the lime, grapefruit and honeyed notes. It has a slight spritz on the palate with a sweet and sour flavour, initially off-dry and then dries out on the finish with lively citrus acidity. It costs $16.95. Serve it with pork chops or Thai dishes. That's Jacob's Creek Reserve Riesling 2010 from Australia. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680 News and 680 News.com. ($16.95, LCBO #212704)

Marchesi Torrigiani Torre di Ciardo 2006
Love the sound of these Tuscan wines that roll of the tongue: Marchesi Torrigiani Torre di Ciardo 2006 is a blend of Sangiovese, Colorino, Canaiolo and Merlot. It's ruby colour with a smoky, minerally, black cherry nose; On the palate it's savoury with flavours of dried cherry, orange peel and earthy tones, firmly structured with good length. You'll find it at Vintages outlets for $19.95. Serve it with tomato-based pasta dishes or game pâté. That's Marchesi Torrigiani Torre di Ciardo 2006 from Tuscany at Vintages outlets. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680 News and 680 News.com. ($19.95, Vintages #212084)
