680News wine reviews – July 20–22, 2012 

Featherstone Gewürztraminer 2011
Gewürztraminer is the Shredded Wheat of wine. You either love it or you hate it for its overpowering perfume. I happen to love it, especially the Featherstone Gewürztraminer made in Niagara. The 2011, currently at Vintages outlets, has that characteristic lychee, grapefruit and rose petal nose. It's off-dry, ripe and sensuous, soft on the palate with good length. It costs $19.95 at Vintages. Ideal for serving with spicy dishes like light curries or Thai food. That's Featherstone Gewürztraminer 2011 from Ontario. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680News and 680News.com. ($19.95, Vintages #64592)

Château la Grave Expression 2009
The Minervois region of southern France produces bargain-priced reds that are great BBQ candidates. Currently at Vintages is Château La Grave Expression 2009, a Syrah, Grenache, Carignane and Mourvèdre blend that's a great buy at $13.95 in Vintages. Dense ruby in colour, it has a smoky nose of blackberries and licorice and the flavour of raspberries. Remarkably elegant for the price. Serve it with burgers or ribs. That's Château La Grave Expression 2009 from France at Vintages outlets. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680News and 680News.com. ($13.95, #277053)
