680News wine reviews – September 14–16, 2012 

François Lurton Janeil Cabernet Sauvignon
François Lurton has a knack for making inexpensive wines around the world that taste just great. His latest offering from the Languedoc Roussillon is Janeil Cabernet Sauvignon 2011. The wine is deep ruby-purple in colour a bouquet of cedar, blackcurrant and bramble berry. The taste is savoury, herbal and dry with a floral note. It costs $11.95 a bottle and it would work well with lamb loin or lamb chops. That's Francois Lurton Janeil Cabernet Sauvignon 2011 from France. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680News and 680News.com. ($11.95, LCBO #293076)

Monkey Bay Pinot Grigio 2011
New Zealand's Monkey Bay winery specialises in bargain-priced, easy-drinking wines. Jumping on the Pinot Grigio bandwagon, Monkey Bay have produced a wine in the 2011 vintage that is more like a Pinot Gris from Alsace than the light Pinot Grigios of northern Italy. Monkey Bay Pinot Grigio 2011 is coppery-straw in colour with a rich peachy, floral nose. It's a mouth-filling wine with well extracted peach-flavoured fruit and citrus acidity. It costs $13.95 a bottle and would complement grilled fish. That's Monkey Bay Pinot Grgio 2011 from New Zealand. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680News and 680News.com. ($13.95, LCBO #93666)
