680News wine reviews – October 12–14, 2012 

Vineland Estates Elevation Riesling 2011
Regular listeners to these wine reviews will know that I have a thing about Riesling and Ontario Riesling in particular. Just released at Vintages is Vineland Estates Elevation Riesling 2011. It's very pale in colour with a bouquet of lime, honey and pear skin. It's medium-bodied with a zesty, off-dry flavour that fairly dances on the tongue with a light effervescence. It costs $19.95 a bottle. And it works beautifully with spicy Thai dishes. That's Vineland Estates Elevation Riesling 2011 from Ontario at Vintages outlets. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680News and 680News.com. ($19.95, Vintages #38117)

Burning Kiln Harvest Party Cabernet Franc 2011
Burning Kiln, a new winery in St. Williams, in the Lake Erie North Shore appellation, uses a traditional Italian process to make their wines. They dry the grapes before fermentation in an old tobacco kiln. This concentrates the sugars in the gapes and gives a rich flavour. Burning Kiln Harvest Party Cabernet Franc 2011 has an enticing nose of cedar, red berries with a floral note. The wine is mouth-filling with sweet fruit and earthy, smoky flavours. A great effort for their second vintage. It costs $17.95 at Vintages outlets. Perfect for the Barbecue. That's Burning Kiln Harvest Party Cabernet Franc 2011 from Ontario. I'm Tony Aspler, 680News and 680News.com. ($17.95, Vintages #301515)
