680News wine reviews – October 19–21, 2012 

Bottega Il Vino dei Poeti Brut
You can feel good about sipping on a glass of Bottega Il Vino dei Poeti Rosé Brut because you'll be supporting Princess Margaret Hospital's Cancer Foundation. Sandro Bottega, the proprietor of this Prosecco house in Veneto, is donating a portion of the price to the foundation. On the nose, the wine smells of raspberries with a note of ginger. It's dry and easy drinking with a red apple flavour. It costs $12.45 a bottle. That's Bottega Il Vino dei Poeti Rosé Brut. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680News and 680News.com. ($12.45, LCBO #277202)

Konzelmann Barrel Aged Shiraz 2011
Ontario Shiraz is not going to taste like Australian Shiraz. We just don't have the climate to make fruit bombs. The Ontario style is more like Syrah from the northern Rhone. Syrah and Shiraz are the same grape. Konzelmann Barrel Aged Shiraz 2011 is dense purple in colour with a nose of blackberry and pepper with spicy oak and a herbal note. It costs an affordable $12.95 a bottle. Just the job for lamb or beef. That's Konzelmann Barreled Shiraz from Ontario. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680News and 680News.com. ($12.45, LCBO #144857)
