680News wine reviews – November 23–25, 2012 

Henry of Pelham Barrel Fermented Chardonnay 2010
Ontario is making world-class Chardonnay at very good prices compared to white Burgundy. Try Henry of Pelham Barrel Fermented Chardonnay 2010 currently at Vintages outlets. Light straw in colour, it offers a minerally nose of spicy oak and apples. The wine is more concentrated on the palate than the bouquet suggests. Sweet melon and pineapple flavours fill the mouth, nicely balanced with well integrated oak. It's toasty and nutty on the finish. It costs $19.95 at Vintages. Goes great with roast chicken. That's Henry of Pelham Barrel Fermented Chardonnay 2010 from Ontario. For Post City magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680News and 680News.com. ($19.95, Vintages #268342)

Cavino Grande Reserve Nemea 2006
There is more to Greek wine than Retsina. Though they have international varieties planted for their red wines, the more interesting are the local grapes. Cavino Grande Reserve Nemea 2006 is made from Agiorgitiko grape (also known as St. George). This wine, priced at $14.95 at vintages outlets, has a deep ruby colour and a nose of tobacco leaf, cedar and cherries. It is an easy-drinking wine with a sweet cherry flavour that finishes dry and savoury with ripe tannins. Try it with lamb stew. That's Cavino Grande Reserve Nemea 2006 from Greece. For Post City magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680News and 680News.com. ($14.95, Vintages #295618)
