680News wine reviews – December 14–16, 2012 

Mouton Cadet Blanc 2011
Mouton Cadet is one of those brands that's been around since the 1930s and used to be on everyone's wine list. Recently I tasted Mouton Cadet Blanc 2011 and found it to be the best vintage I've tasted in many years. A blend of 60% Semillon, 30% Sauvignon Blanc, and 10% Muscadelle, it's pale straw in colour with a lime tint. On the nose, it's grassy and green fig. The palate is dry, light to medum-bodied with tropical fruit notes. Very elegant and good value at $13.45. Try it with grilled fish or spaghetti alle vongole. That's Mouton Cadet Blanc 2011 from Bordeaux. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680News and 680News.com. ($13.45, LCBO #2527)

Fresita
Here's a wine for people who say they don't like wine. It's called Fresita and it comes from Chile. It's a non-vintage blend of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc , Moscatel with strawberries from Patagonia. It's one of those easy-drinking wines that's impossible not to like. It's light on the palate – only 8% alcohol – and it tastes like raspberry puree in a glass, with just enough acidity to keep it from tipping over into cloying sweetness. It costs $13.95 a bottle. Not a wine for food but something to sip while you're standing around chatting at Christmas parties. That's Fresita from Chile. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680News and 680News.com. ($13.95, LCBO #56697)
