680News wine reviews – January 18–20, 2013 

Uvaggio Moscato Secco 2010
With a name like Uvaggio Moscato Secco you'd expect the wine to come from Italy, perhaps Veneto. In fact, it comes from Lodi in California and this wine currently at Vintages stores is an absolute delight. The Muscat grape is highly perfumed with notes of cardamom and lilac and flavours of orange, melon and mango that finish refreshingly dry. The 2010 vintage costs $19.95. Try it with Indian food or Thai dishes or simply as an aperitif. That's Uvaggio Moscato Secco 2010 from California at Vintages outlets. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680News and 680News.com. ($19.95, Vintages #297515)

The Wolftrap Syrah Mourvedre Viognier 2011
The South African winery Boekenhoutskloof has been doing a great job with grapes usually associated with the Rhone Valley. Currently on the general list at the LCBO is The Wolftrap Syrah Mourvèdre Viognier 2011. The blend of those three grapes produces a deep ruby-coloured wine with a nose of blackberries and black olives. The full-bodied savoury taste of blackberries with an iodine note fills the mouth. It costs $12.95 a bottle. Try it with red meat dishes. That's Boekenhoutskloof The Wolftrap Syrah Mourvèdre Viognier 2011 from South Africa. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680News and 680News.com. ($12.95 until February 3, then $13.95, LCBO #292557)
