680News wine reviews – June 14–16, 2013 

Main Divide Riesling 2010
When you think of New Zealand, your mind turns to Sauvignon Blanc, but recently I came across a delicious Riesling from the South Island's Waipara Valley. Main Divide Riesling 2010 is a bouquet of peaches and grapefruit with a floral note and is already developing those characteristic maturing Riesling notes of petrol. The wine is off-dry with lime and peach flavours and a light spritz on the palate. It costs $19.95 at Vintages outlets. Perfect for pork chops. That's Main Divide Riesling 2010 from New Zealand. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680News and 680News.com. ($19.95, Vintages #309567).

13th Street Pink Palette Rosé 2012
Last week I recommended a rosé from Spain for summer drinking. Well, here's one from Ontario in the same price range. 13th Street Pink Palette Rosé is so deep in colour you could call it a pale ruby. The flavour is a mix of redcurrants and cranberries, very dry and crisp and stylish for the price. It costs $14.95 at Vintages outlets. The folks at Vintages suggest you try it with pork skewers and tzatziki, which sounds eminently sensible. That's 13th Street Pink Palette Rosé 2012 from Ontario. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680News and 680News.com. ($14.95, Vintages #275834)
