680News wine reviews – June 28–30, 2013 

13th Street Gamay Noir 2011
Gamay, the grape that makes Beaujolais, also produces the most versatile of food wines. At room temperature you can serve it with meat. Chilled, it can work well with salmon. Ontario makes terrific Gamay. Have a look at 13th Street Gamay Noir 2011 at Vintages. It's light purple in colour with a rich, smoky cherry-berry nose; it's medium-bodied, dry with crisp acidity and a gentle tannic line giving it good structure. It costs $19.95 at Vintages outlets. Just the job for Canada Day. That's 13th Street Gamay Noir from Ontario. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680News and 680News.com. ($19.95, Vintages #177824)

Kacaba Unoaked Chardonnay 2012
If you're looking for an Ontario white to help celebrate Canada Day, try Kacaba Unoaked Chardonnay 2012. Straw coloured, this medium-bodied wine has a floral, apple nose with a dry, red apple flavour. It's fresh and lively and nicely balanced by citrus acidity. It's a wine for quaffing on the dock or the patio or matching with tapas. It costs $14.95 at LCBO stores. That's Kacaba Unoaked Chardonnay 2012 from Vineland Ontario. Kacaba is spelled K-A-C-A-B-A. ($14.95, LCBO #326975)
