680News wine reviews – August 2–4, 2013 

J. Lohr Riverstone Chardonnay 2011
If your taste runs to big and buxom New World Chardonnays, look no further than J. Lohr Riverstone Chardonnay 2011 from California's Monterey region. Ripe tropical fruit assails the nose riding on vanilla and oak spice. It's full-bodied and packed with spicy pear and toasty oak flavours that linger long on the palate. It costs $18.95 at Vintages outlets. Try it with lobster or a spicy crab salad. That's J. Lohr Riverstone Chardonnay 2011 from California. For Post City Magazines I'm Tony Aspler, 680News and 680News.com. ($18.95, Vintages #258699)

Flat Rock Pinot Noir 2010
Niagara produces some top-flight Pinot Noir and one of the most consistent producers is Flat Rock Cellars. Their 2010 currently at Vintages is ruby-coloured with a tawny rim. The nose is raspberry and violets with beetroot notes. On the palate it's dry and elegant and light, reminiscent of a Volnay from Burgundy in style. What gives it an Ontario flavour is the note of fennel on the finish. It costs $19.95. Try it chilled with salmon. That's Flat Rock Cellars Pinot Noir 2010 from Ontario. For Post City Magazines I'm Tony Aspler, 680News and 680News.com. ($19.95, Vintages #1545)
