680News wine reviews – August 23–25, 2013 

Emiliana Adobe Sauvignon Blanc Reserva 2012
I'm a big fan of the white wines from Chile's Casablanca Valley. Lots of flavour at affordable prices. Emiliana Adobe Sauvignon Blanc Reserva 2012 is pale straw in colour with a lime tint. It offers a bouquet of crushed elderberries with a grassy note; it's medium-bodied, crisply dry with the flavour of gooseberries and a lemony finish. It costs $12.95 at the LCBO. Try it with goat's cheese salad or ratatouille. That's Emiliana Adobe Sauvignon Blanc Reserva 2012 from Chile. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680News and 680News.com. ($12.95, LCBO #266049)

Boutari Naoussa 2008
Greece's indigenous grape variety Xinomavro translates literally as ‘sour black.' It's grown principally in the Naoussa region. A good example is Boutari Naoussa 2008 currently at the LCBO. The wine is medium ruby with a tawny rim; the bouquet is spicy, strawberry. It has a flavour of dried berries and plums with a firm tannic finish. Medium-bodied, it reminded me of a Nebbiolo from Piemonte and is good value at $12.95. Serve it with herbed chicken. That's Boutari Naoussa 2008 from Greece. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680News and 680News.com. ($12.95, Vintages #23218)
