Viticoltori Aquesi Brachetto d'Acqui (Piemonte)
($13.35, LCBO #375667)
Here's the perfect summer sparkler. This foaming, light ruby-coloured wine is off-dry with cherry and rose petal flavours, refreshing and easy drinking with a mere 6.5% alcohol. A wine for sipping on the patio while waiting for the BBQ to heat up. **** (88)

Torres Viña Esmeralda Semi-Dry White 2013 (Penedes, Spain)
$13.95 (LCBO #377465)
Another great summer wine. Water white in colour with a lime tiny, it offers a fragrant Muscat nose of honeysuckle and orange, flavours that replicate on the palate. Initially off-dry it finishes dry. **** (88)
Food match: pork dishes; Thai food

Stoneleigh Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2013 (New Zealand)
$17.55 (LCBO #293043)
Very pale in colour with a sweaty, grassy, struck-flint nose; exuberant flavours of gooseberry and elderberry, crisply dry, medium-bodied with an engagingly tart finish. ****½ (89)
Food match: seafood; goat's cheese
