Deinhard Pinot Blanc Classic 2002 (Pfaltz, Germany)
$10.95 (general release)
A much simplified German label for the mono-lingual North American market. This wine is almost water white in colour with a lime tint, but don't let the colour fool you. It has a delicate nose of peach skin and apple and then opens on the palate with a firm sweet peach flavour. It finishes with a dry, tangy acidity which makes it a versatile food wine. Good value. ***˝
Food match: roast chicken, grilled tuna

Angels Gate Rosé 2002 (Niagara Peninsula, Ontario)
$10.95 (available at the winery, www.angelsgatewinery.com, 905-563-3942)
This new Ontario winery in Beamsville is making a mark right out of the gate (if you'll pardon the pun). This well-priced rosé is made from an interesting blend of Vidal and Gamay, mostly the former. It's deep pink with a bluish tint; the cherry nose suggests the wine is sweeter than it is until the Vidal kicks in with tart green plum acidity. ***˝
Food match: grilled scallops, Caesar Salad

Angels Gate Cabernet 2002 (Niagara Peninsula, Ontario)
$18.95 (available at the winery, www.angelsgatewinery.com, 905-563-3942)
A blend of 68% Cabernet Franc and 32% Cabernet Sauvignon. Solid ruby colour with an engaging nose of vanilla, spicy red berries and wet cedar bark. Medium-bodied and well structured with red currant and black cherry flavours; elegant, nicely balanced oak and fruit with a firm finish of chewy tannins. Hold 2–3 years. ****
Food match: lamb cutlets, mature Cheddar cheese
