680News wine reviews – March 6–8, 2015 

Wynns Coonawarra Chardonnay 2013
Australian wines have not been known for their delicacy and restraint but the trend is working in that direction. Wynn Coonawarra Chardonnay 2013, currently at Vintages outlets, is pale straw in colour with a minerally pear nose and only a whisper of oak. The wine is dry, medium-bodied with fresh pear and citrus flavours. Good length in the mouth and good value at $17.95. Match it with roast chicken or grilled fish. That's Wynns Coonawarra Chardonnay 2013 from Australia. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680News and 680News.com. ($17.95, Vintages #468728)

Pascual Toso Malbec Limited Edition
Grape names can be confusing. Auxerrois is a white grape grown in Alsace. Auxerrois is also a red grape grown in Cahors; but in Argentina, Cahors's Auxerrois is called Malbec and it's what they do best in the Mendoza Valley. Pascual Toso Malbec Limited Edition 2012 is a prime example. Dense ruby-purple in colour, it has a smoky, minerally, red berry nose; it's full-bodied, dry, soft and unctuous on the palate with well integrated oak. Good value at $15.95. Match it with red meat dishes. That's Pascual Toso Malbec Limited Edition 2012 from Argentina. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680News and 680News.com. ($15.95, LCBO #162610)
