680 NEWS wine reviews – October 30–November 1, 2015 

Jules Taylor Sauvignon Blanc 2014)
Jules Taylor is a winemaker in Marlborough, New Zealand. She launched her label in 2001 and has been making premium Sauvignon Blanc ever since. Currently at Vintages is Jules Taylor Sauvignon Blanc 2014. The wine is very pale in colour but don't let that fool you. The nose is intense gooseberry and cut grass. The flavour is like biting into a sweet gooseberry just out of the fridge. Tangy and tart with enough ripeness to fill the mouth. It costs $19.95 and would work wonders with goat's cheese or Caesar Salad. That's Jules Taylor Sauvignon Blanc 2014 from New Zealand. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680 NEWS. ($19.95, Vintages #224428)

Carpinus Dry Furmint 2013
In Hungary they use the Furmint grape to make the lusciously sweet Tokaji dessert wines. But they also make a very tasty dry version. Currently at Vintages is Carpinus Dry Furmint 2013. Pale straw in colour, it has an earthy bouquet of lemon sherbet with a leesy note. Medium-bodied and dry, it offers richly extracted peach flavour with a thread of minerality. Great value at $14.95 from Vintages outlets. Serve it with grilled tuna or with semi-soft cheeses like Havarti or Monterey Jack. That's Carpinus Dry Furmint 2013 from Hungary at Vintages outlets. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680 NEWS. ($14.95, Vintages #417865)
