680 NEWS wine reviews – January 15–17, 2016 

Alamos Torrontes 2015
Think of the Torrontes grape as Argentina's dry Muscat. In fact it's a crossing of the local Mission grape and Muscat of Alexandria. Just released at Vintages is Alamos Torrontes 2015. The flavour literally leaps out of the glass as lychee and rose petals with melon notes. You'd expect it to be sweet but it's dry with a lively acidic spine. It costs $14.95 and is an ideal aperitif wine or served with spicy Thai or Japanese cuisine. That's Alamos Torrontes 2015 from Argentina at Vintages outlets. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680 NEWS. ($14.95, Vintages #81539)

Château Saint-Antoine Réserve du Château 2010
2010 was an excellent vintage in Bordeaux and even the lesser wines show well. A case in point is Château Saint-Antoine Réserve du Château 2010, a very tasty claret that sells at Vintages for $14.95. Deep ruby in colour, it offers a cedary, blackcurrant nose backed by spicy oak. Medium-bodied and dry, the wine is well balanced and firm. It will also reward cellaring for a few years. Try it with lamb dishes. That's Château Saint-Antoine Réserve du Château 2010 from France at Vintages outlets. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680 NEWS. ($14.95, Vintages #434464)
