680 NEWS wine reviews – January 29–31, 2016 

Fred Loimer Lois Grüner Veltliner 2013
Austria's Grüner Veltliner grape makes one of the most food-friendly white wines. Currently at Vintages outlets is Fred Loimer Lois Grüner Veltliner 2013, a wine that is pale straw in colour with an intriguing bouquet of white pepper and white peach and a thread of minerality. It's medium-bodied, crisply dry and elegant. It costs $17.95. An ideal wine for most fish and seafood dishes. That's Fred Loimer Lois Grüner Veltliner 2013 from Austria at Vintages. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680 NEWS. ($17.95, Vintages #422717)

Domaine de Grand Retour Plan de Dieu Côtes du Rhône-Villages 2013
One of the best value red wines in the current Vintages release has one of the longest names – Domaine de Grand Retour Plan de Dieu Côtes du Rhône-Villages 2013. At $14.95 a bottle it's purple-black in colour with a spicy plum, herb-tinged nose and an engaging floral note. Full-bodied and dry, you can taste that floral note above the black fruit flavours. Serve it with steak or spicy winter stews. That's Domaine de Grand Retour Plan de Dieu Côtes du Rhône-Villages 2013 from France at Vintages. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680 NEWS. ($14.95, Vintages #224592)
