680 NEWS wine reviews – November 25–27, 2016 

Alvear Solera 1927 Pedro Ximenez
There's a sweet wine released November 26th at Vintages from Spain's Montilla-Moriles region: it's Alvear Solera 1927 Pedro Ximenez. Perdo Ximenez is a grape variety and the solera in which it's produced was laid down in 1927. Every year, they take an amount of wine from the bottom row of barrels and top them up with wine from barrels above. This dessert wine is deep caramel colour with an olive green rim. It's got a nose of brown sugar and fig jam with a full-bodied flavour of sweet raisins and figs and balancing acidity. It costs $19.95 for a 375 mL bottle at Vintages outlets. Serve it as dessert or with sweet fruit pies. That's Alvear Solera 1927 Pedro Ximenez from Spain at Vintages. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680 NEWS. ($19.95, Vintages #463034) (94)

Montes Twins White Blend 2015
The Chilean winery Montes has a delightful white blend at the LCBO called Montes Twins White Blend selling for a bargain price of $11.95 It's a blend of Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Viognier. Pale straw in colour with grassy nose of grapefruit and green plum; it's light to medium-bodied and dry with spicy, apple and green pepper flavours. It works well with grilled fish or goat's cheese. That's Montes Twins White Blend 2015BO's general list. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680 NEWS. ($11.95, LCBO General list #440156) (88.5)
