680 NEWS wine reviews – April 7–9, 2017 

Boeckel Gewurztraminer 2015
Gewurztraminer is rather like cilantro – you either love it or hate it. Well, I happen to love both and even together. Newly listed at Vintages is Boeckel Gewurztraminer 2015 from the region where the great Gewurztraminers come from – Alsace. Bright straw in colour, the wine has the quintessential aromatic bouquet of the grape – lychee and rosewater. Full-bodied and off-dry, this Gewurz is round on the palate with mouth-filling lychee and sweet grapefruit flavours. It costs $17.95 at Vintage outlets. Perfect with Asian food or the best match I ever had – with Muenster cheese. That's Boeckel Gewurztraminer 2015 from Alsace at Vintages. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680 NEWS. ($17. 95, Vintages #469700) (89)

Terrasse Pavée Séguret Côtes du Rhône-Villages 2015
Séguret is one of the 20 named villages in the Côtes du Rhône-Villages appellation and currently at Vintages is a great example – Terrasse Pavée Séguret Côtes du Rhône-Villages 2015. Deep purple-ruby in colour, this full-bodied blend of Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvèdre has a cedary nose of blackberries and dried herbs. It's dry and well-extracted with a savoury flavour of black fruits with lively acidity and a firm tannic finish. It costs $17.95. Try it with spicy sausages or hearty red meat dishes. That's Terrasse Pavée Séguret Côtes du Rhône-Villages 2015 from France. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680 NEWS. ($17.95, Vintages #481325) (89)
