680 NEWS wine reviews – October 13–15, 2017 

Brancott Marlborough Sauvignon 2016
If, like me, you're a fan of Sauvignon Blanc, you're going to like Brancott Marlborough Sauvignon 2016 from New Zealand. Straw-coloured, this refreshing wine has a nose of rhubarb and grapefruit. Medium-bodied and dry, flavours of tart gooseberry and lime fill the palate and linger for an unconscionably long time. It costs $15.95 at the LCBO. Serve it with seafood or fish dishes. Or with goat's cheese. That's Brancott Marlborough Sauvignon 2016 from New Zealand. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680 NEWS. ($15.95, LCBO #499707) (88.5)

Cave Spring Cabernet Franc 2015
Of all the Bordeaux varieties grown in Ontario, Cabernet Franc is the most reliable and consistent vintage to vintage. On the LCBO's general list is Cave Spring Cabernet Franc 2015 – one of the best vintages of the 2000s. Dense purple in colour, it shows a cedary, black fruit nose with a minty note, elevated with vanilla oak; medium-bodied and dry, it's an elegant, polished wine with plum and currant flavours with lively acidity and good balanced. It costs $17.95 a bottle. A wine for lamb or beef. That's Cave Spring Cabernet Franc 2015 from Niagara. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680 NEWS. ($17.95, LCBO #523001) (89)
