680 NEWS wine reviews – October 27–29, 2017 

Kilian Hunn Pinot Noir 2014
Kilian Hunn is a winemaker in Germany's Baden region who makes a Pinot Noir that you could mistake for a red Burgundy. Released October 28 at Vintages is Kilian Hunn Pinot Noir 2014. Mature ruby in colour, the wine has a spicy plum nose lifted with a floral note; medium-bodied and dry, flavours of plum and cherry with well-integrated oak fill the palate. Beautifully balanced and very Burgundian in style, it's a great bargain at $18.95 a bottle. Serve it with duck breast or roast chicken. That's Kilian Hunn Pinot Noir from Germany at Vintages outlets. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680 NEWS. ($18.95, Vintages #523985) (90)

Beronia Rioja Tempranillo Elaboracion Especial 2015
Today's selection is a Tempranillo from Spain's Rioja Region – at a reduced price. Beronia Rioja Tempranillo Elaboracion Especial 2015 is deep ruby in colour. Aromas of red berries and cherries rise from the glass, with notes of vanilla oak and the forest floor; on the palate the wine is medium-bodied, dry with lively acidity and ripe, fine-grained tannins; flavours of cherry melded with the spicy vanilla oak fill the palate. It's currently on a limited time offer for $13.95 until November 5th, then it returns to $16.95. Try it with barbecued pork or chorizo sausage. That's Beronia Rioja Tempranillo Elaboracion Especial 2015 from Spain at the LCBO. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680 NEWS.  ($13.95, LCBO #426981) (88.5)
