680 NEWS wine reviews – November 17–19, 2017 

Hacienda Valvarés 2012
Today's recommendation is a Tempranillo from Spain's Rioja region: Hacienda Valvarés 2012 is dense purple in colour with a spicy, high-toned nose of red plums and a cedary note. Medium-bodied and dry on the palate, it's firmly structured with plum and red berry flavours carried on lively acidity to a firm tannic finish. It costs $18.95 at Vintages outlets and works well with roast meat dishes, especially lamb. That's Hacienda Valvarés 2012 from Spain. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680 NEWS. ($18.95, Vintages #423509) (89)

Jean-Luc Colombo Les Collines de Laure 2015
Méditérranée is a geographical appellation covering wines made in a large area on the southeast coast of France, roughly corresponding to the Provence wine region, as well as a part of the Rhône Valley. From the Rhone end comes a delicious white wine – Jean-Luc Colombo Les Collines de Laure 2015. A blend of Viognier and Sauvignon Blanc and Rolle (aka Vermentino), it's bright straw in color with a nose of peaches and pine needles; medium to full-bodied, its dry and richly extracted with flavours of peach and citrus fruit. It costs $19.95 at Vintages outlets. Serve it with Caesar Salad or cold chicken. That's Jean-Luc Colombo Les Collines de Laure 2015 from France at Vintages. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680 NEWS. ($19.95, Vintages #512533) (89)
