When in Niagara…


Add to my recommendations of April 9.

Cattail Creek 09 Riesling $15.95
Delish fruitiness and force ten refreshment. Excellent Niagara Riesling.

Colaneri 09 Sauvignon Blanc ‘Fumaso Biano’
Amazing flavour concentration and richness due to partial drying of the grapes. Sunset on the patio sipper.

Coyote’s Run 10 Pinot Gris ‘Red Paw’ $17.95
Lively, lovely summer sipper.

Hillebrand 08 Trius Grand Red $55.20
A Bordeaux blend with the elegance and charm of Pinot Noir. Delicious NOW. Do not cellar!

Inniskillin 09 Pinot Noir ‘Winemakers Series’ $19.95
Light, fruity, spicy Pinot for BBQ’d white meats.

Jackson-Triggs 06 Sparkling Brut ‘Entourage’
Austere, elegant Champagne styling for a fraction of the price. Smart new label too. I’m stocking up.

Lailey 10 Sauvignon Blanc $20
Lighthearted Savy with a “˜let’s be happy’ feeling. Gorgeous summer party drink.

Peller Estates 10 Rosé ‘Private Reserve’ $17.15
Seriously dry, earthy Rosé. Best with food.

Pondview 10 Pinot Grigio ‘Dragon Fly‘ $18.15
Wonderful freshness, delicate flavours and way better than Santa Margarita.

Ravine 08 Meritage $24.95
Light, lively and a lovely edition of the Bordeaux blend. Very gulpable, very bistro-ish.

Reif 09 Shiraz/Pinot Noir ‘The Magician’ $19.95
Made with kiln-dried grapes. Slightly sweet, concentrated and great with a platter of sticky ribs.

Southbrook 07 Cabernet/Merlot ‘Triomphe’ $22.95
Gutsy, rustic and very Old World. Food wine.

Stonechurch 09 White ‘Quintet’ $20.15
Multi-grape blend that hits all the pleasure points. Excellent summer sipper.

Stratus 09 White ‘Wildass’ $19.95
Stratus 08 Red ‘Wildass’ $19.95
White drinks like an upscale Pinot Grigio. Good with everything. Red is rustic with an amazing range of flavours. Very bistro-ish, very good.
