Viewpointe Pinot Grigio 2006

An astoundingly popular varietal, this wine is less austere than many PGs. It displays enjoyable fruity tones of fresh, ripe honeydew melon, smoky pear and a hint of apple on a crisp finish. Enjoyed it at Allens Restaurant on Danforth in Toronto. My favourite English Pub.

Chateau Grand Picque-Caillou – Bordeaux Rouge, 2005

($20)  RATING: 90.

A charming Bordeaux with fruity, earthy and subtle spicy aromas. A very nice nose. A light wine with nuances of black and red berries, subtle cherries, raisins and vanilla. Many of the aromas continue in the flavours with additional notes of ultra ripe strawberries. Light tannins. Smooth finish. It’s a round wine. Delicate, lively and easy to enjoy. Joe called it “An elegant silky seductress!” 60% cabernet sauvignon, 10% cabernet franc, 30% merlot. Not oak-aged.

Sauvignon Blanc from Southern Austria

Wohlmuth Sauvignon Blanc: one of the finest in the world.

I just hosted Gerhard Wohlmuth Jr on his first trip to Canada.  We visited potential restaurant clients and set up distribution in Ontario.  The attraction to me is that these wines are exceptionally clean and elegant.  They will be an excellent addition to the North American market.  Ontario agent: http://www.carriagetradewines.com/
