WINES OF THE WEEK
16 Mile Cellar Rebel 2014 Pinot
$22.95 (Vintages# 520783)
Niagara boutique winery 16 Mile Cellar is fast building a sterling reputation for artisanal wines that offer great value for the price. Hand-picked fruit gets the royal treatment from grapes to glass to yield a fragrant and satisfying medium-bodied Pinot Noir, with a pretty core of red fruit and earthy notes.
Aveleda Alvarinho 2017
Vinho Regional Minho, Portugal
$14.95 (Vintages# 610295)
Aveleda’s fresh and fragrant Vinho Verde ($11.45, Vintages# 5322) has long been one of the best value white wines at the LCBO. This single vineyard selection is made with the alvarinho grape, which delivers attractive citrusy and floral aromas and flavours. It’s fresh and crisp — pretty much a perfect aperitif or partner for fish or shellfish entrees.
