WINES OF THE WEEK

Windsor Star - - WEEKEND REVIEW -

16 Mile Cel­lar Rebel 2014 Pinot Noir Un­fil­tered Ni­a­gara Penin­sula

★★★★ $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

★★★1/2 $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.
