(1) Weingut Dr. Loosen
-Wehlener Sonnenuhr, Mosel, Germany
-Vintage 2003 (DRINK NOW OR HOLD)
-PRICE: $35.00, approx. (currently
unavailable --- "Thanks, Dad!")
COMMENT: Though Not available at the L.C.B.O. at the present time, I ought to point out that any
vintage of this stuff tends to be excellent, so if you find it
somewhere else (such as in the U.S.), buy it! With great acidity, some
lemony fruit, and awesome elegance, this is a superb wine to open up on
an all-smiles special occasion.
PAIRING SUGGESTION: Chicken with curry --- enjoy!
(2) Henry of Pelham
-Sparkling wine ('Cuvée Catherine')
-L.C.B.O. PRICE: $30.15
COMMENT: For those few people who absolutely insist on having sparkling wine to observe any event, this sparkling rosé
from Henry of Pelham ought to do the trick. With light grapefruit notes
and fantastic toastiness, it tastes pretty much like a Champagne.
More importantly, at $30.15, it is an absolute steal!
PAIRING SUGGESTION: Salmon fillet --- enjoy!
