Available at the LCBO:

 
VINTAGES#: 991562, $19.95 SHOP »»
Sourced from the heart of the Auxerre district, this Burgundian bubbly displays attractive apple and citrus, with a delicate toast tone. Crisp and refreshing, a great pairing with seafood.
"This is a pale gold, fairly mature Crémant with a rather sharp nose of brioche, hazelnut and dried pear-apple fruit. It is mid-weight, fairly tart and quite intense and aggressive on the palate with a subtle rounding sweetness and a touch of caramel. Nutty bitterness and lemon come to the finish. The length is excellent." Score: 90 Pts. - David Lawrason, Wine Align, November 30, 2018.


La Chablisienne Les Vénérables Vieilles Vignes Chablis 2016
VINTAGES#: 215525, $27.95 SHOP »»
Coming from vines that are over 35 years old, La Chablisienne Les Vénérables remains true to Chablis’ iconic style: dry, with intense minerality and acidity, bright fruit, and strong aging potential. Fourteen months on the lees, in tank and barrel.
Old vines (vieilles vignes) produce less fruit, so the wines are more concentrated and flavourful. This classic, steely Chablis features aromas of sweet apple, mineral and citrus. Ideal with grilled white fish, as well as oysters on the half shell.


L'Orangeraie Rosé Pays D'OC 2019
LCBO#: 279661, $12.35  SHOP »»
Salmon pink colour; soft floral, raspberry, strawberry and citrus aromas with a mineral note; medium body, dry; berry and citrus flavours, moderate acidity and a clean finish. Serve as an apéritif, or with lighter fare.

Hugh Hamilton The Floozie Sangiovese Rosé 2019
VINTAGES#: 558106, $18.95  SHOP »»
Hugh Hamilton is a fifth-generation winemaker and a bit of a maverick. He crafts Shiraz and Cabernet wines, of course, but he also makes wines from the likes of Tempranillo, the Georgian grape Saperavi, and Sangiovese. This rosé is 100% Sangiovese, and you can expect a floral wine with upfront red fruit and delicately framed herbs in support. Perfect with seafood.
"Rosé made from Sangiovese in McLaren Vale. You don’t get that everyday and the label supports the whimsy. In the glass is delicious rosé, just tart, sour and salty enough to balance red berries and notable tang." Score: 89 Pts - Michael Godel, Wine Align. Tasted June 2020.


🍾De Chanceny Cremant De Loire Rosé Brut
LCBO#: 211466, $20.90 SHOP »»
Pale salmon colour with fine bubbles; lifted aromas of red fruit, plum, toast and raspberry/strawberry mix; extra dry, medium bodied, with zesty flavours of red plum, red berries and a hint of toast. Serve with brie and prosciutto, smoked salmon, or fresh berries.
VINTAGES#: 375097, $17.95  SHOP »»
For lovers of Sherry or for those looking to try the style, this is a great opportunity. It's a tremendous value that has a honeyed sensibility, great balance and suggestions of clove, nuts and toffee. Chill and serve as an apéritif.

Bodegas Muga Reserva 2016 (Rioja)
VINTAGES#: 177345, $26.95 SHOP »»
"This has the Muga style and the imprint of the cool and fresh 2016 vintage, one of the best vintages of recent years. [...] It has a mixture of red and black fruit with sweet spices that are very integrated and in harmony. The palate is silky and clean, and the tannins are round and gentle…" Score: 93 Pts. - Luis Gutiérrez, robertparker.com, June 2019.
Serve alongside rotisserie chicken with roasted potatoes, or duck confit.


Nuiton-Beaunoy Le Prieuré Hautes Côtes de Nuits 2018 (Pinot Noir)
VINTAGES#: 18146, $26.95 SHOP »»
Hautes Côtes de Nuits is a subregion of Burgundy situated close to the main Côte d'Or escarpment. It's known as a source of great buys for the shrewd wine lover. Look for tangy red fruit, earthy notes and stony mineral in this wine. Serve with roast beef and root veggies.

Juniper Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2014
VINTAGES#: 16855, $46.95 SHOP »»
"Mark Messenger aims to craft fine, elegant Cabernet Sauvignon, and it helps that the Wilyabrup vineyard has some decent vine age -—planted in 1973. It forms 88% of the blend with Petit Verdot, Malbec and Merlot doing their bit for more complexity. Regional flavours of mulberries, currants, cassis, florals and eucalyptus are perfectly pitched to the cedary and integrated oak, flowing through to the medium-full-bodied palate where the poised tannins await." Drink by 2034. Special Value. Score: 96 Pts. - Jane Faulkner, winecompanion.com.au, August 1, 2018.

Southbrook Canadian Framboise
VINTAGES#: 341024, $19.95 SHOP »»
"This sweetly concentrated raspberry wine continues to be a consumer favourite with its deliciously sensuous texture, authentic flavour profile and a bright and vibrant finish. Nicely balanced, a great match for ripe, runny cheeses." Score: 90 Pts. - Sara d'Amato, winealign.com, January 13, 2020.
