Top 5 Summer Wines - As seen on Canada AM

2006 Sauvignon Blanc - Wild Horse Canyon
This wine – a blend of Sauvignon Blanc grapes from British Columbia, Washington and California - is light, crisp and refreshing. Sauvignon Blanc is perfect for summer sipping, and make sure to always serve chilled. Be sure to try Jackson-Triggs Niagara 2007 Sauvignon Blanc as well!

2006 Reserve Riesling - Henry of Pelham - VQA Niagara

One of Niagara’s signature grapes is Rieslings - in large part due to the climate and limestone soils - and this is of our favourites. Rieslings have great acidity to match with salads, and also have a little bit more body to them if you're looking for a wine to not only match with food, but to please many palates. Serve chilled.
Vineland, Peller, Cave Spring and Chateau Des Charmes - just to name a few - also make fantastic rieslings.

2007 Trius White - VQA Niagara

This wine is a unique blend of Gewürztraminer, Pinot Gris, Riesling, and Chardonnay. The Trius White is fresh and light like the previous whites, but has a nice floral aroma with a lemon-lime zesty flavour profile. Premium white wine blends are part of a growing trend in Niagara and it’s for good reason – Be sure to also try the Stratus “White” and Flat Rock “Twisted.” Again, serve chilled.
Look for Flat Rock's "Red Twisted" as well, it's dynamite!

2007 Peller Estates Rosé - VQA Niagara

Roses are often overlooked or thought of as being sweet because of their pink colour; however Niagara rosés – like this one- are typically dry. This wine has all you would ever want from a rose. Nice berry fruit flavours, such as strawberries and cherries, with a touch of tannin and beautiful colour. It’s also a great food & bbq wine. Serve chilled.

2005 Merlot - Jackson-Triggs - VQA Okanagan

This Merlot is medium-bodied, smooth and not too rich or bold. Merlot’s hints of chocolate and spice flavours, compliment any pork, chicken or rib dish and BBQ foods. This wine will certainly sooth those craving a nice red. Decant for 30 minutes+
