Rémy Pannier Rosé d’Anjou 2017
This hot weather makes rosé the go-to wine for the patio or outdoor dining. You can’t go wrong with Rémy Pannier Rosé d’Anjou 2017 from the Loire Valley. Pale pink in colour with a bluish tint, the wine has a nose of pomegranate and red currants. Its medium-bodied, dry, pomegranate flavour is carried on lemony acidity with just a touch of residual sugar on the finish. Until Sunday it’s been reduced by a dollar to $14.95. Chill it well and serve it with charcuterie or cold chicken. That’s Rémy Pannier Rosé d’Anjou 2017 from France on the LCBO’s general list. For Post City Magazines, I’m Tony Aspler, 680 NEWS. ($14.95, LCBO #12641)

Tina Pfaffmann T. No. 9 Riesling Trocken 2016
I find that a glass of dry Riesling is very refreshing on a hot summer’s day. Here’s a wine from Germany’s Pfalz region, currently at Vintages outlets, that really fills the bill: Weingut Tina Pfaffmann T. No. 9 Riesling Trocken 2016. (Trocken is German for dry.) Pale straw colour with a hint of lime, it offers a minerally, green peach nose overlaid with a note of honey; light to medium-bodied, dry, with floral, green apple and green melon flavours; a beautifully balanced wine. It costs $19.95, Serve it with ham quiche. That’s Weingut Tina Pfaffmann T, No.9 Riesling Trocken 2016 from Germany at Vintages outlets. For Post City Magazines, I’m Tony Aspler, 680 NEWS. ($19.95, Vintages #549774)
