Values Wine Picks July 20, 2010

Note: I publish batches of reviews that I call Good Values Wine Picks. These are from the regular section of the liquor store rather than the Vintages section, and tend to be lower priced and the most widely available of all wines. The last four reviews I did were: November 15, October 16, August 3 and June 18.

White Wine

Thirty Bench Wine Makers Riesling 2009, V.Q.A, Beamsville Bench, Ontario, Canada: Lovely pure lines of green apple and white peach aromas. Zippy, mouth-watering and refreshing.
