Tony Aspler's wine pick of the week: Mike Weir Estate Winery Riesling 2008

I’m not usually a fan of wine that bears the name of a celebrity, sporting or otherwise. But this one won the gold medal at this year’s Ontario Wine Awards in the off-dry Riesling category. It has flavours of honeyed lime and cantaloupe,with refreshing acidity. It will make you think twice about Riesling. Food match: aperitif wine, smoked fish (Vintages # 229286).

Post City Magazines’ wine columnist, Tony Aspler, has written 14 books on wine and food. Tony also created the Ontario Wine Awards. He can be heard on 680News.
