Best Value, Wine Spectator
“Fresh and balanced, with a creamy bead supporting apple puree, pastry cream, anise and preserved lemon notes.”

Judges Choice, Best Value Winner, InterVin International Wine Awards
“This year’s competition was a strong showing for Cava, with three serious contenders making it to the final. Segura Viudas’ classic Brut bottling wine the day with its lively mousse, crisp character and refreshing finish. Ranked as a Best Value Winner, the stunning quality for the price makes this ideal for entertaining or everyday enjoyment”.

90 Points, Gord Stimmell, Toronto Star
“Very Champagne-like aromas and flavours, with roast hazelnuts, apple, biscuits and lime elements showing richness. Food suggestion: Spanish tapas.”

89 Points, David Lawrason, Winealign.com
“...continues as one of the best buys in sparkling wine – and it has been for years!”

4 Stars, Winecurrent
“If looking for a sparkling wine with some elegant characteristics of Champagne, this is it. Great value, stock up and keep a few bottles on hand.”

88 Points, Steve Thurlow, WineAlign
“This is my favourite LCBO bubbly under $15, great for receptions as an aperitif; essentially anywhere you would consider Champagne, since many will not be able to tell the difference. ”

88 Points, Wine Enthusiast, Michael Schachner
#45 on the Top 100 Best Buys of 2012 “Fruity, fresh and easy to like from start to finish, this is what a Best Buy should be.”

88 Points, Wine Access
“The sparkling wine opened most frequently at my house has been Segura Viudas Brut...Keeps coming back for: being great value, traditional method bubbly.”

drinkup – NOW Toronto, Sarah Parniak
NNN – Palate Pleaser
“Why When it comes to sparkling wine, Cava is a steal (a statement that can be extended to Spanish wine in general). Dry, thirst-quenching and approachable without being basic, Segura Viudas should be everyone's old faithful”.

4/5 Stars, Vines Magazine
“An InterVin Gold Medal and Best Value winner, this stylish sparkling is clean, crisp and bright, with aromas of lemon/lime citrus and green apple. The palate is marked by fine bubbles and tangy flavours of pink grapefruit, lime and a faint petrol note. A terrific value that over-delivers for the price, try this bubbly with ceviche, grilled chicken or seared scallops.”

“What a great price for this well made very drinkable shiraz. Expect aromas of red and black cherry fruit with spicy and herbal tones and a hint of tobacco. It is on the light side of midweight with the black cherry fruit well balanced by lemony acidity. Very good length. A good everyday wine to have on hand at this price”. - Steve Thurlow

“Better than the best apple pie you’ve tasted (except your mother’s). Better because one modest glass carries only about half the calories of a pie slice. Plus, no baking required. Sweet and rich and long in the crisp finish, this golden, honeyed nectar, with well-tuned acidity, was pressed from frozen apples, riffing on the technique used to produce Canada’s famed icewine”.

87 Points, Steve's Top 50 Value Picks 20 Under $20 at the LCBO, Wine Align - Steve Thurlow
“This is a good well priced basic Grigio and though simple it is quite flavourful and very easy to drink. Expect aromas of apple pear fruit with some floral and nutty notes. It is midweight with a slight spritz adding to its freshness. It finishes cleanly and firmly with a lemony acidity tone to the apple fruit. Well balanced and quite zippy with very good length. Great as an aperitif it will also work with cheese and mildly flavoured white meats”.

87 Points, Beppi Crosariol, The Globe and Mail
“Crisp, light-bodied and bursting with flavour, this zesty, grassy white comes across like a grapefruit orchard on a golf course – a wine for Canadians with dreams of wintering in Florida. Try it with oysters, goat cheese or salads”.

The Wanted Zin Zinfandel 2013 IGT Puglia, Italy
LCBO #416487  
$13.95

 

2014 Vintage

87 Points, Beppi Crosariol, The Globe and Mail
“The label looks like a poster that would be nailed to a tree in the Wild West, complete with the description “Carefully Matured in American Oak.” Zinfandel may be America’s heritage wine grape, but guess what? This red comes from Italy, specifically the southern region of Puglia, where zinfandel normally goes by a less popular synonym, “Primitivo.” Attractive for the price, this is smooth, full-bodied and accessible, with plump stewed fruit, blueberry and raisin flavours on a rounded, sweet core infused with baking spices and toasted coconut”.

“This garnacha (grenache) based rosé from Spain’s Navarra region delivers more weight than many rosés, and it shows excellent balance, as the solid and quite concentrated fruit plays off the clean, fresh acidity. Drink it with charcuterie, poultry, and pork”.

90 Points, Jane Staples, nataliemaclean.com
“A wonderful rich full-bodied red blend from northern Spain, with all the complex nuances of leather, spice and tobacco from the Tempranillo, dark berry flavours from the Cab Sauv and velvety smooth mouthfeel from the Merlot. A winner with beef, game and stews. Aged for at least 18 months in oak, with further evolution in bottle”.

“Wonderfully aromatic with Mediterranean herbs, a touch of spice and notes of blackberry and bramble”.

“Smoky and very hearty flavours and aromas of black cherry, licorice, vanilla bean and herbs with a whiff of violets and cedar”.

 88 Points – ‘A Bargain’ – Beppi Crosariol, The Globe and Mail
“The pretty retro label employs typefaces that hark back to the heyday of the French-bistro aesthetic. And this is the sort of humble and very sound red one might associate with Hemingway washing down steak frites at La Closerie des Lilas. Medium-bodied and crisp, it delivers a classic southern Rhône profile in a balanced, harmonious package, juicy with cherry-currant fruit and lively with black pepper. A bargain”.

3-1/2 stars, Ben MacPhee-Sigurdson, Winnipeg Free Press
“A Syrah-Mourvèdre red blend from the Minervois region -- located in southern France near the Mediterranean Sea -- the Gourgazaud has a bit of funkiness on the nose. Along with the ripe cherry and raspberry notes, there are hints of leather, barnyard, smoke and plum in there as well. It's a medium-plus bodied red, with ripe cherry, smoke, pepper, plum and grilled-meat flavours on the palate, and just a bit of tannin that provides a slightly mouth-drying grip. Drink with some grilled meat, naturally”.

“This Riesling from Alsace is made in a dry style, but not as astringently dry as many, and that makes it good sipping on its own, as well as friendly to food. Look for well-defined flavours and crisp acidity, and enjoy it with seafood, smoked salmon, white fish, and poultry”.

“Perfumed aromas of floral notes, peach and citrus herald an off-dry surge of honeyed white nectarine and crisp green apple juxtaposed to a tangy line of lemon curd and lime cordial. The sweet and tang are just the yin and yang required to pour well with spicy Asian cuisine. It also sips well solo”.

“This is a lovely, off-dry, and nicely priced Ontario riesling. The fruit is solid from start to finish, with the light sweetness well balanced by the clean, crisp acidity. This is a natural for spicy pork, seafood, or vegetarian dishes”. - Peter Hum, Ottawa Citizen

"Über-fruity aromas of fresh-pressed grapes mingle with fennel and wisps or dark fruitcake spice. It’s light on its feet racing over the palate with piquant spice, tangy red currant and passion fruit to the fore. Pour with pasta in tomato sauce, wings, tacos or enchiladas”.

“The limestone-soiled Rueda region northwest of Madrid produces this sprightly white made with Verdejo grapes. The nose shows grapefruit, lime, white pepper and passion fruit. It’s light-bodied and a natural pairing for ceviche, but drinks just as well on its own”.

88 Points, Top Value Wine at the LCBO, Steve Thurlow, WineAlign.com
"This is a pure fresh crisp white with an aromatic nose of grapefruit, passion fruit, white pepper with some honey notes. Since it is lively and juicy with very good length and is so refreshing, it is a great selection for seafood and mildly flavoured white meats".
