2016 Mönchhof Ürziger Würzgarten Riesling Kabinett Mosel
This is my “step away from my Riesling” face. Prickly lemon/lime on the nose with even a hint of salinity and minerality. Off-dry on the palate with apple, peach, lemon, and slate notes. This is an über classic Riesling – off-dry with slate notes and racy acidity. Rawr.
Here are my top wine picks from Sept. 29 LCBO VINTAGES Release. Wines from 4 famed producers + Riesling featured. Many other great buys too! https://goo.gl/cEtovD
2016 Mario Schiopetto Pinot Grigio Collio
This is kind of a hot Pinot Greege at 15%. Pear, lemon, apple, Asian pear, and white spice on the nose. More Asian pears on the palate with lemon, apple, and even a hint of orange.
Collio (Friuli-Venezia), ITALY
Sipping local tonight with 2014 Closson Chase Vineyard Chardonnay (90+ pts) from Prince Edward County. Maturing, but still drinking well. Full review:

2016 Cucao CH Reserva Chardonnay
Taking it easy with some Chilean Chardonnay. Lemon, lime, pineapple, and maybe a hint of lemon crème on the nose. Limes dominate the palate with lemon, pineapple, and guava notes. Simple. Straightforward.
Colchagua Valley, CHILE

2016 Domaine Sainte Anne Entre-Deux-Mers
Lounging with this white Bordeaux from the first organic vineyard in the Bordeaux region! Meyer lemon, exotic fruit like dragon fruit and underripe mango, and peaches on the nose. Similar on the palate with a hint of minerality and even seashell on the palate.
Sauvignon Blanc, Sémillon
Entre-Deux-Mers (Bordeaux), FRANCE
