Lingenfelder Bird Label Riesling 2013   

Pfalz Q.B.A., Germany

Magnificent for the price point! Floral with fleshy ripe peach yet airy and refreshing. Medium-bodied with a peach blossom finish. Slight sweetness lends food versatility, yet it's not at all cloying. Pair with fresh seafood.

Gilmour Orus Chardonnay Riesling Pinot Grigio 2012   

Ontario V.Q.A., Canada

Although this wine has been made for the hockey great Doug Gilmour, it's no "enforcer" type blend. Rather it's delicate and floral, as if Doug were inspired by a night at Swam Lake rather than Hockey Night in Canada. White nettles and grapefruit zest make this a good aperitif or companion to seafood. No need to leave this in the cellar or penalty box. Enjoy now.
