Tony Aspler’s Weekly Wine Pick: a dry, full-bodied white from California


Published:

You’re more likely to find this style of wine in Northern Italy or Alsace — a dry Muscat. Straw coloured, the wine has a gorgeous perfume of freshly crushed grapes and cardamom with tangerine notes. Full-bodied and rich on the palate, it has the immediate suggestion of sweetness but finishes with a linger, dry flavour.

Food match: Asian dishes

 

Uvaggio Moscato Secco 2010, California. $19.95, Vintages #297515

Undiscovered Eats: Move over Parkdale, Gerrard East is the new cool foodie ’hood

Much like Parkdale, Gerrard and Jones has a bit of an unsavoury history. Pre-reno, the Maple Leaf Tavern was the mother of all dive bars. Not exactly what one wants as the keystone to a neighbourhood. But its recent reno (which took a cool three years) has helped energize the area, transforming it from rough-around-the-edges to foodie magnet and helping to act as bait for those looking for a place to set up roots.
