Easter Saturday Tasting

We have two beverages for you to taste this Easter Saturday: Chateau Ste. Michelle Riesling 2009 ($15.95) and Molson Canadian 67 Sublime (12 bottles $22.25).

The Riesling is from Washington State and was rated 89 points and Best Value by Wine Spectator.  It was featured this week in the Calgary Herald as a recommended Easter wine:

Chateau Ste. Michelle Riesling, 2009 (Columbia Valley, Wash.)

The first winery to establish Washington as a viticultural region, Chateau Ste. Michelle is still creating reliable wines, often at value-oriented prices. This semi-dry sipper offers tasty peachy-lime-citrus flavours, and it has just enough sweetness to cut through salty dishes such as ham and Asian takeout.

Drink: Now, by itself or with ham, Indian, Vietnamese, Thai or Chinese takeout. Serve chilled. Screw cap closure.

Molson Canadian 67 Sublime arrived in Alberta this week.  It’s being touted as a premium light beer with a hint of refreshing lemon-lime flavour and only 67 calories per bottle.  Apparently it’s the beer you drink when you wouldn’t usually choose beer.  Hmmm, let us know what you think…
