LCBO Food & Drink Early Summer 2024


Leyda Reserva Sauvignon Blanc LCBO 36815, $16.95 Cooler and less arid than many Chilean regions, the Leyda Valley is perfect for Sauvi gnon Blanc. With the intensity to shine alfresco, the Reserva braids citrus and orange notes with a typically grassy character. Clean, bright acidity cuts through the richness of barbecued foods, acting like a squeeze of lemon on grilled fish or chicken, or a tangy seafood salad. Talk about gilding the lily! Baileys takes its classic Irish cream and adds the flavours of toasted marshmallows, graham crackers and chocolate, transporting you to a summer night with old friends sitting around a camp fire. Serve it chilled or on the rocks, or add a shot to a mug of hot coffee and let the ghost stories and tall tales begin. The Stump Jump Grenache Shiraz Mourvèdre LCBO 173294, $15.95 A superb choice for burgers and meats off the grill, this Rhône-style blend of Grenache, Shiraz and Mourvèdre comes from McLaren Vale in South Australia, where D’Arenberg farms old bush vines organically and biodynam ically. Look for rich, dry intensity and a medley of black and red fruit flavours with plenty of earthy, herbal notes and a long finish. Mill St. Block Party Mix Pack LCBO 38524, 6 pk, $21.95 A mix pack lets everyone choose what they want. This one features three tried‑and‑trusted Mill St. favourites—Original Organic Lager, Tankhouse Organic Pale Ale and 100th Meridian Organic Amber Lager— and three new brews—District Wheat Beer (in a Belgian wit style), Haze Phaze IPA and Pineapple Lime Sour. All in all, a guaran teed conversation starter! Fresh air calls for forthright flavours. Up at the cottage, at your favourite campsite or simply overseeing a backyard barbecue, you know that what people are drinking matters just as much as what they eat. Here’s how to be prepared. Baileys S’mores LCBO 27692, $34.95
