La Bastarda Bianco Toscana 2014 Product #30511 (In Stock)
La Bastarda Bianco Toscana 2014 La Bastarda Bianco Toscana 2014

As the whimsical label suggests, there's no reason to take this fresh and fruit-filled Trebbiano (70%) and Chardonnay blend too seriously.  Big, juicy, white peach, apricot, and lemon fruit sings out here with more zesty peach fruit and a touch of bitter almond on the finish.  A fine sipper and even better companion for trout, scampi or white fish. Very hard to beat at this price!

Ponga Sauvignon Blanc 2014 Ponga Sauvignon Blanc 2014

Allan Scott makes this cheerful (and cheap!) Sauvignon Blanc for a local distributor, and it's one of those unexpected winners that punch well above their weight.  Generous and fresh aromas of orange blossom, tangerine, and pink grapefruit lead to a zippy, crisp, mouthful of melon and citrus fruit with just a touch of fresh cut grass.  Fun and very tasty.

Les Vigneaux Chardonnay Pays D' Oc 2014 Product #29849 (In Stock)
Les Vigneaux Chardonnay Pays D' Oc 2014 Les Vigneaux Chardonnay Pays D' Oc 2014

This ripe and fresh no-oak Chardonnay comes from stony vineyards deep within the heart of France's Languedoc region, not far from the famed Mas de Daumass Gassac.  The vineyards lie in a valley northwest of Montpellier where warm sunshine promotes ripening and cool nighttime breezes from the Mediterranean help retain freshness and fruit flavors.

Fresh aromas of juicy pear, golden apple and a hints of peach and honeysuckle lead to a nice, generous, mouthful of fresh fruit, toasted nut, and honeysuckle.  The crisp, fruity, acids build from the middle to the back to give this a lip-smacking, mouthwatering, finish as pear, apple and floral notes linger nicely.  A fine all-around Chardonnay for fish, chicken, or simply sipping.

Steininger Gruner Veltliner Kamptal 2014 Product #29941 (In Stock)
Steininger Gruner Veltliner  Kamptal 2014 Steininger Gruner Veltliner  Kamptal 2014

Like its stablemate “Grand Grü,” which we feature every year around Thanksgiving, Karl and Brigitta Steininger’s all tank Kamptal Grüner has been a staff and customer favorite here for years.  Start with the wonderful, summery, aromatics of yellow peach, peach skin, and wet stone minerality that really jump out of the glass.  Then notice the ripe fruit flavors – peach puree, yellow pear, apricot and golden apple – framed with touches of baking spice, citrus zest, and river stone.  Finally, enjoy how the peach turns tangy and a touch of lime and green apple come out on the finish and make your mouth water and face break out into a smile.  All this flavor intensity in a wine that hovers comfortably around 13% abv and costs much, much, less than you’d expect.

Dom Bernier (Les Frères Couillaud) Chardonnay 2015 Product #30615 (In Stock)
Dom Bernier (Les Frères Couillaud) Chardonnay 2015 Dom Bernier (Les Frères Couillaud) Chardonnay 2015

The brothers Couillaud are among the most outstanding winegrowers of the western Loire Valley.  And while their Muscadet is terrific, it was this complex and distinctive Chardonnay that captured our attention.  The 2015 harvest yielded plump, ripe, Chardonnay fruit with plenty of heft and balancing acidity.  They fermented about 8% in barrel and the rest in concrete tanks, allowing all of the wine to go through malolactic fermentation.  The result is an amazingly rich, creamy, almost Meursault-like Chardonnay with the zesty cut and minerality of a top Chablis.  Honey, cream, chalk, and tart green apple aromas and flavors are delivered with nice energy and drive and linger on a long, mouthwatering, brilliantly complex finish.  A tad richer and deeper than the 2014, but just as pure and mineral and delicious.

Ch Haut-Pasquet Bordeaux Blanc 2015 Product #30677 (In Stock)

Back in the old days, pretty much all white Bordeaux was a blend of the region’s three complementary grapes:  Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, and Muscadelle.  As Loire Valley and New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc became more popular in the 1980s, Bordeaux growers began phasing out first Muscadelle (too hard to grow) and then Semillon (usually pulled up in favor of Cabernet and Merlot).  The resulting Sauvignon-dominant (or 100% Sauvignon) white Bordeauxs can be a lot of refreshing, pool-side, fun – but they lack more traditional wine’s complexity of flavors and mellow, food-friendly, textures.

So, finding a traditional blend like this one is a real treat, especially at this great value price.  Give it a swirl and you’ll find a classic white Bordeaux nose of lemon/tangerine fruit, grapefruit pith, a bit of fresh mown grass, and the note of wet wool that Semillon brings to Bordeaux.  With air, a note of passion fruit and crushed savory herb emerges.  It’s light to medium-bodied and very fresh and happy in the mouth with flavors of lemon drop, tangerine, crushed herb and passion fruit puree.  On the finish, the fresh lemon and lime zest character comes forward and you’ll notice your mouth watering as the lemon and herb flavors linger on.   A lovely wine for any shellfish and herb dish or for salads with goat cheese.

Palacio De Bornos Verdejo Rueda 2015 Product #30719 (In Stock)
Palacio De Bornos Verdejo Rueda 2015 Palacio De Bornos Verdejo Rueda 2015

Over the past decade in Spain, "Verdejo" has come to be synonymous with "clean, crisp, white wine."  Which is unexpected, since it's only been 20 years or so since the Sanz family launched this estate and led the transformation of Rueda from oxidized, sherry-like, wines to refreshing beauties like this one!

At its best, Verdejo is like a richer, less grapefruity, version of Sauvignon Blanc.  Here big aromas of tropical fruit, tangerine, lemongrass and lemon thyme lead to bold flavors of ripe citrus (tangerine, orange, lemon) with a touch of anise and fresh cut grass for interest.  It's smooth and vibrant on the palate with excellent length and a mouthwatering finish that leaves citrus, green melon, and peach skin flavors lingering nicely.  A refreshing white to just sip and even better with Spanish tapas, sushi, or even spicy Cajun shrimp.

Bulgariana Sauvignon Blanc Thracian Valley 2015 Product #30858 (In Stock)
Bulgariana Sauvignon Blanc Thracian Valley 2015 Bulgariana Sauvignon Blanc Thracian Valley 2015

Like Cabernet Sauvignon, the white Bordeaux grape Sauvignon Blanc thrives on the warm, sunny, Thracian plain in southern Bulgaria.  The climate here is a bit like what you’ll find in some parts of California, and this fruit-filled Sauvignon Blanc bares more than a passing resemblance to a good Russian River example. 

The aromas are generous and inviting, with wide open notes of peach, melon, and citrus blossom.  It’s round and plump on the palate, with juicy pineapple, tropical fruit, and lemon/lime citrus flavors with just a hint of something grassy or herbal.  There’s enough acidity to give the wine shape and help it finish clean and dry in a soft, mellow, style.  A fun back deck or poolside sipper with an easygoing personality and a fine match for shrimp, summer salads, and more.

Ch La Roche St. Jean Blanc 2014 Product #29625 (In Stock)
Ch La Roche St. Jean Blanc 2014 Ch La Roche St. Jean Blanc 2014

The 2014 edition of this customer and staff favorite Sauvignon Blanc starts with aromas of just-squeezed lemon and fresh cut grass. On the palate, there’s a nice, juicy hit of riper Meyer lemon that comes in, and the whole thing finishes mouthwateringly clean. While many white Bordeaux are blended with Semillon and Muscadelle to add waxy weight or fruitiness, Ch La Roche St Jean is 100% Sauvignon Blanc. There’s no oak to hide all that tangy fruit, and it’s a very reasonable 12.5% alcohol. If you’ve shied away from New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc because of its over-the-top grapefruitiness or overwhelming, pungent passionfruit flavors, this is the perfect SB for you.

Cadastres Picpoul De Pinet 2014 Product #29734 (In Stock)
Cadastres Picpoul De Pinet 2014 Cadastres Picpoul De Pinet 2014

This 100% estate grown Picpoul de Pinet clearly demonstrates just how under-rated this variety is. You’ll find pretty aromas of white flowers, lemon/lime citrus, and anise/fennel notes to start.  Then a crisp, minerally, texture with tart granny smith apple, green melon, and lemon/lime flavors and a clean, dry, finish.  This is just a great all-around daily white, with enough flavor and body to shine by itself at a party and enough complexity and depth to pair well with freshwater fish and lighter poultry dishes.  Tremendous value!

Riebeek Cellars Sauvignon Blanc 2015 Product #30438 (In Stock)
Riebeek Cellars Sauvignon Blanc 2015 Riebeek Cellars Sauvignon Blanc 2015

From the windswept hills of South Africa’s Swartland region, here’s a fantastic Sauvignon Blanc for folks who enjoy this refreshing varietal’s snap and zing, but don’t want to get overwhelmed by grapefruit and grass.  Riebeek Cellars was established in 1941, making it an “old” estate for this part of South Africa, and the style here seems a little “Old World” too, marrying nice ripeness with a little restraint and class.

The 2015 Sauvignon Blanc is certainly a winner, with big aromas and flavors of fresh peach, green melon, just cut apple, and juicy lemon/lime acidity.  We love how its more than mouthwatering and refreshing enough to slake your thirst on a hot afternoon, but also mellow and easygoing enough to delight for glass after glass.  Robert Parker called the last vintage "A real winner" (89 points) and Wine Spectator made the 2012 a "Best Buy."  The 2015 is at least that good.  A screaming value.

Quinta Da Raza Vinho Verde 2015 Product #30829 (In Stock)
Quinta Da Raza Vinho Verde 2015 Quinta Da Raza Vinho Verde 2015

As Wine Advocate says, a delicious summer white with the lightest prickle on the tongue and a dry, crisp, finish.

"The 2015 Raza is a 50/35 blend of Arinto and Azal, with 15% Trajadura, unoaked and coming in at 11.5% alcohol. With 7.3 grams per liter of residual sugar, it is not austere, but the acidity is high enough to make it perceptibly dry. Beautifully focused, crisp and transparent, this is certainly one of the best yet for this label, with fine solidity, plenty of power and a fresh, lively feel. Not at all fizzy, it finishes with a wave of nice fruit as it airs out, too. This is the type of wine that should be drunk young for best results. Dive in. It will be glorious this summer."Wine Advocate 87 points

Conde Villar Vinho Verde 2015 Product #30886 (In Stock)
Conde Villar Vinho Verde 2015 Conde Villar Vinho Verde 2015

A classic spin on Portugal's "green wine" from Quintas Das Arcas in Portugal’s northwest corner.  It’s made from three traditional grapes - 40% Loureiro, 30% Trajadura, and 30% Arinto.  The high percentage of Loureiro gives the first hint of the quality here:  Lourerio is the hardest to grow of the three and gives the wine a boost in aromatic complexity.

The 2015 is Vinho Verde at its vibrant, youthful, best.  The Loureiro in the blend delivers a burst of intensely fresh citrus and green pear, lime zest and floral aromas.  A touch frothy on the palate with layers of lime, passionfruit, apricot, and green pineapple fruit flavors and a nice dose of seltzer-like minerality.  A perfect wine to sip on its own on a warm, late-summer, night or to enjoy with shellfish, salads, or grilled veggies.

Paul D Grüner 2014 offers just a little bit more of everything you love in a summertime white, including 33% more wine in the party-friendly 1.0 liter bottle.  Twist the top off, pour a cold glass, and as the condensation forms you’ll be rewarded with refreshing aromas of green apple, fresh peach, and orange-tinged citrus.  Take a good mouthful – no need to just sip at this price! – and you’ll love how the ripe apple, pear, and pineapple fruit gets lifted across your palate by a faint accent of spicy ginger.  Swallow and feel your mouth water as the clean, fresh, stone and orchard fruit flavors just get fresher from lingering notes of lemon and lime.  We could give you a list of food matches here more than long enough to fill the empty 1.0 liter bottle, but that’s hardly the point.  Refreshing, delicious, and priced to share with a crowd, this could just be your ultimate party and refrigerator white.!

Catena Chardonnay Mendoza 2013 375ml Product #30013 (In Stock)
Catena Chardonnay Mendoza 2013 375ml Catena Chardonnay Mendoza 2013 375ml

Half Bottle  Always a delicious value, the 2013 Catena Chardonnay may just be the best ever.  A blend of oaked and tank-aged wine, it crackles with fantastic fresh apple, pear, peach and pineapple fruit framed by notes of crushed mint and toasted hazlenut.  The vivid fruit pumps on through the juicy finish where Burgundy-like minerality and creamy toast notes linger.  Fantastic stuff.

"The Catena 2013 Chardonnay mixes grapes form Agrelo (15%) and the rest from different zones in the Uco Valley (Tupungato and San Carlos, Eugenio Bustos and Altamira). 50% of the wine fermented in used oak barriques, 10% in new 500-liter French oak barrels and the rest in stainless steel. Part of the barrels go through malolactic fermentation, but not all. 2013 feels ripe despite the character of the vintage, and although the oak is a lot less noticeable than in previous vintages it provides creaminess that makes it approachable and easy. The palate is soft and the acidity is quite integrated with the fruit. An approachable, nice Chardonnay."Wine Advocate 90 points

McManis Chardonnay 2014 McManis Chardonnay 2014

From the seldom seen River Junction AVA (in California's Central Valley), this happy Chardonnay delivers pure, unadulterated, fun. Big aromas of pineapple, peach, and yellow apple fruit with a charming touch of mint. Then a bit of oaky vanilla to go with grilled pineapple and pear fruit and a good squirt of apple-like acidity for freshness on the back. A touch of vanilla comes up on the back where salty caramel and fruit flavors linger. A fine sipper/party Chard and a very fine value. If you want to impress your friends, tell them this earned a gold medal and 96 point score at the 2015 Los Angeles International Wine Competition. If you want to really impress them, though, just give 'em a sip.
