Riebeek Cellars Chardonnay 2013 Product #28488 (In Stock)
Riebeek Cellars Chardonnay 2013 Riebeek Cellars Chardonnay 2013

Here’s a fantastic Chardonnay for summer sipping.  It’s a mouthful of pure Chardonnay fruit – apple, pineapple, lime, lemon, and peach – unmarred by excessive alcohol (under 13.5%) or excessive oak (none at all!).  Brisk and bright on entry, creamy and nicely round in the middle, and then wonderfully fresh and clean on the zesty, mouthwatering, finish.  A fine fun bottle of Chard for poolside and back deck enjoyment (or even a big party in the Fall!).

“Riebeek Cellars, located on the western coast of the Cape Province of South Africa, was established over 70 years ago. These wines are meant to be consumed early in life, and therefore the focus is on unmanipulated, unadulterated, straightforward, abundant fruit. The 2013 Chardonnay is more reminiscent of a New Zealand Chardonnay than most from South Africa. Its offers a combination of lemon/lime notes intermixed with hints of honey and white peaches, medium body and an unoaked style. Enjoy it over the next year.”Wine Advocate 86 points

“This is direct, with green almond, pear skin and green apple notes that lead to a quick, fresh finish.”Wine Spectator 86 points

Riebeek Cellars Sauvignon Blanc 2014 Product #28774 (In Stock)
Riebeek Cellars Sauvignon Blanc 2014 Riebeek Cellars Sauvignon Blanc 2014

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 2014 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 2014 is at least that good, and a screaming value, too.

Mars And Venus Chardonnay 2013 Product #28542 (In Stock)
Mars And Venus Chardonnay 2013 Mars And Venus Chardonnay 2013

A very nice value Chardonnay that comfortably over-delivers vs. its modest price tag. No oak here, just bushels of clean, crisp, Chardonnay apple and stone fruit with a hint of caramelized pineapple.  Juicy and clean, this is a mid-weight white that's just perfect for parties or weeknight sipping.

De Angelis Falerio Doc Bianco 2012 Product #27161 (In Stock)
De Angelis Falerio Doc Bianco 2012 De Angelis Falerio Doc Bianco 2012

The Falerio DOC sits at the southern end of Marche, on Italy's Adriatic coast just East of Umbria.  The relatively new DOC was created in 1975 to promote the region's two best white wine grapes-Passerina and Pecorino-while continuing to allow use of the ubiquitous Trebbiano. 

This 2012 Falerio is a fresh, young, wine with all of the refreshing, spritzy qualities of the 2011, but with an extra notch of richness.  The aromas are like sniffing limes and peaches at the beach-plenty of green and orchard fruit aromas with a saline note of the sea in the background.  On the palate, there's loads of ripe, creamy peach and nectarine fruit with a spritz of key lime juice and seltzer followed by a chalky, salty, mineral-driven, finish.  There's a lot of creamy richness here that will please fans of unoaked Chardonnays, but the zesty acidity and mineral element make this super fresh and mouthwatering.  Brilliant with a garlicky scampi and seafood but pretty darn fun to just drink at a party or with friends over antipasti.  Staggering value.

MAN Family Wines Warrelwind Sauvignon Blanc 2013 Product #27578 (In Stock)
MAN Family Wines Warrelwind Sauvignon Blanc 2013 MAN Family Wines Warrelwind Sauvignon Blanc 2013

The brothers-in-law who make MAN wines grow most of the Sauvignon Blanc for this wine in high-altitude vineyards of the Agter-Paarl sub-region of South Africa’s Stellenbosch.  Strong winds blow through the vineyards most every day, leading to the name “Warrelwind” (or Whirlwind in English).  And there’s certainly a Warrelwind of aroma and flavor in this delicious South African Sauvignon Blanc!

Big, fruity, aromas of red grapefruit, berry, and green apple jump from the glass with just the right touch of Sauvignon’s signature fresh cut grass for complexity.  The flavors are wildly complex – Ruby Red grapefruit, green apple, honeydew melon, and a touch of something tropical take center stage with savory accents of lime peel and fresh grass.  A touch of Semillon (10%) and regular lees stirring gives this a bit of extra body and rounds off Sauvignon’s rough edges, but the finish is juicy, mouthwatering, and fresh.  A good deal more sophistication and complexity than you’d expect for this fine value price!

“I tasted excellent wines from MAN Family Wines… This winery has some fabulous values and should be high on the shopping lists of frugal consumers. The 2013 Sauvignon Blanc displays a classic varietal character of freshly mowed grass, melon and grapefruit notes in an authoritative, crisp, fresh, light-bodied, naked style. Drink it over the next year.”Wine Advocate 87 points

Val De Salis Viognier 2013 Product #28362 (In Stock)
Val De Salis Viognier 2013 Val De Salis Viognier 2013


The kind of wine that we hope for out of the South of France - a delicious value that way over-delivers on its modest price.  Here's a ripe, friendly, bottle of Viognier that delivers straight ahead peach, orange and honeysuckle aromas and flavors, a creamy texture, and just a dash of mineral on the finish.  A nice interplay between sweet, ripe, fruit and tangy acid at the end.

Terre Scaligere Pinot Grigio 2013 Product #28540 (In Stock)
Terre Scaligere Pinot Grigio 2013 Terre Scaligere Pinot Grigio 2013

This Pinot Grigio from Italy's Veneto region really delivers for summer refreshment.  Aromas of Meyer lemon, ripe pears, and white flowers entice you to take a sip.  On the palate, there's enough richness to stand up to food, but it finishes snappy and clean, with those juicy pear flavors continuing on the finish.  A great value!

Martinez Lacuesta Blanco Rioja 2013 Product #28545 (In Stock)
Martinez Lacuesta Blanco Rioja 2013 Martinez Lacuesta Blanco Rioja 2013

This is 100% Viura grown in selected sites across Rioja. The ripe grapes are pressed and the juice goes into all new barrels - a mixture of French and American oak and acacia - to ferment and rest for 3 months. After that, the wine moves into stainless steel to complete its maturation, retaining freshness and verve to go along with the light oak influence.

Give it a sniff, and you'll be rewarded with pretty springtime aromas of peach, pineapple, and almond blossom. Take a sip and you'll discover a round, creamy, textured wine that's bursting with zesty fruit and juicy acids. After you swallow, you'll notice the fresh flavors lingering nicely as a hint of honey and bitter almond emerge at the end. Almost too easy to drink by itself for refreshment and fun, you'll love how this enhances warm weather favorites like fresh fish, grilled mushrooms, or marinated chicken.

Alois Lageder Pinot Grigio Dolomite 2012 375 Ml Alois Lageder Pinot Grigio Dolomite 2012 375 Ml

As always, this is a classic Pinot Grigio from the foothills of Italy's Dolomite mountains.  Rich aromas of peach and pear with an herbal accent.  In the mouth, broad, rich, and packed with orchard fruits and a dash of citrus that turns juicy on the clean, fresh, finish.  A richer style of Pinot Grigio that's as fun to sip solo as it is to pare with rich fish or cheese.

Lismore Range Chardonnay 2013 Product #28208 (In Stock)
Lismore Range Chardonnay 2013 Lismore Range Chardonnay 2013

AVERY QUINN CHARDONNAY FANS! Believe it or not, we've found a dead ringer for the very popular Avery Quin Chardonnay, with only two main differences:  1) it's from Australia; and, 2) it's an even better deal!  A California-based "negotiant" took advantage of the ripe 2013 harvest in Australia to purchase beautifully ripe Chardonnay and have it aged 5 months in French oak barrels.  Then - to keep costs down - it's shipped to the USA in an airtight bladder and bottled in California.

Leaving that all aside, it's flat out delicious.  Juicy apple and pear fruit take center stage with accents of spice, salty caramel, and just a touch of butter.  Rich and creamy, but with air it gets a bit more juicy with crisp apple livening the finish, but the pear, caramel, toasted nut, and hint of butter keep pumping through from first sip to last. A stunning value in a great everyday Chardonnay for parties, sipping, or most any food.

Ch La Roche St. Jean Blanc 2013 Product #28251 (In Stock)
Ch La Roche St. Jean Blanc 2013 Ch La Roche St. Jean Blanc 2013

2013 will be difficult for red Bordeaux, but the dry whites (like this one) excelled with that perfect blend of ripe fruit and vigorous, juicy, acids.  The 2013 edition of our best-selling Bordeaux Blanc ever delivers on the promise of the vintage.  It opens with its usual generous scents of white pineapple, honeysuckle, and orange zest.  The 100% Sauvignon Blanc fruit delivers more of the same on the palate plus a bit of firm green melon, tangerine, and a bite of citrus pith and oil.  A tad more elegant and fresh than the 2012, it's even more a great all-purpose white for parties, salads, fish, or just sipping on a warm afternoon.

Val De Salis Chardonnay Pays d'Oc 2013 Product #28457 (In Stock)
Val De Salis Chardonnay Pays d'Oc 2013 Val De Salis Chardonnay Pays d'Oc 2013

The Gau family is unusual for Languedoc growers – they make only “single varietal” wines rather than the field blends of Grenache, Carignan, Cinsault and Syrah common all around them.  This 100% Chardonnay thrives in the rocky soils and warm climate here, and delivers lovely aromas of ripe pear and apple with pretty floral accents.  The flavors start crisp and refreshing and get even better with a little air, with sweet Bosc pear, peach and apricot flavors gaining complexity from the barest hint of caramel and mineral.  No oak here to interfere with the fruit, and we suspect a little Viognier has snuck into the Chardonnay vines, giving this much more perfume and peach than normally found this far south.  A luscious mouthful of wine with a crisp, clean, finish that will delight at a party and make you think of springtime when sipped on its own.

Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro

The gang at Alto Adige's Kelleri Kaltern winery just keep pumping out great value wines, but the new "K" series may be the best deals yet. It's a blend of wonderfully ripe Pinot Bianco, Chardonnay, and Sauvignon Blanc that explodes from the glass with aromas of citrus, apple, peach, green melon, and exotic spice.  In the mouth it's fresh and bright with flavors of crunchy green melon, white peach, papaya and more lemon/lime citrus.  Easy drinking, refreshing, wine that finishes with a nice little tangy kick and pulls you back for more.

Conde Villar Vinho Verde 2013 Product #28525 (In Stock)
Conde Villar Vinho Verde 2013 Conde Villar Vinho Verde 2013

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 2012 Vinho Verde at its vibrant, youthful, best.  The Loureiro in the blend delivers a burst of intensely fresh citrus and green pear fruit, lime skin, and floral aromas.  Take a sip and you’ll discover more citrus fruit, wet stones, and a touch of yeasty freshness.  The finish is bright, crisp, and dry with lingering mineral/yeast and lime notes.  A perfect wine to sip on its own on a warm, late-summer, night or to enjoy with shellfish, salads, or grilled veggies.

Cadastres Picpoul De Pinet 2013 Cadastres Picpoul De Pinet 2013

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!

Le Souchais (Les Frères Couillaud) Chardonnay 2012 Product #27452 (In Stock)
Le Souchais (Les Frères Couillaud) Chardonnay 2012 Le Souchais (Les Frères Couillaud) Chardonnay 2012

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.  Rain, hail, and wind cut the Chardonnay harvest by about 40% in 2012, giving the Couillauds unusually concentrated, powerful, fruit.  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 super energy and drive and linger on a long, mouthwatering, brilliantly complex finish.  This will be fantastic with rich seafood dishes and fresh cheeses.

Definitely the best vintage yet for this always popular DOC Verdicchio in the traditional curvy bottle. Really bursts with dried lemon, pink grapefruit, Granny Smith apple fruit made even better by a nice dose of stony minerality and a dash of fresh herb. It glides across your palate like silk then finishes brisk and clean and fresh.  Great wine for seafood and salads or just to sip. Under-priced for the quality.

Bodegas Monteviejo Festivo Torrontes 2012 Bodegas Monteviejo Festivo Torrontes 2012

A delicious, exotic, and wild Torrontes that somehow retains enough focus and control to work with food, too. It's a bit like a cross between Muscat (exotic fruit and floral notes) and Gewurztraminer (ginger and warm spice) with loads of peach and mango at the core.  Lovely sweetness to the fruit flavors and fine acidity to balance the lite residual sugar at the end.  Exciting stuff!
