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.

Bedouet Clos Des Grands Primos Muscadet Sevre Et Maine 2014 Product #29638 (In Stock)
Bedouet Clos Des Grands Primos Muscadet Sevre Et Maine  2014 Bedouet Clos Des Grands Primos Muscadet Sevre Et Maine  2014

Having converted his Clos des Grand Primos vineyard to certified organic farming, Michel Bedouet is delivering on Muscadet’s potential.  The vineyard is a rocky mess of granite, schist and gneiss - no fun to farm, but wonderful for Muscadet's Melon de Bourgogne grape.  The 2014 delivers all the saline minerality and chiseled cut you'd expect from fine Muscade, but also a generous roundness to the texture and a plenty of ripe apple and tangy lemon-lime fruit. You’ll taste the benefits of extended aging on the lees – spent yeast cells left after fermentation – in the wine’s wet stone and chalk minerality, but love how the fresh fruit holds center stage and pumps on through a long finish of lemon, apple, lime zest and fresh thyme.  Sure, it’s a great wine for shellfish, but you’ll love it with almost any summertime dish or simply all on its own.

Steininger Gruner Veltliner Grunschnabel 2014 Product #29781 (In Stock)
Steininger Gruner Veltliner  Grunschnabel 2014 Steininger Gruner Veltliner  Grunschnabel 2014

The Steininger family call this wine “Grünschnabel” – literally a young duck (a “green beak”) but better understood as “whipper-snapper” or “newbie”  - because it’s the first wine bottled and released each year, just in time for summer refreshment.  Grown in sites dotted across Kaptal – perhaps Austria’s best Grüner Veltliner region – fermented and raised in cool stainless steel, it’s bottled and released young and fresh.

An early summer release, but one full of late summer aromas and flavors:  ripe peach, spicy pear, and Ginger Gold apple fruit accented by dashes off fresh sugar snap pea, fresh ginger, white pepper, and a tangy/herbal dash of Meyer lemon.  It smells and tastes great, and feels even better on your palate.  The wine enters with a bright, snappy, tingle and then drapes flavor and refreshment over your palate like a pretty summer tablecloth falls across a picnic table.  Then, the lemony acid pops out to scrub everything clean, leaving behind clean, refreshing, notes of snap pea, Granny Smith apple, white pepper, and a hint of wet river stone.  A wine that will cool you off, make you smile, and pull you back for another sip – or thirst-quenching gulp!

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.

Dom Montmarin Viognier 2013 Product #29522 (In Stock)
Dom Montmarin Viognier 2013 Dom Montmarin Viognier 2013

This Languedoc Viognier screams springtime.  Made without any oak to obscure its varietal character, this Viognier has plenty of fresh peach and tangerine flavors, and those signature floral aromas that make Viognier so enticing.  Despite all the ripe flavors, it has enough acidity to finish clean and make your mouth water.  Perfect for chicken salad or melon and prosciutto.

Fondo Antico I Versi Bianco 2014 Product #29582 (In Stock)
Fondo Antico I Versi Bianco 2014 Fondo Antico I Versi Bianco 2014

Equal parts Grecanico, Inzolia and Grillo from Sicily, this delivers the richness you'd expect from warm Sicily with plenty of citrusy acidity to keep things fresh.  Delivers loads of pineapple, peach, pear and apple fruit with a big squirt of lemony acids and a touch of seashell minerality.  The texture is creamy and round, with no hard edges, but the real story here is the juicy fresh fruit and zesty finish.  A fine alternative to both Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc!

Bodegas Monteviejo Festivo Torrontes 2013 Product #29704 (In Stock)
Bodegas Monteviejo Festivo Torrontes 2013 Bodegas Monteviejo Festivo Torrontes 2013

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!

Here's a versatile and delicious California Chardonnay built to satisfy a crowd - and you!  Ripe, creamy, and fresh, the aromas and flavors feature juicy apple, pineapple, peach, citrus, and salty caramel. Mostly made in stainless steel for brightness and fruit, the 15% aged in oak delivers just a hint of smoke to complement the buttery notes on the back.  Lots of lees stirring gives it a creamy, round, mouthfeel and the juicy apple and sweet butter caramel flavors linger nicely on the fresh finish. A fine party or everyday Chardonnay and outstanding value.

Anton Bauer Gruner Veltliner Gmork 2013 Product #28636 (In Stock)
Anton Bauer Gruner Veltliner Gmork 2013 Anton Bauer Gruner Veltliner Gmork 2013

The Gmörk vineyard lies on loess and gravel soils in Austria’s excellent Wagram region.  There’s plenty of sunny warmth in this South-facing site, so the fruit ripens beautifully.  But the nearby Danube river channels cool air down from the Northwest, slowing the growing cycle and letting the grapes develop extra flavor and aroma while retaining fine freshness and acidity.  Anton has all the grapes harvested by hand at the peak of ripeness, even taking on the extra cost of making multiple passes through the vineyard when necessary.  It’s hard work and the kind of expense you rarely see in a Grüner intended to sell for under $20.

The 2013 Gmörk is the best release we’ve tasted so far (we’ve sold every vintage since 2008), delivering an extra notch of fresh fruit, a good helping of lime zest, and fine, bracing, minerality.  While it was a touch fleshier and less vivicous than the 2013, the Washington Post’s three-star review of the 2009 seems spot on:  “This delightful wine offers a fine example of what wine lovers call minerality: subtle flavors of lime zest with a hint of peach and nuances of talc and stone. It conjures an image of vine roots stretching through rocky soil, reaching for the essence of the earth.  Three Stars.”

Palazzone Dubini Bianco 2013 Product #28739 (In Stock)
Palazzone Dubini Bianco 2013 Palazzone Dubini Bianco 2013

Here's a stunning value for anyone who loves Italian white wines - or just wants a juicy, crisp, and really tasting white wine at a great price.  The wine is made by Palazzone, the estate Steve Tanzer called, "“Unquestionably the number one small estate of Orvieto.”  Made from the younger vines that would otherwise goin into the estate's Orvieto, this is a beautiful, lively white from Umbria. Green apple, lime and watermelon flavours with a zesty mid palate. Great on its own, with salads or fish.

Ponga Sauvignon Blanc 2013 Ponga Sauvignon Blanc 2013

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.

Moulin De Gassac Guilhem Blanc 2013 Product #29312 (In Stock)
Moulin De Gassac Guilhem Blanc 2013 Moulin De Gassac Guilhem Blanc 2013

About 50% Grenache Blanc provides the base for Guilhem Blanc.  While it doesn’t have a lot of flavor on its own, white Grenache provides body and richness to the blend and a hint of something nutty or waxy on the nose and palate, too. Add in 25% Sauvignon Blanc, grown in cooler sites and harvested fairly early to give the wine a dose of fresh citrus fruit, aromas of fresh herb, and – in this warm climate – a touch of ripe peach and apricot.  Then – in part to help save old vines that would otherwise be ripped up – finish with a dose of 25% Terret Blanc.  One of the oldest grape varieties in Languedoc (and, until the 1960s, the most widely planted), Terret has the great virtue of retaining high acidty and lower alcohol even in the hot Sud sun.  Here it gives the wine a lift of freshness and lemony acidity plus a subtle note of fresh flowers.  The final blend is medium-bodied, mouthwatering, and full of peach, apricot, lemon, and floral aromas and flavors.  Delicious stuff and a great match for baked fish or soft cheese.

Santa Barbara Verdicchio 2014 Santa Barbara Verdicchio 2014

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.

A touch of cracked pepper and gingery spice add interest and make your mouth water right on through an unusually long and satisfying finish for Vinho Verde.  A delicoius, light (11%), summer white from the Loureiro grape that's perfectly built to take a bit of the sizzle out of hot summer days.

What a roll these guys are on!  Several vintages of 90-point scores from Wine Enthusiast and bragging rights as the best-selling under-$20 Pinot Grigio in the store.  The 2013 is a little crisper than the 2012, but just as delicious as ever.

Once again, it's a Pinot Grigio for folks who like actual flavor in their crisp, refreshing, whites.  As in the past, lovely aromas and flavors of ripe pear, crisp apple, peach, and tangerine here with an extra layer of complexity from notes of melon, blanched almond, and a lovely floral element.  A tad richer and fuller than in the past, but just as mouthwatering and salty-mineral on the juicy, fresh, finish.  Just lovely, great value, stuff.

The name - Mmm - pretty much says it all here.  This is crackling, pure, Loire Valley Sauvignon Blanc in a Pouilly Fuisse style (but at a very nice VDP price).  Loads of flinty mineral aromas and flavors over white grapefruit and lemon fruit that build in intensity towards the finish.  The white grapefruit, lime, and gunflint flavors really pop on the long, mouthwatering, finish.  Take a sip:  Mmm is what you'll say!

Lucashof Riesling Pfalz Qba 2013 Lucashof Riesling Pfalz Qba 2013

Love the slogan here:  Riesling ist Riesling.  That straight ahead philosophy is on display in this straight ahead Riesling value.  Crisp, focused, acids underpin peach, apricot, and lime fruit with a salty/seltzery slate note keeping everything connected to the Pfalz's steep, stony, slopes.  Off-dry rather than sweet, in the middle and crisp on the finish. Great to sip or with spicy foods.
