St Kilda Chardonnay Southeastern Australia 2016 Product #32033 (In Stock)
St Kilda Chardonnay Southeastern Australia 2016 St Kilda Chardonnay Southeastern Australia 2016

St. Kilda Chardonnay pretty much exacly what you hope for (but don't often get) in a fine value Chardonnay: refreshing, fruit filled, and balanced.  Take a sniff and enjoy the aromas of ripe pineapple and golden delicious apple. Take a sip and enjoy those same ripe fruit flavors along with just a hint of oak, just enough to round out the flavors and add a hint of nutty complexity; just enough to make the wine really say “Chardonnay” and not “anonymous cheap white wine.”

It finishes fresh and mouthwateringly clean, with just a touch of juicy apple flavor lingering on your palate. If you’ve got a crowd descending on your house for a Mothers’ Day, graduation, or upcoming Fathers’ Day gathering, this is a wine to stock up on a case or two. You’ll have it to pull out any time you need something to serve at a party or just crack open at the end of a long day.

Vina Siegel Crucero Chardonnay 2016 Product #32397 (In Stock)
Vina Siegel Crucero Chardonnay 2016 Vina Siegel Crucero Chardonnay 2016

FALL FESTIVAL MIX/MATCH 2CS $7.49/EA

What a find!  Vina Siegel has delivered solid value from Chile's Colchagua Valley for years, but this 2016 Chardonnay under the super-value Crucero - "Crossroads" - label is the best we've tried yet. This is a rich, fruit-filled, Chardonnay with plenty of ripe orchard fruits, pineapple and mango aromas and flavors.  A short stay in oak adds vanilla, coconut and spice accents that add complexity to the richly textured mid-palate and length to the fruity vanilla finish. An exceptional value in rich, nicely oaked, and very smooth Chardonnay with plenty of fruit and a fresh, dry, finish.

Montebuena Rioja Cuvee KPF 2015 Product #32442 (In Stock)
Montebuena Rioja Cuvee KPF 2015 Montebuena Rioja Cuvee KPF 2015

FALL FESTIVAL MIX/MATCH 2CS $6.98/EA

The big 90 point rating from Vinous is the kind of praise you expect to find for a $15-$20 Rioja, which makes the everyday $11.99 price a pleasing surprise (and this week’s super $6.98 two-case deal a stunner).  But that’s the kind of value that Wine Enthusiast Importer and Master Sommelier Fran Kysela delivers on a daily basis.  Here, Fran works with Rioja’s Unión de Cosecheros of Labastida to select his own favorite batches – Cuvee KPF – just for the US market.  Unlike some other importers, Fran isn’t trying to create a super-charged, over-ripe, parody of Spanish wine built just to pick up critical points.  Instead, he’s delivered us a very fine, classically-styled, Rioja of nice restraint now and plenty of short-term cellar potential.  As IWC said of a previous release, “it's an excellent value for Rioja.”  Especially at these remarkable savings prices!

“Aged for three months in used American oak barrels. Vivid ruby. Bright, sharply focused aromas of fresh red fruits and flowers, along with a spicy overtone and a hint of vanilla. Lithe and appealingly sweet on the palate, offering vibrant, oak-spiced raspberry and cherry flavors and a subtle rose pastille nuance. Finishes supple and long, displaying silky, slow-building tannins and resonating spiciness.”  Vinous (Raynolds) 90 points

Ch Haut-Pasquet Bordeaux Blanc 2016 Product #32020 (In Stock)
Ch Haut-Pasquet Bordeaux Blanc 2016 Ch Haut-Pasquet Bordeaux Blanc 2016

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.

Ch La Roche St. Jean Blanc 2016 Product #32200 (In Stock)
Ch La Roche St. Jean Blanc 2016 Ch La Roche St. Jean Blanc 2016

A staff and customer favorite! This white Bordeaux 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 13.0% 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.

Palacio De Bornos Verdejo Rueda 2016 Product #32441 (In Stock)
Palacio De Bornos Verdejo Rueda 2016 Palacio De Bornos Verdejo Rueda 2016

FALL FESTIVAL MIX/MATCH 2CS $7.98/EA

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!

The newest release of this long-time customer and staff favorite 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.  And, this weekend, a crazy bargain at these super savings!

If you thought this was good in the past - WOW!  2016 is truly a great vintage across France, including for the 100% estate grown Picpoul de Pinet. 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, delicious, 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!

A very fine Pinot Grigio value to enjoy for casual sipping and pour at parties.  Offers up clean, fresh, aromas of apple and melon with a hint of honeysuckle.  The flavors follow the aromas and pick up a touch of pear and fresh flowers on the palate.  Enough weight that it will show well with light or casual food and a lemony, fresh, finish that's thirst-quenching and fun.  Enjoy!

Bodegas Ego Jumilla Fuerza 2013 Product #32155 (In Stock)
Bodegas Ego Jumilla Fuerza 2013 Bodegas Ego Jumilla Fuerza 2013

For years, Spain's baking hot, dry, high plains south of Madrid were known for Mourvedre reds that were - at best - full of roasted fruit with chewy finishes that would charitably be called "rustic."  It took an Australian - super-consultant Chris Ringland - working with the Gil family of Juan Gil to find a way to bring "modern" flash and polish to Jumilla.  At their Bodegas El Nido, Ringland and the Gil Family perfected the art of cutting hearty Monastrell with ripe Cabernet Sauvignon to create what quickly became the region's most highly rated bottlings.  Ringland went on to repeat the feat at Bodegas Volver (Triga in Alicante) and Bodegas Castano (Solanera in Yecla).

With Fuerza, Bodeags Ego takes the Ringland approach to selected lots of fruit from then 25 hectares of old-vine Monastrell.  Blending 75% Monastrell and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon and aging the young wine in 100% new American oak for 12 months creates a deep, dark, powerful with that’s loaded with blackberry, plum and blackcurrant fruit, layered with sweet wood spice and smoke, and finishes ultra-rich and smooth.  If that’s your kind of wine, then you will look long and hard to find a better example at prices like these!

"Cola, sassafras and clove notes frame a deep core of plum and currant fruit in this dense red. The texture is plush and polished, supported by well-integrated tannins and balsamic acidity. Monastrell and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now through 2020."Wine Spectator 90 points

Castello La Leccia Vivaio del Cavaliere Toscana Rosso 2015 Product #32021 (In Stock)
Castello La Leccia Vivaio del Cavaliere Toscana Rosso 2015 Castello La Leccia Vivaio del Cavaliere Toscana Rosso 2015

An estate dating from 1077 is going to have deep roots, but it's especially exciting when a strong sense of tradition gets paired with a touch of modern innovation. Owner/winegrower  Francesco Daddi has gone "back to the future" a bit by converting this prime estate near Castellina in Chianti to 100% organic farming and returning to the practice of blending Malvasia Nera with his Chianti Sangiovese.

Here he innovates by selecting small lots of what could be Chianti Classico, giving them a lighter extraction and then bottling 85% Sangiovese and 15% Malvasia with zero time in oak.  The result is a festive, fun, wine that's bursting with juicy black cherry, a hint of licorice root, and lots of floral complexity.  The structure is friendly - fresh and lightly tannic - inviting summer sipping with a light chill or warming it up and airing it out so more dark, spicy, fruit emerges to pair with pizza, pasta or richer foods.  Delicious stuff.

Bodegas Carrau Tannat De Reserva 2015 Bodegas Carrau Tannat De Reserva 2015

No one really knows why an obscure and - as the name suggests - often hard-edged grape from France's Southwest found it's perfect home in Uruguay.  But one taste of this perfect for picnicking  100% Tannat, should convince you that the grape can have some friendly style, too.  Ripe Tannat grapes grown on Urugay's coastal vineyards - where the climate and soils are pretty much identical to Bordeaux - gets a gentle fermentation and then 2 full years in neutral oak barrel to soften up and emerge ready to gulp.  Aromas and flavors feature fresh red berry and cherry fruit with a pretty dash of spice and very fine-grained tannins.  The fruit-filled, supple, finish and fresh mid-palate make this a great all around summer red with a chill and very enjoyable with richer foods, too.  If you enjoy Malbec from cooler slices of Argentina or juicy American red blends, then this is going to be a treat!

Yet ANOTHER great vintage for this value superstar. Past vintages have regularly earned 90 point ratings from the critics and the 2015 was a 92 point award winner from England's Decanter Magazine. The 2016 is just terrific. Aromas of peaches, green melon, apricot, and a hint of white flowers tempt you to take a sip. On the palate those ripe stone fruit flavors persist, but it finishes with a seltzery, saline minerality that makes it very dry and refreshing. This is a wine made for fresh seafood, but it’ll do just fine as a delicious aperitif and sings with salads, too!

Hands down, the best vintage of this stunning value single-vineyard Gruner to date!  There’s a refreshing salty brininess to the aromas here, along with fresh pear and meyer lemon. On the palate there’s a pleasing weightiness. That pear aroma takes on a lovely ripeness, and there’s a delicious ripe apple flavor as well, like biting into a fresh Honeycrisp. A refreshing, versatile white and great value.

If you enjoy the rich texture of barrel fermented Chardonnay but crave a bit of Sauvignon Blanc’s citrus fruit, cut, and refreshment during warm Summer months, this delicious, barrel aged, Viura is going to delight.  It's a simply delicious white Rioja that’s bursting with fresh lemon zest, apricot, and lime fruit around a core of lemon custard plus just a touch of exotic fresh coconut nuance.  Give it a little air, and notes of dried grapefruit, beeswax, and honeysuckle emerge on the nose and more citrus peel and spicy ginger come out on the palate and juicy, refreshing, finish.  Every vintage reviewed by Vinous has earned 90 or 91 points - and this is the best yet. Crazy complex and delicious for the price.

Anton Bauer Rose Feuersbrunn 2016 Anton Bauer Rose Feuersbrunn 2016

Two-time Austrian “Winemaker of the Year” Anton Bauer's Rosé Feuersbrunn (named for the Wagram town where it’s grown) has always been tasty but the 2016 edition reaches some very high heights indeed.  It looks even better with the pink label you’ll find here (vs. the black text on other export bottles), so we bought enough to get some labeled just for you and to bring the price down to rock-bottom levels, too!

Rosé Feuersbrunn 2016 starts with one of Austria’s own red grapes – Zweigelt – for bright fruit and then adds Austrian up-and-commers Merlot and Syrah for depth and complexity.  It’s a pretty, assertive, pink in the glass with bold aromas of ripe watermelon, fresh strawberry, summer flowers and just picked herb.  On the palate it’s broad and full of watermelon, strawberry and redcurrant fruit with lively accents of tangerine oil and lemon zest.  The flavors really fill your mouth with satisfaction before a lip-smacking, crisp, finish of cranberry, watermelon and herb pops and lingers on.  Definitely a delight right now, but hold onto a few bottles – it will be better still at Thanksgiving and next spring!

"Bright, medium-deep red. Expressive aromas of blackberry, dark chocolate and licorice; there's something Napa-like about the glossy torrefaction notes. Sweet, supple and nicely concentrated, with a pliant texture giving this wine plenty of early appeal. But the dark fruit flavors are nicely supported by substantial ripe, oak-influenced tannins. Delivers good stuffing for the price."   Vinous (Raynolds) 88 points
