Moulin De Gassac Guilhem Rose 2016 Product #31771 (In Stock)
Moulin De Gassac Guilhem Rose 2016 Moulin De Gassac Guilhem Rose 2016

Our first 2016 rosé is a winner!  It’s equal parts Syrah and Carignan, grown and harvested fresh just for rosé.  After a few hours of fermentation, the juice is pressed off the black grape skins, giving it a just-right amount of color and structure while allowing the juice to retain all of its natural freshness and vibrancy.
 
As soon as you see this in your glass, you know you’re in for a treat.  It’s a beautifully transparent salmon pink that almost sparkles in sunshine.  Aromas of fresh picked strawberries and crushed red fruits – raspberries and cherries – get a lift from floral accents and a hint of citrus rind.  In the mouth, it’s bright and crisp with loads of berry fruit and just a touch of mineral, showcasing the short 2016 vintage’s silky texture and ripe fruit.  The acids come up on the finish and make your mouth water, leaving you looking for a little bite to eat or another refreshing sip.  Drink this on its own anytime you like, or pair it with anything from smoked salmon to fruited chicken salad.  “Berry” delicious!

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.

Dom De La Bastide Cotes Du Rhone Rose 2016 Product #32008 (In Stock)
Dom De La Bastide Cotes Du Rhone Rose 2016 Dom De La Bastide Cotes Du Rhone Rose 2016

Here’s the bottom line:  if you love great Provençal rosé, then you’re going to flip for this wine and struggle to believe how inexpensive it is.  In what’s shaping up to be the finest French rosé vintage of at least the past decade, Baside’s Cotes du Rhone Rosé competes with some of the finest wines of the vintage on quality and simply crushes even average bottlings on price.

We’ve come to really love the simple, clean, approach Vincent and Stephanie Boyer bring to growing and making wine.  They farm family vineyards in and around Vissan, a cooler slice of the Southern Rhone not far from the foothills of the Alps.  They grow their grapes organically, keep yields low, and do as little as possible in the winery to allow the quality of their fruit to shine through in your glass.  The 2016 Rose is 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah, and 10% Cinsault and 100% delicious.  Huge aromas of strawberry, peach, watermelon, cherry and dusty herb really explode from your glass.  Then those mid-summer fruit flavors fill every nook and cranny of your mouth with extra lift from notes of citrus zest, more herb, and watermelon rind pickle – sweet, sour and spicy.  The finish is chalky, mouthwatering and dry, pulling you back for sip after sip.

Lora Verdejo Sauvignon Blanc 2016 Product #32016 (In Stock)
Lora Verdejo Sauvignon Blanc 2016 Lora Verdejo Sauvignon Blanc 2016

What makes a perfect Spring/Summer party/back deck/casual entertaining white wine?  It seems to us that it should be fresh, crisp and refreshing – if you’re getting hot, it should cool you off.  It should have good body and weight so it can be enjoyed with treats like fresh seafood, grilled chicken or even hot dogs.  But, it should also have the zestiness and herbal complexity to be a perfect companion to fresh green salads.  And, in a perfect world, it should be at least a little distinctive so it stands out from the ocean of grocery store Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Grigio out there – but without standing out too far on price.

This is that wine!  It’s made from certified organic fruit grown by young Rioja winemaker Miguel Merino Navajas in vineyards located in the far East of La Mancha – where the hills begin to rise to mountains and cool air pours down nightly to preserve freshness.  Spain’s Verdejo grape gives this a nice dose of tangerine juice, orange zest, and good body.  Sauvignon Blanc provides a burst of refreshing white grapefruit, a touch of lime, and just a refreshing dusting of fresh grass.   As the winemaker says, “Perfect to drink with Tapas, salads and vegetable dishes, all kinds of pasta, mild cheeses and exotic cuisine. It also goes great with fish, seafood, grilled meats or just a glass on its own.”

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.

A right down the middle, very clean, traditional warm weather thirst quencher!

Cadastres Picpoul De Pinet 2016 Product #32101 (In Stock)
Cadastres Picpoul De Pinet 2016 Cadastres Picpoul De Pinet 2016

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 great poolside and party value!

Dom De La Bastide Cotes Du Rhone Blanc 2016 Product #31866 (In Stock)
Dom De La Bastide Cotes Du Rhone Blanc 2016 Dom De La Bastide Cotes Du Rhone Blanc 2016

Domaine de la Bastide’s vineyards are near the village of Visan in the far northern reaches of the Cotes du Rhone appellation and within sight of the hills that define the eastern edge of the Rhone Valley.  While there’s still plenty of sunshine and mid-day heat here, the nights cool off more quickly than further south making the limestone soils exceptionally well suited to fresh, delicious, whites.

This is a blend of 60% Viognier, 30% Roussanne, and 10% Clairette , all planted by Vincent Boyer about 10 years ago and farmed organically.  The ripe fruit is harvested in the early morning cool and fermented and aged in cool stainless steel tanks for maximum freshness.  You’ll find generous aromas that center on mid-summer ripe yellow peach and fresh apricot with accents of white flowers and honeysuckle.  The wine feels rich and broad on the palate, but not at all heavy or thick, with lush peach and apricot fruit, more floral/honeysuckle, and a juicy dash of lime for freshness.  The limey acidity and a touch of dusty mineral lends freshness to the rich, long, finish and keeps you coming back for more.  A great companion for anything from chicken salad to fresh fish or just a sunny afternoon.

A sizzling value in super-Tuscan red blends of 50% Sangiovese - for Italian zest and red fruit - and 50% Cabernet Sauvignon - for richness and dark currant fruit - raised 70% in tank and 30% in large oak cask for spice.  It's loaded with black cherry, plum, and black currant fruit aromas and flavors with a hint of cedar and tobacco for complexity.  Juicy like Chianti, rich Cabernet Sauvignon.  Yum!

Valminor Albarino Rias Baixas 2016 Valminor Albarino Rias Baixas 2016

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!

Altosur Cabernet Sauvignon Mendoza 2016 Product #31686 (In Stock)
Altosur Cabernet Sauvignon Mendoza 2016 Altosur Cabernet Sauvignon Mendoza 2016

Altosur - "High in the South" - wines are grown at 1,200 meters and higher elevations, giving them a fine purity and finesse to go with the bold Mendoza fruit. From estate grown fruit and with a few months barrel aging, this is loaded with juicy currant and blackberry fruit framed by touches of chocolate and crushed herb.  Plenty of heft - no one will call this "light" - but no heaviness in a tasty, drink now and with anything, Cabernet Sauvignon value.

It's hard to imagine how a scorching hot, bone dry, region like Northern Spain's Rueda can turn out such vibrant, fresh, thirst-quenching wines - but it does!  This blends 10% of Rioja's Viura with Rueda's on Verdejo, both from vines from 15 to 140 years old.  Picked in the cool of the night, fermented in tank, and bottled with no other manipulation, this serves up generous aromas and flavors of apricot, peach and tangerine.  A hint of prickly CO2, juicy acids and refreshing citrus pith make your mouth water and hand reach back for another sip.  A great warm-weather refresher and terrific with seafood and afternoon nibbles.

Another great vintage for this 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.

The cool, maritime, vineyards of Muscadet and it's unique Melon de Bourgogne grape don't get nearly enough attention and respect.  Try this and you'll see why Muscadet is the perfect companion to shellfish and summer heat.  It's at once round and crisp, mouthfilling and weightless, and loaded with lime and green peach fruit.  Time on the lees (the "Sur Lie" on the label) buffers the fresh acids and helps the wine drive to a fresh, almost salty, clean finish.

Dom Du Dragon Grande Cuvee Rose Cotes De Provence 2016 Product #31897 (In Stock)
Dom Du Dragon Grande Cuvee Rose Cotes De Provence 2016 Dom Du Dragon Grande Cuvee Rose Cotes De Provence 2016

Since the 2001 vintage first appeared in the store years ago, Dragon Rosé has been a consistent customer and staff favorite year after year.  The Lienard family tends about 50 acres of vines in Provence and makes this from Cinsault, Syrah, Grenache, and a nice dose of Rolle grown just for pink wine.  Grapes are grown specifically for rosé and are harvested at the perfect balance of fresh fruit and juicy acidity.  Once in the winery, they are lightly crushed and allowed to pick up a just right touch of pink color and red berry flavor before pressing and finishing fermentation in cool stainless steel tanks.

In the outstanding (if small) 2016 vintage, Dragon Rosé has a rich texture and just as much complexity and refreshing vibrancy as ever.  Zesty aromas and flavors of tangy fruit – strawberry, redcurrant, and blood orange – take center stage with a nice dose of rose petal and classic Provençal herb for complexity.  A squeeze of citrus and dusting of chalky mineral help chase the pretty flavors across your palate and leave your mouth watering on the crisp, spicy, stony dry finish.  A lovely match for everything from grilled salmon to Salade Niçoise and delightful to sip on its own.
