Il Bastardo Sangiovese Toscana 2016 Product #32638 (In Stock)
Il Bastardo Sangiovese Toscana 2016 Il Bastardo Sangiovese Toscana 2016

In Wood Case While It Lasts!  A fun, flavorful, and fine value Tuscan Sangiovese made by winemaker Paolo Masi at Tuscany’s Renzo Masi winery from grapes grown near Florence and Chianti Ruffina.  The Masi family’s Fattoria di Basciano has been hailed by Wine Advocate as “one of the rising stars of Rufina,” and their Renzo Masi project was designed to use friends’ and neighbors’ grapes to make “wines with vibrant territorial personality."  This special project by the Masi’s for importer Bob Shack does that in spades and at a fantastic value price to boot!

Ripe aromas and flavors of cherry and red berry start off bright and fresh and then get darker with a little air. The juicy acidity and light tannins make this easy to just sip, but give it enough substance to enjoy with pizza, burgers, or a big bowl of pasta and red sauce.  There's enough going on here to hold your interest through a few glasses and - especially at this price - tempt you to open a second bottle as the night goes on.  Fun stuff and fantastic value.

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

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.

Monte Degli Angeli Pinot Noir Monferrato 2016 Product #32690 (In Stock)
Monte Degli Angeli Pinot Noir Monferrato 2016 Monte Degli Angeli Pinot Noir Monferrato 2016

You've got to be willing to think a bit outside the box to find real, honest, Pinot Noir selling for less than $10 these days.  Here we head to Italy's Piemonte region - more famous for Barolo and Barbaresco - to a small family-owned estate run by Brothers Antonio and Paolo Sperone.  The climate here is closer to Burgundy than you'd expect, and it lets the Sperones harvest ripe, juicy, Pinot Noir fruit and then give it 6 months in barrel to soften and gain complexity.  Black cherry and strawberry fruit hold center stage here with accents of smoke and fresh earth.  Juicy in the middle and supported by light, fine, tannin, this is a steal in value Pinot Noir that tastes like...well, Pinot Noir!

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!

Paul Direder's deliciously uncomplicated wines just keep getting better. The 2016 Gruner Veltliner in its party-friendly liter screwcap bottle features refreshing aromas of green apple, fresh peach, and orange-tinged citrus.  You’ll love how the ripe apple, pear, and pineapple fruit gets lifted across your palate by a faint accent of spicy ginger.  Your mouth will water as the clean, fresh, stone and orchard fruit flavors just get fresher from lingering notes of lemon and lime. A great poolside and party value!

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

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!

Chapelle Saint Antonin Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 Chapelle Saint Antonin Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Proof that you can find a great (and great value) bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon outside of Bordeaux or Napa!  This is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from France's Languedoc region, harvested ripe in the outstanding 2016 vintage, aged in tank, and bottled up fresh for you.  Hearty and deep, this showcases classic Cab notes of blackcurrant, blackberry, and dark chocolate with an elevating dash of herb and spice.  The dark fruit flows on through the finish where a note of hot stone smokiness emerges and melds with the spice and herb.  Rich and smooth enough to just sip and a great companion at table, too.

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!

Ch Haut Queray Bordeaux Superieur 2016 Ch Haut Queray Bordeaux Superieur 2016

Even as 2015 Bordeaux begin to arrive in the USA, excitement is building for vintage 2016.  A wet winter, followed by a dry summer with just enough rain to keep the vines working, delivered wines of pristine ripeness with sweet, supple, tannins, loads of fruit, and unbelievable supple tannins.  As Wine Advocate said in their 2016 barrel tasting summary, “You will love these wines.”

As always, the best thing about a great Bordeaux vintage is how the “little guys” were able to make compelling wines that sell for a song.  Here, three women – Madam Martine Borderie with her daughter and daughter-in-law – have crafted a magnificent, pure, Bordeaux from this 200 year-old Right Bank estate just outside Lussac Saint-Emilion.  It’s 100% Merlot and made without one stick of wood.  But the aromas, flavors, and texture all scream “classic Bordeaux.”  Aromas and flavors of black and redcurrant, sweet spice, and subtle tobacco-like herb jump from the glass and coat your palate in a wine that’s silky through the middle and appetizingly dry on the long, spicy, finish.  Drink it this year with holiday lamb or beef dishes and leave a few bottles in the stylish wood case to develop even more complexity through 2021.

Beelgara Estate Semillon Sauvignon Blanc 2016 Beelgara Estate Semillon Sauvignon Blanc 2016

No one's quite sure how the Aussie's hit on the idea of importing Bordeaux's white wine recipe - blending snappy Sauv Blanc with richer, creamier, Semillon - but wines like this show why they keep on doing it.  Here 80% Semillon gives melon, stone fruit, body and wet wool complexity while the Sauvignon Blanc adds citrus, herbal notes and overall pop.  Refreshing and fun, this has plenty of body and a nice note of tangerine skin on the full and fleshy finish.

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!

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 Product #32331 (In Stock)
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!

There’s just an extra zing of tangy refreshment this year, making this the perfect accompaniment to a wide variety of foods from salads to Thai food. With a lovely, dense texture, this is not the watery, bland Pinot Grigio you might expect at this price!

Giorgio Z Pinot Grigio Friuli 2016 Product #32501 (In Stock)

Friuli, just south of the Dolomite Mountains in northeastern Italy, gives a richer, broader, expression of Pinot Grigio than you'll find in Alto Adige. Which makes wines like this beauty a wonderful match for richer fish/poultry dishes and sipping in cooler weather.  Classic aromas and flavors of acacia blossom, ripe orchard fruits, and a light dose of green citrus with a rich, dense, almost unctuous texture that really coats your mouth.  Finishes with fine energy as green melon and lime zest flavors linger. The winemaker allowed the fresh Pinot Gris juice to stay in contact with the skins for a few hours adding a bit of golden color and a touch of refreshing bitterness that keeps this fresh, compelling, and delicious sip after sip.

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.
