This wonderful Chardonnay is a limited production wine created as a tribute to one of California's pioneering vineyard families. It has a refreshing "say no to oak" style – bright and light with citrus, apple and tropical fruit aromas and flavors. A gentle acidity adds structure while allowing the delicate fruit flavors to shine. Versatile and food-friendly, it makes a good choice with seafood, poultry, or pasta dishes with butter-based sauces.
With their seasons opposite the ones northern winemakers have, the 2013 Carma Sauvingon Blanc was among our first 2013 wines and it started the vintage off on a great note. The Carma 2013 is made from 100% Sauvignon Blanc, and is a classic example of what can be done with the variety in Central Chile. The grapes are exposed to wonderful sun and an almost greenhouse-like regularity of dry, hot days and dry, cool nights throughout the growing season--near perfect ripening conditions. The result is a clean, citrusy, lean and fresh wine. The nose is full of grapefruit and green apple followed by zesty flavors of green fruits, lime, and floral notes and a long, crisp finish. Outstanding as an aperitif or a cocktail wine, it is also ideal with salads using arugula, fennel, or roasted bell peppers, and is a refreshing companion for richer white meats like pork and lobster.
Chances are you have never heard of the two grapes Colombard and Ugni Blanc. Only if you have deeply explored regions in France like Gascogne and Armangac, most people don't get to experience how amazing these grapes can be when made with passion. The results are beautiful, case in point with Colombelle White. Lots of tropical fruit and sweet lemon zest flavors are paired with balanced acids and a mouthfeel that has some depth.
Portugal is truly a wonderland of exotic grapes that many in America have never been exposed to before. This Albarrada white, an exclusive wine, is a great example. Bringing together two white grapes native to Portugal, Roupiero and Rabo-de-Ovelha, that most Americans have never sampled, this exotic wine is a great way to be introduced to the wonderful grapes of Portugal. The Vinho Branco (white wine in Portuguese) from Albarrada is a crisp and refreshing white blend. Rabo-de-Ovelha is a beautiful blending grape, that normally is bold untethered and the Roupeiro provides a maturity and subtlety that makes the whole blend simply extraordinary.
This 2011 Sauvignon Blanc was crafted from select parcels of fruit from vineyards across South Eastern Australia. The wine colour is very pale straw with bright green hints. On the nose it shows strong aromas of fresh tropical fruits.
California Viognier is absolutely stunning. From the first scents of aromas from the glass, smells of flowers and orange blossom that are so pleasant. Tasting this wine puts a smile on our faces as rich aromas of orange blossom and spice lead to a medium-bodied wine with a delightful mélange of flavors including pear, white melon and citrus. Surprisingly dry, with a wonderfully refreshing finish.
This fruit forward Chardonnay offers up aromas of ripe grapefruit and freshly sliced apples. The vines sit along the coast line where the cool winds off the Pacific ocean cool off the vines which allows them to retain crisp acidity and bright flavors as they ripen on the vine. On the palate the flavors are clean and balanced, with elegant notes of soft vanilla, ripe melon, and a hint of honey. This wine will be paired beautifully with baked fish topped with a creamy butter sauce. This is the type of wine that can be enjoyed during any occasion.
The Morse Code Chardonnay is produced to allow the fruit to be apparent and forward, but with the subtle use of oak to compliment and add a level of complexity. This cool climate wine has lifted aromas of lime, citrus blossom and hints of fennel as well as some background cashew notes from the subtle use of oak. The wine tastes of candied citrus and pear, with a textural element from lees stirring and background oak characters adding some nice complexity. The palate has good acidity and shows minerality characteristic of Padthaway, with a fine and lingering finish. The fruit was sourced from the Estate’s Padthaway vineyards, of red loamy soil over limestone. A proportion of this wine was naturally fermented in new French barrels and a little over 20% of the wine was matured on lees with batonage in French barrels for a period of four months. You don't need a code to figure out this is a delicious wine
Portuguese white wines are not on the tip of most people's tongue and honestly, we are not sure why. We've carried a few Portuguese whites in the past and they have been big sellers. I assume it is because of the flavor profile and value combination that it delivers, its an easy choice to make. We welcome Longitude white to our lineup and it delivers with out a hitch. A crisp white that delivers flavors of melon, honey, and citrus with a vibrant but slightly weighted finish. Its a wine that at the price, is perfect for having around, chilled, ready to go at a moments notice.
Not only is this terrific wine delicious as an aperitif, but its complexity and verve make it a great match with seafood, from shrimp and scallops to salmon and mackerel. Aromas of lime, pear, white flowers, green apple and honeydew melon lead to a crisp clean acidity with refreshing cucumber, kiwi, and apple flavors, finishing with a refreshing minerality.
Grown in a sunny, protected valley in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, this treat showcases the flavors of a cooler weather Sauvignon Blanc, with a touch of Semillon for depth. Fresh and zesty with aromas of melon, freshly cut grass, green apple, sweet citrus zest and fig, this wine has a brisk acidity that carries its fruit and herbal flavors through a refreshing finish. Serve with fresh goat cheese, seafood or vegetarian dishes.
