12 Days of Drinks: All I Want for Christmas Whites Case + Upgrade
Your 12 Days of Drinks: All I Want for Christmas Whites Case + Upgrade includes:
Nguilleu Sauvignon Blanc - Central Valley, Chile - (x2)
Named for a sun-like, fruit-bearing plant that grows in the southern Andes mountains, Nguilleu wines are emblematic of the balance of tradition and innovation that characterizes the growing Chilean wine scene. 2015 Nguilleu Sauvignon Blanc is grown in a cold weather climate, and steel-aged for a bright and tart feel. The aromas are perfumed with grapefruit, and the flavors offer notes of lemon, gooseberry, and grass, with a mild salinity that is balanced by mellow honeysuckle on the finish.
Boondaree Verdelho - Southeastern Australia - (x2)
Verdelho are white grapes from Portugal that have spread across the world, producing dynamic white wines in Spain and, now, Australia. 2015 Boondaree Verdelho carries flavors of candied banana, apple, and lemon, with a fresh acidity. This wine pleases Chardonnay-lovers and mingles well with heavier fishes, roast chicken and root vegetables, and creamy pastas.
Bertoli Vermentino I.G.T. - Tuscany, Italy - (x2)
Carefree as flowers thrown from a seaside cliff, this irresistibly fresh, light-bodied white has complex notes of peaches, flowers, sage, and rosemary. Pair it with zesty lime or garlic-seasoned dishes, and be sure to enjoy. Bertoli Toscano IGT Vermentino tastes like an outdoor wedding, perfect ocean breeze and all.

Hayton Family Reserve Chardonnay - California - (x2)
Citrus, apple and tropical fruit flavors mingle with a gentle acidity in this light, unoaked Chardonnay. 2015 Hayton Family Reserve Chardonnay is remarkably refreshing, and begs for a pairing with buttery seafood, chicken, or pasta dishes, and even savory sides like mashed potatoes and gravy.
Suben Riesling - Mosel, Germany - (x2)
Life is sweet when you open this classic off-dry white from the hilled vineyards of Germany. 2015 Süßen Riesling hails from the lauded Mosel river valley, with a ripe and honeyed profile that pairs well with Chinese, Thai, and Indian food. Pronounce it “ZOOH-sin.”
