Award Winners 15-PK Whites
Arnozan Bordeaux Lussac-St.Emilion (x3)
The vineyard that nurtures and grows this immaculate bordeaux’s grapes spreads across the hillsides and plateaus of southwestern France’s coveted Saint-Emillion. The blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon results in a vividly colored red wine, with red ripe flavors of cherry and spice, and hints of cedar on the nose and palate. Arnozan Lussac St. Emilion Red Wine is perfectly balanced, with soft and silky tannins, and a wonderful, well-rounded finish.
NV Abbazia Moscato Vino Dolce I.G.T. (x2)
This moscato is a fun and spritzy white wine from Northern Italy’s Lombardia province, where sun-soaked days and cool nights produce highly flavorful wines. This sweet and beautifully floral wine is ideal as an aperitif or with a delectable dessert. Abbazia Moscato won the Gold in the 2016 Winemaker Challenge International Wine Competition, with a score of 93 points.
2015 Hayton Family Reserve Chardonnay (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.
NV Fincalegre Cava Brut (x2)
Cava Brut is the flagship for Fincalegre’s successful effort to provide luxurious sparkling wines at approachable prices. Made from hand-picked Spanish Macabeo (40%), Xarel-lo (40%) and Chardonnay (20%) grapes, the result is a stunning sparkler that hews closer to champagne than prosecco. This bubbly’s fresh fruit flavors make for an aperitif that can be enjoyed throughout the meal, especially if you’re serving sushi, or spicier Mexican and Asian dishes. Fincalegre Cava Brut won the Gold medal for Best Cava in the 2016 Winemaker Challenge International Wine Competition, with a score of 90 points.
2014 Le Parlement Bordeaux Blanc (x2)
When we found Le Parlement Bordeaux Blanc, we were blown away by this delicate, layered white wine with generous flavors of zesty citrus, fresh grass, gooseberry and honeysuckle. White Bordeaux is not on most people's wine radar, but we love this sophisticated wine that has a Sauvignon Blanc’s appeal, with an added complexity that appeals to true enthusiasts. Do not miss this limited wine, which won the Gold for Best Bordeaux Blend in the 2016 Winemaker Challenge International Wine Competition.
2015 La Petite Tour Classic White (x2)
La Petite Tour winery has been a highlight of California’s wine scene since the 1980s. Over the years, this white blend has remained a family favorite, and was originally only made in small lots for their own table. La Petite Tour Classic White is a delicately aromatic, medium-bodied wine with flavors of ripe pear and surprisingly bright citrus notes. It’s a versatile food wine, that pairs well with fish, grilled chicken or vegetables, and we’ve found that it’s the bottle that thrills white wine fans…and converts red wine drinkers.
2016 Moon Crest Sauvignon Blanc (x2)
Fresh with aromas of melon, freshly cut grass, green apple, sweet citrus zest and fig, this zesty Sauvignon Blanc compliments sharper flavors like fresh herbs, tomatoes and smoked fish.
