2015 Vinum Chenin Blanc - South Africa
Vinum Africa is a winery that loves a challenge. So when they looked at Chenin Blanc, the former “ugly duckling” of Stellenbosch, they knew they could make great wine from the oft neglected grape. Once again, they stepped up and performed beautifully. After a single sniff one can already sense the elegance and vibrancy it possesses. The notes of white petals and crisp citrus are sure to excite. The palate has layers of fresh lime and gentle spices all underscored by fruit. The wine finishes with a refreshing minerality the lets the fruit resonate. This Chenin Blanc is highly versatile and may go best with somewhat exotic cuisine—Thai or Indian, perhaps?
2015 Voluptueux Sauvignon/Colombard - Cotes du Gascogne, France
Two classic French grapes work together in harmony to create a fresh and crisp white that will refresh any white wine lover. 2015 Voluptueux Sauvignon Blanc/Colombard offers the perfect balance of fruitiness and crisp acidity. It is extremely aromatic, with notes of citrus and exotic fruit that follow through on the palate with refreshing, long-lasting flavor. Serve it chilled with white fish, seafood, and appetizers.

2016 Nguilleu Sauvignon Blanc - Central Valley, Chile
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. 2016 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.
