International Chardonnay Day Half-Case + French Trio
Your French Trio includes one bottle each of:
2015 Cepage Sauvignon Blanc - Vin de Pays, France
There are many reasons to be a fan of Sauvignon Blanc. It is light, refreshing, vibrant, and versatile. Cépage Sauvignon Blanc hails from France, the white grape’s country of origin. With crisp notes of citrus and exotic fruits, Cépage is perfectly balanced with a sense of freshness and a lingering finish. This wine drinks brilliantly on its own, but truly shines when paired with fresh fish and creative salads.

2016 Marquis de Bacalan Sauvignon Blanc - Bordeaux, France
While almost 90% of the wine produced in France’s legendary Bordeaux region is red, Bordeaux whites are made with the same care and eye for detail as the region’s reds. For example, 2016 Marquis de Bacalan Sauvignon Blanc thrilled us with its sophistication. This vibrant white is a pale lemon color with green tints, a fantastically fresh nose of citrus, white peach, and honeysuckle, and a gentle creaminess on the palate.
Your International Chardonnay Day Half-Case includes one bottle each of:
2016 Bianchi Chenin Blanc/Chardonnay - Argentina
This refreshing blend of Chenin Blanc and Chardonnay is made from handpicked Argentinean grapes, grown at the foot of the Andes in San Rafael, Mendoza. 2016 Bianchi Chenin Blanc/Chardonnay has an attractive profile that balances Chenin Blanc’s dry and zesty feel with Chardonnay’s richer qualities, resulting in a versatile white wine with notes of pear and apple.
2016 Big Cirrus Chardonnay - Valle Central, Chile
Looking for a crisp Chardonnay? You’ve found it in 2016 Big Cirrus Chardonnay. This Chilean white was made in its country’s traditional manner, where the grapes are picked early on in their ripeness, to maintain a fresh, green feeling. Big Cirrus refreshes with vibrant flavors of green apple and citrus zest before moving into a smooth finish.
2016 Trebuchet Chardonnay - Western Cape, South Africa
Serve this dry South African Chardonnay chilled, to emphasize its crisp flavors of lime, lemon, and pineapple. This lightly creamy white is a beautiful pale yellow, with eye-catching flashes of green, and a refreshing profile that makes it the go-to wine when you’re enjoying your favorite meals.

2016 Paperbark Chardonnay - South Australia
From a fifth-generation winemaking family in southern Australia’s historic Barossa Valley region, Paperbark wines are as loveable as their namesake, an Australian tree with peeling bark and fluffy white flowers. 2016 Paperbark Chardonnay is a pale yellow in the glass, sharing aromas of ripe peach with notes of tart citrus. This barrel-matured wine’s palate is medium bodied, with notes of nougat and spice from wild fermentation, and a hint of vanilla from oak aging.
2015 Hayton Family Reserve Chardonnay - California
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.
