This wine is fresh, with flavors of green apple, nectarine, and juicy melon. Only a small touch of oak, this wine remains crisp and refreshing with a perfect amount of linger in the finish. Purely delicious Chardonnay, a gem of a find from California.
Qapay Sauvignon Blanc
Qapay Sauvignon Blanc is a classic example of what can be done with this popular 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.
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.
