Fincalegre Cava Brut (x1) ***
Cavas are absolutely sensational and truly an amazing value for sparkling wine. The Fincalegre Cava was produced by Bodegas Luis Alegre with the goal of providing a luxurious bubbly at an approachable price. The Cava Brut is the flagship wine of this effort. Made with the local Spanish grapes of Macabeo (40%), Xarel-lo (40%) and Chardonnay (20%), the gapes for this wine are picked by hand to ensure the highest quality. The winemakers of Bodegas Luis Alegre are perfectionists and they control the winemaking process from vine to glass. This control enables them to ensure that everything is as they like it. This includes the natural aromas of the varietals (green apple and citrus) to be present on the nose. The technique used in making this wine enables the complex flavors of a great sparkling wine to be added to the fresh fruit flavors. Perfect as an aperitif, it can also pair with food like sushi or spicy Mexican and Asian dishes. Stunning sparkler and an affordable price.
Bear Hug Winemaker Select Chardonnay (x2) ***
Chardonnay is the world’s most versatile white grape with regards to the different characteristics it can display in the wine. It is highly dependent on two things—the growing region, and when it is picked. After that, the winemaker can choose different processes to shape the profile even more. The eventual end result is found in the bottle, making it difficult to hit the bullseye on the Chardonnay that best fits you. Within lots there are special groupings that winemakers covet more than others. These lots are isolated and bottled separately, also known as Winemaker Select. With this in mind, we offer our sister label of our ever-popular California Cabernet, Bear Hug Winemaker Select California Chardonnay. From the first sip, you will find flavors of green apple, nectarine, honeysuckle, and melon, all in a perfect harmonious balance.
Le Parlement Bordeaux Blanc (x2)
White Bordeaux is not on most people's wine radar, but we get excited for white Bordeaux. For us, it has everything we love about Sauvignon Blanc, while adding complexity that true enthusiasts can appreciate. When we found Le Parlement Bordeaux Blanc, we were blown away by the balance. It is delicate, with levels of finesse layered into its pale straw color. Attractive flavors of zesty citrus, fresh grass, gooseberry, and honeysuckle yield generously after every sip. This is a limited wine that must not be missed.
Cachil Sauvignon Blanc Reserva (x2) ***
Produced in what is to be considered the most prestigious region in Chile, Colchagua Valley was 2005 wine region of the year by Wine enthusiast magazine, and for great reason. It's climate and soil, combined with modern technologies mixed with traditional methods, produces wines of superior quality. This Sauvignon blanc, with bright with layers of citrus fruit, freshly cut grass and vibrant acidity, makes for a wonderful drinking experience for any white wine lover.
Val Di Botte Pinot Grigio I.G.T. (x2) ***
Just south of Milan close to the Italian Alps and boarding Alto-Adige, probably the definitive source for the world’s best Pinot Grigio, is where Val di Botte sources the amazing grapes that produce this exquisite white wine. This low alcohol balanced acid driven Pinot Grigio flaunts citrus zest, apple, pears, and nectarine flavors mingling with slight almond and ginger notes. The quintessential summertime wine, it is light, refreshing, and perfect for the season. We recommend this wine served ice cold to maximize the crispness.
Snickerdoodle Chardonnay (x2)
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.
Pepi White Blend (x2)
For more than forty years, Pepi has been a pioneer in California white wine. From the cool coastal vineyards of California comes lively fruit that beckons you to a picnic or a day at the beach. They strive for a balance of flavor, acidity and fruit that reflects their cool coastal vineyard sources. Pepi White Blend is a perfect wine for a light afternoon lunch. It's an appetizing blend of these two under-appreciated grapes. The Chenin Blanc supplies the backbone for the wine and displays sweet honeysuckle notes, while the Viognier allows for spicy expressions of peach and other fruit nectars. Crisp and clean, this wine has a refreshing and spritzy finish.
Trail Mix Napa Valley White Blend (x2)
One of the two main roads in Napa Valley, the Silverado Trail winds through some of Napa’s greatest vineyards. Malvasia, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, and Chenin Blanc are all sourced from Napa just off the Silverado Trail and are blended together to make a beautiful white wine. Trail Mix Napa Valley White Wine is a unique blend with 100% grapes from Napa and the majority of them from Yountville and St. Helena. The combined results yield a medium-bodied white with notes of tropical fruit, lavender, rose petal, and vanilla. Flavors of melon, key lime, and grapefruit pair with balanced acidity. A delicious and refreshing California white.
