2020 Mending Wall Stone on Stone Napa Valley White Blend
The Mending Wall Stone to Stone White is a delicious Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon blend. To retain acidity and preserve the mouthwatering nature of the wine, malolactic fermentation is blocked. This favors a more grassy, steely profile in the style of white Bordeaux, and is aged 100% neutral wood. The Semillon brings an appealing fleshiness to the blend, lending the palate a sleek viscosity that the Sauvignon Blanc frames with nicely integrated acid and minerality. 70 % Sauvignon Blanc and 30% Sémillon.
2018 Quinta Essentia Stellenbosch Chenin Blanc
A delicate yellow color with a hint of green suggests a vintage with good ripeness but good freshness. Fresh pineapple, yellow peach, litchi and a hint of gunsmoke greet the nose. Ripe orchard fruits are revealed on a medium-bodied palate that has lovely linearity and tension. The wine is poised and balanced, with a great combination of ripeness and mineral tension. Maturation in oak has resulted in characters of warm toasted brioche and roasted almonds, and the maturation on fermentation lees has given a creamy integration to all the flavor components.
2021 Livio Felluga Friuli Pinot Grigio
The nose is complex, subtle and enfolding. Generous and floral, with notes of acacia flowers, jasmine, hawthorn, broom and elderflower, followed by hints of white and yellow fruits like pears, peaches, Golden Delicious apples and apricot, blended with a fresh minerality and a pleasant citrus note. Sweet sensations of lemon cream and crème brûlée are supported by a spicy freshness. The palate is full-bodied, crisp, rounded. A fresh, enfolding, mineral and savory entry. Complex mouthfeel with rich notes of white peaches, lychees, apples and winter melon, complemented by sweet hints of tea biscuits. Fresh, tangy and harmonious. The very long, lingering finish offers a fruity, salty aftertaste. Pairs beautifully with fish, shellfish, risottos, and baked vegetables.
2021 Esprit de Saint Sulpice Bordeaux Blanc AC
The Espirit de Saint-Sulpice Bordeaux Blanc is marked by a complex aroma and flavor suggestive of limes, honeysuckle, mangoes, and pineapples. Carefully blended, the wine is dry yet full flavored, mineral and long on the finish. This delicious dry white can be served as an aperitif or as a perfect complement to shellfish, seafood, salads, and white meats. 80% Sauvignon Blanc, 20% Semillon.
