Vermentino di Sardegna Nuo Vermentino di Sardegna Nuo $18.00

Quite possibly the oldest wine region in the Med, the now overlooked Sardinia has created remarkable wine for over 3 millenia. Long skin contact and a slight oxidation creates this beautiful golden color. Rich oily texture with a solid acid backbone surrounded by a sea breeze note and herbal tones showing basil, rosemary, sage and cedar. Yet underneath all are vibrant citrus and melon. Completely out of the ordinary, yet a style barely changed since the ceasars. Try it!

A very remarkable blend. The chard brings body and acid while the viognier brings its magical aromatics. A bit of French oak shows through as well.

Bright ripe green apple and passion fruit on the nose supported with wet, clean stone and a touch of basil. Light and elegant with clean bright flavors of lemon, mint, and apple. Doesnt abuse you with too much acid, and has a lovely lingering finish.



La Champine La Champine $21.00

Condrieu is one of those wines that can break your heart and your wallet forever. Unlike any other white wine, Viognier in the Northern Rhone takes on magical ethereal yet contradictory character. Tastes acidic but it isn't, seems like it should be better with age but it dies quickly, fleshy weighty body but so delicate, and on we go. Viognier from the US tends to have the character of canned pear juice, and even Southern Rhone versions lack much depth. But it turns out surrounding Grillet and Condrieu is the Collines Rhondaniennes where Viognier can now be had at a fraction of the price as its famous neighbors. No its not Condrieu but its close enough to still break your heart while leaving your wallet intact.



Vasse Felix Filius Chardonnay Vasse Felix Filius Chardonnay $22.00

San Brizio San Brizio $23.00

This is a 100% Garganega from the vineyard behind Villa Buri. Maturation in 500 lt oak barrels fills out the typical scents of Garganega with delicate tertiary hints of vanilla, acacia honey and a complex ripe fruitiness that make it concentrated, mouth-filling and faintly balsamic. This great Soave from the Alpone Valley is rich and well-structured, with a deep straw yellow hue and golden highlights.



Bramito Chardonnay Bramito Chardonnay $24.00

From the famous Antinori family comes this Italian beauty showing fresh, complex flavors and aromas of pineapple, citrus fruits and butterscotch. Full bodied and crisp with just the right amount of oak, this Chardonnay is sure to be a hit at your next dinner party! !



Sainte Rose Roussane Sainte Rose Roussane $27.00

I've always wanted to see how the big bodied Rhone white varietals would show done in a New World style and finally found one! French oak fermentation and ageing on the lees brings gorgeous body reminiscent of the best oaky CA Chards. Bright peach and honeysuckle flavors wrapped in a foundation of clean acidity and almost oily viscosity. Simply gorgeous.



Domaine Eden Chardonnay 2012 Domaine Eden Chardonnay 2012 $29.00

After years of too much oak and overripe fruit, its wonderful to see balance returning to CA chards. While there certainly is tropical pineapple, apricot and lots of buttery oak, the body is full and round with just enough acid to hold it together. Has a lovely long finish. This reputable vineyard claims this is the best they have ever made, I think I agree!



Paolo dAmico Falesia Paolo dAmico Falesia $29.00

Lopez De Heredia Gravonia Crianza White 2006 Lopez De Heredia Gravonia Crianza White 2006 $31.00

This is why we love Spain. Where else could you have the opportunity to drink a smoking good, 10+ year old bottle of white wine and not pay an arm and a leg? Massive oak, cream and pear dominate the nose and palate with a long, fruitful finish.



Ladies who Shoot their Lunch (riesling) Ladies who Shoot their Lunch (riesling) $35.00

Dry Riesling is a tricky beast. This sustainably farmed version from Victoria is teasingly aromatic, yet with a solid structure that will indeed stand up to game, especially Turkey and fowl. Aromas of lime, citrus and apple spice play rose petal.



Lopez De Heredia Tondonia Gran Reserva Blanco 1991 Lopez De Heredia Tondonia Gran Reserva Blanco 1991 $92.00

Light gold. Explosively perfumed nose offers an array of citrus and orchard fruits, with exotic nuances of mace, chamomile and honey. Rich and deeply pitched but almost shockingly vibrant, offering spicy pear, nectarine and lemon pith flavors. Suavely blends richness and vivacity, finishing with excellent clarity and length. This should age at a snail's pace.
