Marisco, “Fernlands” Sauvignon Blanc, Marlborough NZ $13
A true and classic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc that offers exotic aromas of passionfruit & guava, you’ll also find hints of lime and lemon and possibly a touch of gooseberry. Bold, vivid flavors that mirror the nose are given life and length on the palate and a hint of acidity and minerality that coats your tongue.
Boedecker, “Gigi” Gewurztraminer/Pinot Gris, Willamette OR $15
Gi-Gi has a fragrant nose of roses, lavender, and lychees with hints of applesauce and baking spices. Medium-bodied, it is a dry style though it seems to have just a touch of residual sugar, finishing with lingering perfumed tropical fruits notes and plenty of spice. A blend of 32% Gewürztraminer and 68% Pinot Gris.
Badenhorst, “Secetaurs” Chenin Blanc, South Africa $16
The delicious Secateurs Chenin Blanc will surely ignite a love affair with South African wines. Floral and honey flavors give the wine a little sweetness, but it is still pleasantly dry. Delicious alone, but would be a great addition to anything cheesy or with seafood - maybe even elevating the humble fish and chips? Secateurs Chenin Blanc is an absolute bargain for such a great wine from such a fantastic wine region. Pick up a bottle and fall in love.
Anne Amie, Amrita, Willamette $15
The name Amrita comes from the Buddhist equivalent of ambrosia, or a wine of the gods. This wonderful white has notes of raspberry, pie cherry, strawberries and cream, baking spice, blood orange, and black pepper. Has a long, dry, acid driven finish. Outstanding.
Anne Amie, Pinot Blanc, Willamette $19
Our 2013 Anne Amie Estate Pinot Blanc is aged on lees in French Oak barrels for 9 months. A soft, round mouth feel enhances pear and citrus flavors with hints of vanilla, leading to a long, rich finish. Juicy fruit, orange blossom, white pepper, ripe pear, graham
Kerloo, Grenache Blanc, Columbia Valley $21
An enticing nose that showcases bright citrus, light honey, and a hint of dry straw. This wine has a bright acidity along with a supple of mouth feel. Bursts of star fruit, lemon peel, minerals, and salinity will definitely hit the spot! You’ll want this beauty with anything seafood.
