Whitehaven Sauvignon Blanc 2019
|Region||New Zealand, Marlborough|
Pale lemon with a green hue and a bright clarity. Lifted passionfruit, grapefruit, gooseberry, and peach fruit flavours, with complexing hints of jalapeno, nettle, boxwood and blackcurrant leaf. A full flavoured, medium bodied wine, with an abundance of regionally typical blackcurrant and gooseberry flavours that linger on the dry, clean finish. This wine is a perfect accompaniment to summer salads, poultry and shellfish, such as Marlborough's famous green-shell mussels. Also try it with lobster and white fish.

Ruffino Chianti Classico Riserva Ducale Oro 2014 750mlRuby red with garnet hues. Powerfully aromatic with cherry, plum, and tobacco with notes of eucalyptus, chocolate, and spicy white pepper.

Decoy Sonoma County Chardonnay 2018 750mlThis deliciously bright and inviting Chardonnay offers layers of apricot, citrus and green apple, as well as hints of fresh honeysuckle and cinnamon.

Drink now through 2020.
Casale del Giglio Bellone Bianco 2016 750mlDeep yellow flecked with gold. The wine evokes sunshine and ripe tropical fruit such as mango and papaya, carefully balanced by a marked acidity which makes it suitable for long bottle aging. Rich, ample and lingering on the palate with light floral and spicy notes. Hallmarked by its pronounced acidity and zesty tang. A long finish. Food Pairings: "Minestra di Sgavajone", a typical soup from the fishermen of Anzio made with 'sgavajone' a local fish rarely found outside their family homes.
Orin Swift 8 Years In The Desert Red 2017 750mlDark garnet with a lucid rim, the wine exhibits aromas of briar fruit, ripe blackberry and dark plum with a tinge of minerality and charred meat. Brawny on the entry, it has an equally big mid-palate with complex flavors of ripe brambly fruit, a touch of earth and notes of espresso bean. Still massive through to the finish with soft drying tannins, the unique varietal characteristics of the blend clearly reveal themselves over time.
Antica Fratta Essence Franciacorta Brut 750mlRanked the #17 White, Sparkling & Rose Wine in our February 9, 2019 "Big Taste" of The Vineyard Wine Tasting Event. An elegantly fresh, vivacious and full Franciacorta, characterized by pleasing fruity and floral aromas. Obtained from Chardonnay grapes after more than 24 months on yeasts.

Cherry Hill Estate Pinot Noir 2016 750mlRanked the #10 Red Wine in our Sept. 23, 2017 "Big Taste" of The Vineyard Wine Tasting Event. Cherry Hill Winery produced its first vintage from our new winery in 2003. The Cherry Hill Winery Estate Pinot Noir is handcrafted from our Pommard clone which makes up 55% of our 90 acre estate vineyard. Our state of the art gravity feed winery provided us with the tools to carefully handcraft this most difficult grape into a light, delicate Pinot Noir. The fruit for this beautiful wine was hand picked from our best blocks where yields are restricted to two tons per acre. The grapes were de-stemmed and gravity fed to our small fermenters where each lot was carefully monitored. The wine aged in neutral French oak for one year and is a light delicate wine with beautiful color and texture. Like all things of beauty, this wine will improve with age, but it is a beauty now! Food and Serving Suggestions: Pinot Noir is known as the most food-friendly grape and Willamette Valley Pinot Noirs rank with the best in the world. We recommend entrees of fish, beef, wild game, and pastas.
Cherry Pie Rodgers Creek Pinot Noir 2015 750mlAs with the prior vintage, in the 2015 Rodgers Creek Pinot Noir pretty violet floral aromas appear, along with ripe Bing and Rainier cherry and delicate oak spice notes. On the palate, the wine provides layers of flavors of red ripe juicy cherries, tart cranberries and licorice with a subtle cedar note. The complexity found in the palate is further elevated by the integrated and lush tannins that round out the wine, resulting in a decadent long finish.
