This small cooperative winery in the heart of Champagne has struck gold with this cuvee- and yellow label gold at that. Because the Charles Clement Brut Tradition is the kind of wine that will thrill anyone who loves... Read More
From Duckhorn's “value” project, this shares the approach of their Goldeneye and Migration Pinots. Ripe Pinot fruit from across California gives this plenty of dark cherry, currant and wild strawberry fruit aromas... Read More
Probably a blend of Grenache Noir, Grenache Blanc, Grenache Gris, and/or Maccabeu with a smaller amount of Muscat Blanc a Petit Grains or Muscat d'Alexandria – but no one knows for certain. The grape were almost certainly... Read More
There's a bit of something old-fashioned about Frog's Leap, from the 140 year-old red barn that holds the Rutherford winery to the laid back, unforced, style of their wines. Their Zinfandel is lower in alcohol than many,... Read More
A completely delicious "drinker's Champagne" based on vintage 2014 (with 20% 2013) and lots of time on the lees to develop toastiness and creaminess of texture. We love how the brioche notes linger here.
If good things don’t always come in small packages, they certainly do here! The estate has been making benchmark Meursault in the old style since Albert Grivault began building the domaine in the 1870s. In 2020, as usual,... Read More
A classic Manzanilla sherry - like a fresh and salty Fino but with more salty minerality. Green olive and fresh almond scents carry through on the palate and are joined by exotic notes of honeysuckle, fresh herb, and loads of... Read More
Another great release of this, our all-time best-selling premium California Chardonnay. As always, it blends fruit from across the Sonoma Coast AVA including Carneros, the southern Russian River and cooler sites to the west. Serves... Read More
Recioto is Amarone left sweet - in this case, gloriously, richly, deeply, sweet but remarkably fragrant and fresh, too. Musella only makes Recioto in great vintages, using the very best grapes of the harvest dried on straw mats... Read More
We did NOT intend to buy a Long Island desert wine, but once tasted, there's no resisting this stunning late harvest Sauvignon Blanc marked by a touch of botrytis and made in new French oak. A big range of tropical notes -... Read More
Organic/Bio Summery Sauternes! The freshness and verve here make this a lovely pairing with fresh berry tart or even a simple bowl of mid-summer fruit. A classic blend of Semillon and Sauvignon with just enough barrel influence... Read More
Organic/Bio A traditional dessert wine style from just outside the walled city of San Gimignano, Tuscany. Trebbiano, Malvasia, and San Colombano grapes are dried and then aged five years in small barrels (traditionally chestnut)... Read More
As always, a crisp, refreshing, NZ Savvy with plenty of exuberant fruit and a touch of fresh cut grass for complexity. It's light, crisp and dry, with flavors of green passionfruit and a touch of pink grapefruit. A tiny touch... Read More
Expect the unexpected here, starting with the grapes - 30% Sauvignon Blanc and 70% Muskat Ottonel, a Muscat/Chasselas cross created in 1852 to deliver some of Muscat's exotic perfume with a bit less weight. The grapes grow... Read More
Fruit from Oak Knoll, Yountville, Rutherford and Calistoga picked on the early side in 2020 (13.3% alcohol) but still plenty ripe, rich and spiced from 14 months in 35% new French oak. Fresh blueberry, tangy blackberry, a touch... Read More
