2013 Forman Chardonnay Napa Valley $53.99/$46.69/$42.02

“It is never put through malolactic. The superb 2013 Chardonnay offers lots of minerality along with notions of white peaches, spring flowers, orange blossoms and poached pears. With loads of fruit, great acid and finesse, and only a hint of oak in the flavor profile, this medium to full-bodied, gorgeous Chardonnay can be enjoyed 2014–2020.” –Robert M. Parker, Jr., 94 points. New vintage.

2016 Bailly Reverdy Sancerre $29.99/$23.39/$21.05

A lovely open nose, expressive on citrus notes: lemon, grapefruit. It's very fresh in the mouth; you can taste the citrus notes. Lovely balanced and delicate. Here, Sauvignon Blanc planted to limestone-rich soils produces a wine of intense minerality, with the naturally spicy character of this varietal in the background in beautiful balance. New vintage.

2015 Domaine Dupeuble Beaujolais Blanc Chardonnay Burgundy$19.99/$16.79/$15.11

A charming un-oaked Chardonnay with a crisp and vibrant character. Domaine Dupeuble has been running almost continuously since 1512. They farm their vineyards without the use of any chemicals or synthetic fertilizers. They also harvest with their hands. Kermit Lynch started bringing this small production wine to the states in the late 1980’s. Less than 500 cases come stateside each year. New item.

2015 Kendall-Jackson Chardonnay Vintner's Reserve California $19.99/$14.99/$13.49

“Plush, with loads of richness to the well-honed flavors of beeswax, baked pear and lemon tart. Minerally midpalate, with a fresh and zesty finish that finishes with pastry notes. Drink now through 2020. #28 Wine Spectator Top 100 2017.” 91 points 

2016 Chateau Ste. Michelle Sauvignon Blanc Horse Heaven Hills $19.99/$13.89/$12.50

“This Sauvignon Blanc from our Horse Heaven Vineyard is a crisp, racy style of Sauvignon Blanc with citrus characteristics. We use partial stainless steel fermentation to preserve the Sauvignon Blanc’s pure, fresh, vibrant character.” Bob Bertheau, Winemaker. New vintage.

2016 Terredora di Paolo Falanghina Irpinia $18.99/$12.19/$10.97

“Pale yellow in color with rich and intense aroma of fruit with hints of apple, pineapple, quince and pear. This wine is fresh and clean in the mouth with excellent acidity, good structure and a strong finish.” –Winemaker notes. New vintage.

2015 Garofoli Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi Podium $14.99/$10.29/$9.26

“An elegant, creamy white, backed by sleek, citrusy acidity, this shows a subtle mix of poached pear, grated ginger and stony mineral flavors, accented by hints of crushed almond. Drink now through 2020. #92 Wine Spectator Top 100 2017.” 90 points. New item. This was a big hit with our tasting panel.
