New Great Value Case - The Whites (3rd Edition)
Fernlands Sauvignon Blanc (New Zealand) – A true and classic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc that offers exotic aromas of passion fruit & guava, you’ll also find hints of lime and lemon and ruby red grapefruit.
Pertico Pinot Grigio (Italy) – Castelfeder grows some of the best Pinot Grigio fruit high in the Alto Adige region of Italy. They sell fruit to many top producers, but keep their favorite lots for themselves. Light green luster runs through the radiant straw-yellow color of this wine, whose aroma is rich in fruits, the most striking of which are pears and apples.
Colossal Reserve White (Portugal) – A blend of Chardonnay and the local Arinto varietal this refreshing white is perfect for NC’s hot and humid summer. A touch of wood aging has given this wine extra ripeness and a spicy character. It is full and youthful, with its juicy white fruit flavors still coming together. The blend of Chardonnay and Arinto melds richness and freshness.
Odisea “Dream” Albarino (California) – Spain’s Albarino varietal is finding increased popularity among winemakers in California and we love the richness and texture that winemaker Adam Webb’s version has. Opens with inviting aromatics of citrus blossom, wild flowers followed by notes of grassy meadow, ripe pear, kaffir lime and a touch of wet stone. Pommelo, kiwi, grapefruit and pineapple fruit flavors continue on the palate.
Yalumba “Y” Series Viognier (Australia) – A few years ago, Viognier seemed to be poised to become the “next big thing” in the white wine world. The buzz around the varietal seems to have waned recently, but if there were more incredibly well made and well priced versions of the varietal like Yalumba’s “Y” Series it would more popular than Pinot Grigio and Sauvignon Blanc (but not likely to knock Queen Chardonnay off her throne). There are lovely aromas of orange blossom, fresh ginger, hints of honeysuckle and white flowers. The palate has fresh pineapple, Chinese white tea and dried figs leading to a creamy mid palate with a silky, textural finish. The wild fermentation and lees ageing gives the wine an extra level of complexity on the palate that belies its age.
- Stillman Street Chardonnay (California) - A delicious, subtly oaked (it spent eight months in wood) version of Chardonnay, the Stillman Street offers up notes of tangerine oil, lemon butter and tropical fruit in a medium-bodied, pure, fruity, dry style.
