Quinta Da Raza Vinho Verde 2015 Product #30829 (In Stock)
Quinta Da Raza Vinho Verde 2015 Quinta Da Raza Vinho Verde 2015

This was good on release but - believe it or not - it's even better now!  Just explosively aromatic and flavorful with apricot and passionfruit at the core and a bite of just picked Granny Smith apple at the end.  There's a tiny prickle of gas on the finish but mainly loads of zesty fruit.  A 50/35 blend of Arinto and Azal, with 15% Trajadura, unoaked and coming in at 11.5% alcohol.

Le Chaz Rouge Pays d'Oc 2015 Product #31323 (In Stock)

A great French "country wine" from Languedoc, this blends Grenache, Cabernet Sauivignon, Cinsault and Merlot. It's a quaffer, full of juicy blackberry and black raspberry fruit with fresh acids and lightly dusty tannins.  Give it a light chill and it makes perfect pre-dinner or lunch sipper.  Let it warm up and the fruit comes to the fore and the wine just sings with anything from pizza to burgers or sausages.  Fun, tasty, stuff.

Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro Schiava 2015 Product #30795 (In Stock)
Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro Schiava  2015 Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro Schiava  2015

Schiava (also called Vernatsch or Trollinger) was actually the region’s most planted grape for many years – with 60% of total vineyard area – until Pinot Grigio and Chardonnay began to supplant it.  That’s too bad, because the light, crisp, and juicy red wines this local grape makes are fun to drink and pair well with a wide range of foods.

Reflecting the cultural and linguistic diversity of Alto Adige, the Schiava grape is called “Kalterersee” in the local dialect of the region around Lake Caldaro.  Grapes for this beauty grew on loamy, limestone gravel soils at 230-450 meters above the Lake and were fermented and aged entirely in tank. A delicious farmhouse red, loaded with red berry fruit, a hint of smoke, and a bright gentle finish.  Kind of like a ripe Chinon (but without the herbal notes), this is delicious with a light chill and shines with everyday foods and cured meats.  A tad more rich and round in the warm 2015 harvest, but still a refreshingly great value!

J. Mourat Chenin - Chardonnay Val De Loire 2015 Product #30660 (In Stock)
J. Mourat Chenin - Chardonnay Val De Loire 2015 J. Mourat Chenin - Chardonnay Val De Loire 2015

A rich but vibrant white made from the Loire Valley’s most important white grape – the Chenin Blanc made famous by Vouvray – and Burgundy’s Chardonnay grape, which has thrived in warmer spots here for years.  The vineyards are in the Fiefs Vendeens AOC, just a few miles inland from the Atlantic Ocean.  The balance of warm Maritime sunshine and brisk Atlantic breezes allow the grapes to ripen fully while retaining plenty of summer refreshment value and cut.

Delivers a wild blend of citrus (white grapefruit and lemon rind) aromas with accents of tree fruits like apples and peaches. On the palate it’s wonderfully fresh and bright from first to last, with notes of peach, apricot and apple lingering under zesty lime juice acidity.  A joyful wine of great distinction to simply sip or pair with summer salads and seafood.

Here's a delicious white Rhone from a biodynamic working in a great, great, vintage.

Concentrated, but not heavy, it's lovely to sip and will sing with fish or salads.

A sizzling and delicious blend of Vermentino and Verdicchio that would cost twice as much from Tuscany - thank goodness for Umbrian value!  Loaded with peach and apricot fruit and lifted by a dash of green citrus zest, this is fresh and fruit-filled enough for casual sipping with the sneaky structure that will sing with seafood, salads and fresh cheeses.  Delicious and fun and fine value.

Palazzone Orvieto Classico Vignarco 2015 Product #31231 (In Stock)
Palazzone Orvieto Classico Vignarco 2015 Palazzone Orvieto Classico Vignarco 2015

We've featured Palazzone's other Orvietos before, but this year it was the Classico that really grabbed our attention.  It's a traditional blend of 50% Procanico, 30% Grechetto and dollops of Verdello, Drupeggio and Malvasia that comes together to deliver boatloads of classic Orvieto character.  What's that, you ask?  Try aromas and flavors of bright, fresh, sweet lemon juice with a twist of fennel frond and squeeze of honeysuckle.  Not a "light, crisp, neutral" Italian white, this sports big flavors and a rich, mouth-coating, texture and a long, mouthwatering, finish of lemon oil, honeysuckle, and mineral flavors lingering nicely.  There's enough body and interest and fruit to make this a joy to drink solo and it will sing with salads, seafood, and cheese.  A winning value that outperforms many wines at 2x the price.

Ch De La Chesnaie Muscadet Chereau Carre 2015 Product #31485 (In Stock)
Ch De La Chesnaie Muscadet Chereau Carre 2015 Ch De La Chesnaie Muscadet Chereau Carre 2015

A classic Muscadet from from the exciting 2015 vintage. Bold, saline, aromas of green apple, citrus and stone lead to a fresh, salty, palate with lean, green, fruit, tons of minerality, and a pulsing energy that just won't quit.  Finishes long and pure and clean with notes of lime, mineral, and more lingering on and on.  The warm vintage gives a bit more heft than usual, but still plenty of refreshing cut.

Bedouet Clos Des Grands Primos Muscadet Sevre Et Maine 2015 Product #30753 (In Stock)
Bedouet Clos Des Grands Primos Muscadet Sevre Et Maine  2015 Bedouet Clos Des Grands Primos Muscadet Sevre Et Maine  2015

Having converted his Clos des Grand Primos vineyard to certified organic farming, Michel Bedouet is delivering on Muscadet’s potential.  The vineyard is a rocky mess of granite, schist and gneiss - no fun to farm, but wonderful for Muscadet's Melon de Bourgogne grape.  The 2015 delivers all the saline minerality and chiseled cut you'd expect from fine Muscade, but also a generous roundness to the texture and a plenty of ripe apple and tangy lemon-lime fruit. You’ll taste the benefits of extended aging on the lees – spent yeast cells left after fermentation – in the wine’s wet stone and chalk minerality, but love how the fresh fruit holds center stage and pumps on through a long finish of lemon, apple, lime zest and fresh thyme.  Sure, it’s a great wine for shellfish, but you’ll love it with almost any summertime dish or simply all on its own.

Volpetti Cesanese 2015 Product #31710 (In Stock)
Volpetti Cesanese 2015 Volpetti Cesanese 2015

Even bigger, bolder, more fruit filled, and even more delicious than before.  From vineyards around Rome, the Volpetti packs a punch of lush dark damson plum and black cherry fruit with accents of earth and spice.  A short stay in old oak barrels softens the tannins and adds a hint of sweet balsamic.  Drink this a touch cool with pizza margherita, a bowl of pasta in red sauce, or even a big, juicy, burger and you'll be very, very, happy!

Scarpetta Prosecco Brut NV Product #31419 (In Stock)
Scarpetta Prosecco Brut NV Scarpetta Prosecco Brut NV

If you're writing too many words (or thinking too hard about) Prosecco, then you're probably doing something wrong.  This is the kind of Prosecco Italians drink in the afternoon or during the run up to dinner, a crisp, clean, glass of fizz that enlivens the spirits and whets the appetite.  Ripe peach and pear fruit hold center stage with a spice note adding interest.  Fruity, frothy, fun.

Fracchia Voulet Malvasia Di Casorzo D'asti 2015 Fracchia Voulet Malvasia Di Casorzo D'asti 2015

This delicious frizzante wine is a rare version of red Malvasia, made with a touch of sweetness and a light, frothy, sparkle. As The Washington Post’s Dave McIntyre said about the 2011, “This delightful little frizzante red from Piedmont is a cousin to Brachetto d’Acqui, and equal to Brachetto in its affinity for chocolate."  As always, the lightly sweet red raspberry and strawberry fruit is a delight!

Bodegas Virgen De La Sierra Macabeo Albada 2015 Product #30902 (In Stock)
Bodegas Virgen De La Sierra Macabeo Albada 2015 Bodegas Virgen De La Sierra Macabeo Albada 2015

Better known under it's Rioja name of Viura, Macabeo flies under the radar as a main or blending grape in white Rioja, Cava, and other regional wines.  British Master of Wine Jancis Robinson has dubbed it "the Cinderella grape" in recognition of the way Macabeo is coming out of the shadows now and being allowed to shine on it's own.

This is a fine example from 35 year-old vines in Calatayud, not far from Rioja. You'll find Macabeo's signature notes of peach, orange, and almond here lifted by a note of juicy lemon.  Rich and creamy on the palate with good weight and a nice, refreshing, dusty minerality on the generous finish.  This will be especially delicious with fresh water fish done with butter and nuts or even with richer dishes like salmon.

Mas De Daumas Pont De Gassac Blanc 2015 Mas De Daumas Pont De Gassac Blanc 2015

From the estate often called the "Lafite of the Languedoc" comes this zesty, rich, blend of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Grenache Blanc made all in tank. There's a strong Earl Grey note to the floral and stone fruit aromas, and the bergamot carries on through the rich and complex flavors of citrus, peach, and tea.  Dry and dusty on the finish, the wine keeps changing and fascinating from first sip to last.

A simply fantastic Saove from 100% estate-grown Garganega, Soave’s best grape, hand harvested and vinified in temperature-controlled stainless steel.  It's loaded with ripe lemon, green melon, and chamomile aromas and flavors with just a hint of Soave's traditional bitter almond at the end.  Mouthfilling but super fresh with a very long finish leaving lemon, green melon, and almond flavors lingering.  Highly recommended as a terrific, delicious, value.

A fresh, interesting Alsace blend of Auxerrois, Muller-Thurgau, Pinot Gris and Gewurztraminer, this opens with scents of spiced pears, fresh golden delicious apples, and soft herbs. On the palate it's a good deal more tart, with granny smith apple flavors and a tang of lemon through the mid-palate. Aromatic and interesting without being cloying, this would be great with all kids of seafood.

La Mondianese Grignolino d' Asti 2015 Product #31635 (In Stock)
La Mondianese Grignolino d' Asti 2015 La Mondianese Grignolino d' Asti 2015

What is Grignolino?  A red wine grape from Piemonte, Italy, where the root name – grignole – means “many pips”, referring to the many seeds found in this rarely seen grape.  It’s prone to being tough and tannic, but not here.  Diane thought this tasted like “Pinot Noir and Sangiovese had a baby”, and there's definitely something to that.  In any event, it’s a lightly colored and textured wine that opens with aromas of sweet cherry, red berries, and a hint of lavender.  In the mouth the fruit is bright and juicy and a touch of earthiness comes up at the end.  Light enough to drink with fish or to take a chill for solo sipping.

The main white grape used in Umbria's Orvieto, here Grechetto gets a little extra bump from 10% Trebbiano Spoletino.  And an even bigger bump from the fantastic 2015 harvest, which gives this year's release remarkable volume and depth.  Bright, fresh, aromas of lemon oil, fennel frond, peach and a hint of crushed herb.  Then big, bold, flavors of fresh pineapple, pear and lemon pulp that really fill your mouth and are then scrubbed up by a bright, salty mineral and lemon zest, finish.  This is a lot of wine for the money!

Want to taste what a talented young winemaker can do with 50 year-old Melon de Bourgogne on the stony soils of Muscadet, not far from the Atlantic Ocean in western France?  Well, you should!  Because this is about as delicious as Muscadet gets.  Vibrand aromas of stone and citrus fruit with something salty in the back lead to a big mouthfull of tangy fruit, salty stone, and the richness that comes with 8 months on the fine lees stirred every day.  For shellfish, of course, but also just to drink.
