LEVEL (1) ALL WHITE WINES

 

DOGWOOD & THISTLE 2020 MENDOCINO SAUVIGNON BLANC   

Dogwood & Thistle Mendocino Sauvignon Blanc 2020 opens with beautiful floral notes of elderflower and orange blossom, followed by ripe fruit aromas of grapefruit, Meyer lemon, green mango, and gooseberries. The wine is crisp and vibrant on the palate with refreshing acidity and snappy, bright fruit flavors, perfect for sipping and enjoying on a warm summer afternoon or evening, and maybe even a Sunday morning.” 94 points

 

2019 MARTIN RAY SANTA CRUZ MOUNTAINS CHARDONNAY

“Mouthwateringly intense aromas of salted butter and toast. Lemon curd, grilled pear, hazelnut and chalk, too. It’s medium-to full-bodied with tangy acidity and a toasty, saline finish. Hard to resist. Drink or hold. Screw cap.”
93 Points

 

2013 LUCIEN ALBRECHT 1698 BRUT (CHARDONNAY) CREMANT D’ALSACE

Ripe yellow apple and a vanilla dominate the nose. This richness continues on the palate, with its full flavor and gently fizzing bubbles. It’s a rich and rounded, yet dry and fresh wine. Consider this with food rather than as an aperitif. Lovely now, it is sure to evolve. Drink now-2025” 92 Points

2016 DOMAINE JOLLY ET FILS PETIT CHABLIS

“The 2016 Petit Chablis has a pretty bouquet with hints of praline complementing the citrus fruit, light smoky aromas emerging with further aeration. The palate is well balanced with a fine line of acidity, quite powerful on the backpalate with a hint of mango and passion fruit towards the finish. Quite an ambitious Petit Chablis and you know, it just about pulls it off.”
88 Points

2020 SKINNER EL DORADO GRENACHE BLANC

Foothill Wine Festival 2021
Double Gold Medal
Best of Show – White Wine
100 Points
“The aromatics on the 2020 Grenache Blanc are punchy and brilliant, as the nose suggests a wine of tremendous posture. The first impression is crushed limestone and white flowers, giving way to underpinnings of blood orange, honeysuckle and sandalwood. This wine’s clean, platinum hue and lithe aromatics only begin to tell the story of its deep, complex palate presence of weight and electric tension; a tight balance of flowers, fruit and dirt, this is a real testament to the transcendence of El Dorado-grown white Rhônes.”

2019 RAPAURA SPRINGS RESERVE MARLBOROUGH SAUVIGNON BLANC

“Pungently aromatic sauvignon blanc with impressively intense passion fruit, red capsicum and nectarine flavours. A smooth-textured wine that practically defines Marlborough sauvignon blanc. Deliciously drinkable. Great value.”
