Capo Creek Grenache Blanc 2017
Rich and well balanced with the perfect amount of acidity for pairing with high flavored foods, but not too much to make you want to grab your TUMS (T). This selection is so approachable that even the non-white lovers become fans. We like it with Mexican, especially Shrimp Diablo. But then again, we like everything with Mexican.
Monte Volpe Pinot Gris 2016$15.00Add to cart
With a nod to our rich Italian heritage in America, Monte Volpe Winery produces a wonderful Pinot Grigio. Monte Volpe is the oldest producer of Pinot Grigio in California. Vineyards: The Monte Volpe Pinot Grigio grapes come from the Nube Bianco Vineyard (100% of the blend) in the eastside of Potter Valley at the headwaters of the Russian River at 1000 ft. elevation. This blend has produced a rich, floral wine with aromas of tropical fruits, cantaloupe melon, and multi-colored Jonathan apple with a hint of wet stone. A lively mouthful of spicy apple and stony minerality is balanced by crisp acidity throughout the finish. Excellent as an apperitivo or serve with seared scallops with Beurre blanc sauce, grilled swordfish or chicken piccata.
Andrew Murray Enchante 2016$28.00Add to cart
Andrew Murray fell in love with the emerging Rhône varieties, Syrah and Viognier, in the late 1980’s while traveling through France’s Rhône Valley. Returning to the states, he earned a bachelor’s degree in viticulture and enology from UC Davis’ renowned wine program, then founded his eponymous Santa Ynez winery and vineyard. This uncompromising winemaker’s lucid philosophy is summarized succinctly in three words: Passion – Evolution – Wisdom; the Passion of an unflagging love affair with Rhône varieties; the Evolution of winemaking techniques where even the most subtle nuance is divined from each new vintage; and the Wisdom gained with 20 years of winemaking experience.
The French say “Enchanté” when they greet each other. Andrew Murray has named the Estate-Grown, 2016 Enchante white blend of Grenache Blanc and Roussanne after this expression. These two varieties are truly yin and yang. Roussanne is rich and unctuous, while Grenache Blanc is bright and racy. The two complement each other perfectly! Buy now for $28.00
