Livio Felluga Vertigo Bianca 2019
Livio Felluga who is one of the most iconic Northern Italian white wine producers makes this delicious and mineral driven Chardonnay and Ribolla Gialla blend. This is a creamy and very well-executed blend of Chardonnay and Ribolla Gialla that opens with exciting aromas of stone fruit, citrus and honey, plus tiny touches of candy and butterscotch (a common aromatic characteristic of Ribolla Gialla). Light, crisp, and citrusy with great minerality. An outstanding value!

Eyrie Pinot Gris 2020, Dundee Hills, Oregon, USA$29.00
In the winter of 1965, after earning a degree in viticulture and enology from UC/Davis, and research in Europe, 25-year old David Lett moved to Oregon “with 3,000 grape cuttings and a theory”. It was the first planting of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and related varieties in the Willamette Valley, and the first Pinot Gris in America. The Eyrie Vineyards, founded by David and Diana Lett in 1966, is located in the Red Hills of Dundee, about 30 miles southwest of Portland. It was named for the red-tailed hawks who make their home (EYE-ree) in the fir trees at the top of the vineyard. The Eyrie Vineyards Pinot Gris 2020 offers a medium gold color and intriguing aromas of straw, mango, tangerine and melon, with notes of jasmine and camellia, smoke and loam; after a few minutes in the glass, it unfolds hints of crystallized ginger and candied quince. The wine is supple, almost lush with slightly roasted and quite spicy stone-fruit flavors, tempered by star-bright acidity and a faceted limestone element. The finish brings in some chastening grapefruit astringency.
Conundrum White 2020$23.00
Blending wines was almost unthinkable when Conundrum White was born more than 25 years ago. Since then, this wine has attracted a loyal following and remains as inventive as ever. While the exact blend is under wraps, every vintage includes Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, Muscat Canelli, and Viognier. Conundrum White is amazingly versatile, with intriguing tropical notes and natural acidity. Best served chilled. A light straw color, the 2020 vintage features scents of honeysuckle, wildflowers and lemon blossoms, layered with star fruit, honeydew and a trace of flinty gunpowder. Entry is crisp, with a vibrant acidity that flows into a rich roundness on the mid-palate. Citrus and pear mingle with exotic flavors of mango, coconut, and pineapple. This wine’s structure and texture give it multiple dimensions – lush yet fresh, subtle yet rich. A kick of bright acidity on the finish underscores its lively character, while notes of ripe fruit entice you back for another sip.
“I find it hard to believe that this wine has been around for more than a quarter of a century. I was there and tasted the first Conundrum, and I found it quite fascinating then It was a white wine of a different sort and wine that I needed a little time before understanding it. Aromatic and tantalizing, Conundrum has always been a unique wine. The 2016 vintage is quite appealing. Its aromas and flavors of fragrant fruit, bright candy, and ripe melon make it a wine that would pair superbly with hot, spicy, and sweet dishes. Try it with a roast chicken breast accented with pickled scallions, water chestnuts, celery, cilantro, and a splash of chili oil.” Wilfred Wong
