2015 Wither Hills Sauvignon Blanc, Marlborough, New Zealand
Distinctly Marlborough, this Sauvignon Blanc exudes vibrant ripe citrus notes, crunchy greens and hints of tropical guava on the nose. The palate is refined and elegant with superb natural fruit weight providing a juicy core of layered fruit, entwined with a salty textural acidity, vibrant citrus pith and a moreish dry chalky finish.

Critical Acclaim 2015 – Natalie MacLean 90 Points
Grassy, herbal and terrifically refreshing! Vibrant tropical fruit and lime citrus on the nose of this mouth-watering New Zealand white wine made from Sauvignon Blanc grapes. Pair with shellfish.

2014 Tellus Chardonnay, Umbria, Italy
Latin for Earth, expect a crisp reference to citric fruits such as lemons and orchard fruits such as apples to define the aromas and palate impressions. Unoaked Chardonnay offers delightful play around the table. Citric and orchard fruits together with moderate acidity and round mouthfeel complement a range of both raw and cooked seafood.

Critical Acclaim 2014 – Wine Advocate 88 Points
Here’s a new wine from Falesco. This Chardonnay is born from limestone rich soils and is fermented in oak. The wine opens to fragrant tones of yellow flower, stone fruit and Golden Delicious apple.

2014 Rodney Strong Russian River Valley Pinot Noir, Sonoma County, California
The 2014 Estate Russian River Valley Pinot Noir has lovely aromas of red fruit, floral and earth. With a soft and silky texture, on the palate cherry, cranberry, and baking spice characteristics shine through with balance, acidity and a nice lingering finish. This medium bodied wine was aged for 15 months in small French oak barrels, which added a hint of toasty vanilla and spice complexity.

2015 Andeluna 1300 Malbec, Mendoza, Argentina
Moderate use of neutral French and American oak is employed to allow the fresh berry character of the Malbec grapes to come shining through.  Intense violet color with aromas of red fruits, flowers and subtle toasty nuances. Fresh, soft and balanced on the palate. Expressive of the area.

Critical Acclaim 2015 – James Suckling 90 Points
A red with dried dark berry, salt and terra-cotta. Full to medium body, fine tannins and a fresh finish.
