2016 Gooseneck Pinot Grigio, Veneto, Italy
This traditional Italian wine is a blend of grapes from vineyards that are located in the Veneto region. The individual lots of hand-harvested Pinot Grigio grapes are gently whole cluster pressed to minimize any color or harsh tannin extraction, then racked to stainless steel tanks for a cold fermentation. Inviting aromas of honeysuckle, peach and lychee nut. The mouth feel is of integrated and rich fruit. Flavors of lime, nectarine, and melon are complemented by clean, refreshing flavors of lemon and peach with a round mouth-feel and a crisp, lingering finish. All with a zesty and clean acidity.

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 Chalk Hill Chardonnay, Sonoma County, California
Barrel fermentation in new and seasoned French oak added toasty vanilla and spice complexities. In the glass, the wine is both creamy and crisp, with flavors of golden delicious apple, Meyer lemon, baking spices with a hint of minerality on the long finish.

Critical Acclaim 2014 – Wilfred Wong of 88Points
The 2014 Rodney Strong Chalk Hill Chardonnay brings beautifully ripened fruit to the fore, with a touch of sweet oak and pleasing roundness. Ripe apple and creamed corn in the nose, friendly and inviting, pretty conventional in style; medium bodied, well-textured on the palate, with a pronounced roundness; dry, modest acidity or perhaps a hint of threshold sugar, good balance; appealing ripe fruit and creamy oak in the flavors; medium finish, smooth easy aftertaste.
