White Wine by Gregory Graham from North Coast, California. As soon as the cap is opened the aromas of honeysuckle and orange blossoms fill the immediate area. The wine is big on flavors of tart apple with a lively texture that yields to the freshness and pleasure of a light Muscat dessert wine. Serve this wine lightly chilled with simple clean desserts like ripe peaches and cream or as an accompaniment to herbed goat cheese and almonds.
White Wine by Macauley from Russian River, California. In our 2014 vintage, Macauley has sourced some of the best Chardonnay vineyards that Russian River has to offer. Formerly known as the Macauley Dutton Ranch Chardonnay, the 2014 Macauley Russian River Valley Chardonnay is lighter-bodied than its predecessors. It is uniquely characterized by notes of wet river stone and a crisp, refreshing finish. Retaining this mineral-feel is achieved by aging the Chardonnay for 10 months in three completely different types of vessel: French oak, stainless steel and concrete. Concrete supports those cold wet stone and earthy notes while stainless steel barriques contain the raciness of the wine. The new French oak adds only a touch of wood to the bouquet- at just 6 percent. Bottled with gentle filtration, and a fine for polish, this Chardonnay blossoms with elegant citrus, honeysuckle, melon, a touch of green apple and very subtle notes of butterscotch.
White Wine by Hugel from Alsace, France - regions. Hugel's Jubilee are sourced exclusively from family owned Grand Cru vineyards in the top terroirs in Alsace. Great classic Gewurztraminer which will gain in complexity and spiciness for 8 years or more. Its suave and long complex aftertaste will make it the ideal partner to strong cheeses and spicy dishes.
White Wine by Prager from Austria, European. Austrian Riesling is often defined by high levels of dry extract thanks to a lengthy ripening period and a pleasing freshness due to dramatic temperature swings between day and night. Steinriegl's uniquely cool microclimate results in wines of elevated aroma and focused acidity, and its limestone soil provides compact structure and a flavor that is distinctive among Wachau Rieslings. Riesling's high acidity makes it one of the most versatile wines at the table. Riesling can be used to cut the fattiness of foods such as pork or sausages and can tame a certain amount of saltiness. Conversely, it can highlight foods such as fish or vegetables in the same way a squeeze of lemon or a vinaigrette might.
White Wine by Castello del Poggio from Piedmont, Italy. Straw-yellow with golden reflections and a delicate mousse. Fruity and very inviting, with intense scents of peaches and exotic fruit. Fresh and pleasantly sweet with a taste that reveals its varietal characteristic.
White Wine by Annabella from Napa Valley, California. The Annabella 2014 Napa Valley Chardonnay is a bright, light straw color in the glass. Youthful but sophisticated, the wine entices with aromas of honeydew melon, juicy tangerine, and a slight hint of butterscotch. In the mouth, the wine strikes an impossible balance between voluptuous and delicate - with a silky, weighty mouth feel playing counterpoint to fine-spun flavors of citrus blossom and a hint of cinnamon. The slight structure provided by oak frames the wine's delicacy perfectly, providing length and depth to its elegance. Enjoy this wine with butter sauteed sea scallops, served with an arugula salad with goat cheese and mandarin oranges.

White Wine by Louis Latour from Burgundy, France - regions. The Meursault 1er Cru Goutte d'Or 2012 is a pretty pale yellow colour. Generous and powerful, it reveals aromas of vanilla and star anise on the nose. It has good length with a slightly oaky finish. Situated just south of Volnay and Pommard in the Cote de Beaune, Meursault is the most extensive southerly white wine commune of the Cote-d'Or. Meursault Goutte d'Or is the first Premier Cru found when leaving the village in the direction of Puligny-Montrachet. The parcel of vines was given this name ( drop of gold') because of the quantity of flint in the soil. These flints have both the shape and colour of drops of gold'. Entirely like the drops of wine which this land produces! The wine itself is all one would expect it to be with a powerful nose and rich palate. The wine prefered by Thomas Jefferson. Pair with Vol-au-Vent, rump of veal, freshwater pike, morels, or cheese.

White Wine by Sojourn from Sonoma County, California. Our 2013 Sonoma Coast Chardonnay is a blend of several unique lots from three distinct vineyards spanning this cool-climate appellation. We sourced grapes from Sangiacomo, Durell and Campbell Ranch vineyards, spanning the far reaches of the Sonoma Coast appellation. Dry weather in both winter and spring resulted in smaller berry sizes with high levels of concentration and detailed aromatics. A lovely nose of stone fruit, apples and white flowers lead to rich flavors and an intriguing mix of depth and vibrancy on the palate. Refreshing and layered, this wine is a fabulous blend of old-world style and new-world eloquence. It is a pleasure to drink, with wonderful fruit, a touch of minerality, and crisp acidity that lengthens the finish. Each component of the blend was fermented separately in French oak barrels utilizing 30% new oak.

White Wine by Nielson by Byron from Santa Maria Valley, California. The winery barrel ferments Chardonnay from select vineyards within the Santa Maria Valley appellation.

White Wine by Thomas George from Russian River, California. Aromas of star fruit, lemon, banana and hazelnut offer a classic expression of Russian River Valley Chardonnay.
