White Wine by Domaine Faiveley from Burgundy, France - regions. Pale yellow-gold color, clear and bright. Opens up with notes of exotic fruits (pineapple and passion fruit), citrus fruits (limes) and white peaches. Fresh and balanced on the palate. The acidity reinforces the minerality of this wine. The finish is long-lasting, clean and refreshing.
White Wine by Vocoret from Burgundy, France - regions. The Kimmeridgian (limestone-rich) soils that run through Chablis give the wines their characteristic minerality, which can also be described as gunflint, chalk and, in the wines of Vocoret & Fils, the taste of a wet stone. The grapes were grown on chalky hillsides of Kimmeridgian limestone mixed with Portlandian clay. This wine captures the typical Chablis character with steely minerality, focused citrus expression and firm acidity.
White Wine by Clos Du Val from Carneros, California. This Chardonnay is pale gold in color and opens with aromas of fresh apple, brioche, pear and pineapple. It is full bodied and displays flavors of tropical fruit, citrus and vanilla. The mouthfeel is silky, yet vibrant and has a long, lingering finish. It is a perfect accompaniment to poultry, seafood or for sipping on its own.
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.
