Bacchus 2018 California Chardonnay

A really lovely bottling of California sunshine, this Chardonnay from Bacchus is fruit-forward, buttery and easy drinking. Enjoy with roast chicken or creamy pasta dishes. Bacchus is a project from winemaker and wine director David Gordon who set out to create high quality wines at a great value that showcased the best of California vineyards.  I'm not saying you should sneak this into a movie theatre to make the perfect pairing for popcorn, but I'm also not *not* saying that..Michelle DeWyngaert

Banyan 2018 Monterey County Gewürztraminer

This is a Gewürztraminer that might just change a few hearts and minds about the grape. In the wrong hands, Gewürztraminer can become cloying and overpowering with the scent of Grandma's potpourri, but this wine from Kenny Likitprakong shows some serious restraint. Sourced entirely from the Rancho Llegado vineyard in Monterey County, the frequent cool winds of the area maintain the much needed acidity to balance this wine. Banyan was designed by Kenny and his father with their Thai heritage in mind, and as such this Gewürztraminer is the perfect pairing for South-east Asian cuisine or anything with a bit of spice to it. Though it is fermented nearly dry, it maintains a softness with notes of ripe nectarine, a touch of tropical fruit, sage, and bright, fresh gardenia blossoms. Michelle DeWyngaert

Edmunds St. John 2018 El Dorado County Heart of Gold

In addition to perfectly elegant, age-worthy reds, Steve Edmunds produces one of California's lightest, purest white wines from Vermentino and Grenache Blanc. Heart of Gold exudes fresh white florals, mineral water, and tingly  orchard fruit aromas; flavors are bright and defined, graceful and deeply mineral, with gentle rays of citrus pith and crisp pear, golden apple, and yellow peach. Acidity is abundant and well-integated. AR

Eminence Road 2018 Seneca Lake Sparkling Riesling

A fun, unique example of Finger Lakes Riesling form our friend Andrew Scott of Eminence Road! This sparkling Riesling from the Lambs Quarter's Vineyard is destemmed and then left on the skins for 10 days to create a richer mouthfeel. After a long fermentation, the wine is racked from the lees, but remains unfined and unfiltered. The nose is full of ripe peach and tangerine, and on the palate is ripe and fresh tangerine and apple cider with a dry, textured finish. Great as an aperitif or with stronger cheeses!

Ghostwriter 2017 Santa Cruz Mountains Chardonnay

The Ghostwriter label was created when Kenny Likitprakong took over the farming at the Woodruff Vineyard and Aptos Creek, and the project names implies that these are wines that will speak for themselves, without the ego of the "author" getting in the way. This is balanced, finessed version of Santa Cruz Chardonnay. The 2017 vintage of Ghostwriter came mostly from the Woodruff Vineyard, a dry-farmed hillside planted in 1978. At under 13% ABV, Kenny has captured the California sunshine without being overwrought by it. The nose has a pleasant herbal quality, like fresh sage, mixed with lemon cream, yellow apple, and a hint of smoke. The neutral oak barrel aging adds richness and texture without the typical baking spice notes. Try this with white fish in a lemon butter sauce, chicken dishes, or lighter cheeses!

La Clarine Farm 2018 Sierra Foothills Viognier

This beautiful California Viognier is more reminiscent of its Rhône iteration than many other examples I've had from the sunshine state. Blended from two vineyards, Cedarville on decomposed granite, and the famed Sumu Kaw vineyard on volcanic soils. They don't usually make a varietal Viognier at La Clarine Farms, but the 2018 vintage was so good it spoke for itself. Everything you want from this grape on the nose: a field of fresh white and yellow flowers, soft herbs, and a perfectly balanced acidity on the palate with a waxy, but not oily texture.

Les Pervenches 2018 Farnham - Quebec Macpel Seyval

For the first time Les Pervenches has finally been imported to the US after gaining much-deserved acclaim throughout Canada. Les Pervenches is one of the first Canadian wineries using certified Biodynamic grapes (no small feat in a place like Quebec) and vinifying with native yeasts and no additives, including SO2. Hybrid grapes tend to have a bad reputation for displaying a kind of "foxy" odor, but when you're working vines through very harsh winters, hearty grapes like Seyval can be a great option. Les Pervenches has bottled this Seyval after 7 days of maceration. The nose is a beautiful blend of lemon oil, fresh herbs, and almond blossoms and the palate just a slight grip to it with an almond skin finish. Michelle DeWyngaert

Maître de Chai 2018 Calaveras County Rorick Vineyard Chardonnay

Maître de Chai sources this beautiful Chardonnay from the Rorick Vineyard in Calaveras County of the Sierra Foothills AVA. Way up at 2000 ft above sea-level, Matthew Rorick farms these 45-year-old vines on steep slopes of blue limestone and schist. The farming is done all organically and the wines are made with natural yeast fermentation, which, with this vintage, meant that there was no malo-lactic fermentation. The wine is then filtered to avoid refermentation and reduce the need for heavy-sulfuring at bottling but never fined. Between the elevation of the vines, the limestone, and the lack of malo-lactic fermentation, this wine is super fresh and vibrant. Notes of ripe green and yellow apple mix with dried hay, and a touch of honey. As with all of Maître de Chai's wines, the style is a return to the more restrained, elegant style of winemaking of their predecessors from the '60s and '70s. Michelle DeWyngaert

Maître de Chai 2018 Sonoma Valley Herron Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc

California Sauvignon Blanc has a reputation for being either overly ripe or overly oaked, but in the hands of the Maître de Chai winemakers and with 50-year-old vines, it can show remarkable restraint and complexity. The Herron Vineyard in Sonoma Valley was planted in 1969 by an enthusiastic teenager from Oaxaca, Rudy Rodriguez, and has been farmed organically ever since by Rudy's family and Phyllis and Wynne Herron, the current owners. The soils are never tilled and only occasionally mowed to maintain the health of the soil and intricate micro-biome of the vineyard. Today the vines are super low-yielding creating concentrated, flavorful Sauvignon Blanc. The nose displays a mix of wet stone, nectarine, lime, and a touch of lemongrass. On the palate, the wine shows ripe pear and pink grapefruit with plenty of acidity, but with softened, rounded edges owing to the neutral barrel fermentation and élevage. Michelle DeWyngaert

Pearl Morissette 2017 Niagara Escarpment Irreverence Blanc

Francois Morissette is one of the most creative and uncompromising producers making wine in Canada. His Irrévérence Blanc is a new cuvée exploring skin contact aromatic white grapes. 64% Riesling, 22% Chardonnay, and 14% Gewurztraminer, each of these grapes was fermented separately and using very different methods. The Riesling was fermented in stainless steel, the Chardonnay was fermented in concrete and spent 6 months in foudre, and the Gewurztraminer was fermented on the skins in qvevri for six months. After blending, another three months were spent in foudre before the wine was bottled unfined and unfiltered. The Gewurztraminer marks its territory with light, delicate tannins and a distinct but not overbearing floral aroma, and the Riesling gives fantastic citric energy and tension. The Chardonnay insinuates itself more subtly, lending a certain breadth of texture, a structural elegance, and ephemeral wisps of orchard fruits to the long finish. This is a perfect aperitif wine that is taking the wine bars of Toronto by storm. Andrew Farquhar

Precedent 2014 Cienega Valley Wirz Vineyard Old Vine White Wine

Precedent is the label of Nathan Kandler, longtime winegrower at Thomas Fogarty in the Santa Cruz Mountains, a renowned destination for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Precedent illustrates Kandler's versatility and curiosity and has introduced us to some truly unique California vineyard sites. Wirz Vineyard is home to 60+ year-old dry farmed, head-trained Riesling on decomposed granite over limestone in the Gabilan mountains. We usually have an off-dry Riesling on the table, but I'm happy to go in a drier direction in this case...concentrated, gleaming apricot, citrus rind, and tropical fruit is laced with gritty, long minerality and backed by supple texture and acidic tension. Terrific with herbed root vegetables and citrus glazed poultry or fish and anything peppery or spicy. Ariana Rolich

Revik 2017 Napa Valley Coombsville Saphi Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc

Revik Wine Co. is the passion project of two married couples who released their first vintage this past summer. This is a fantastic Sauvignon Blanc that positions itself at the forefront of a new wave of dynamic, elegantly structured, complex Sauvignon Blancs coming from the West Coast. Made with fruit sourced from the Saphi Vineyard in Coombsville (Revik winemaker Phil Holbrook's dry-farmed home vineyard), this wine was aged in both stainless steel and neutral oak, with 8 months on the lees. Unfined and unfiltered, and fermented with native yeast, this wine has great depth and a long linear texture, with subtle, muted citrus fruit wrapped in a chrysalis of finely spun woolen notes. Peach fuzz and melon rind absorb into zippy acidity. The subtle degrees of shading are spectacular and the finish feels like forever. Andrew Farquhar

Spencer, Elizabeth 2018 Mendocino Sauvignon Blanc

An excellent, well-balanced example of California Sauvignon Blanc blended from three organically farmed vineyards in Mendocino. The fruit here is both fully ripe and surprisingly refreshing with notes of tropical fruit, pink grapefruit, and just a touch of soft, fresh herbs. This is a pleasant wine for drinking on it's own, but would be a great pairing for lighter proteins with a fruit chutney, or a vegetable quiche. Michelle DeWyngaert

Wiemer, Hermann 2017 Finger Lakes Riesling Dry

This is the estate's flagship wine, and perhaps the type species for Finger Lakes Riesling as a whole. All estate fruit from vineyards that have had no herbicides since 2004; spontaneous fermentation in stainless steel takes place over the course of 7+ months. Slightly off-dry, with notes of spring blossoms, a little citrus character, almost a hint of lime. Beautifully structured and with a kind of roundness that is very satisfying. A classic New York Riesling, slightly fuller-bodied than a Mosel Riesling, but still with loads of acidity and just a touch of sweetness make this an easily quaffable wine that pairs with a wide range of foods such as bratwurst, oysters, or mango salsa.
