From Soave Classico’s most privileged volcanic-limestone hillsides, this is a high-tone northern Italian white bursting with white flowers, honeysuckle and stone fruits. Crisp and clean, finishing juicy and surprisingly long. A perfect complement to all kinds of seafood dishes, summer vegetables, poultry and light cheeses. There is no old-vine, small lot Pinot Grigio that exists for anywhere near the price of this one.

“This great Barsac is just beginning to open up and not only has incredibly fine mango, papaya and star-fruit character but also something mineral. Great concentration and textural complexity right from the tip of your tongue to the end of the extremely long, very pure finish. You can enjoy this now, but I recommend cellaring it as long as you can, because this has at least 50 years of ageing potential!” – James Suckling
Corzano’s Toscana Bianco is a blend of six varieties, native and French, drawn from vines rooted in the gravelly, clay and limestone-rich soils of Chianti. After a cold fermentation in steel, blocking malolactic fermentation, the result is a mineral accented white and yellow fruit core that finishes beautifully fresh with lingering acidity. This ‘White Chianti’ is a rare and elegant treat. It’s also a treat to drink outside on the deck over some grilled vegetables, fish or poultry.

Bursting with energy and inviting citrusy aromas of fresh squeezed orange juice, mangoes and papaya. On the mouth, good tension and a touch of minerality to perfectly balance the juicy stone and tropical fruits that await. The finish is super refreshing and makes you want to keep coming back. James Suckling called the finish “lovely” and the wine “really well done”. He’s certainly not wrong.

The 2020 Celeste Sur Lies Verdejo Rueda is a must try. I had a glass last week and it blew me away. The beauty of these Spanish wines is that the quality is every bit $50/bottle, and the price tag is always a fraction of that. This one is fruity and fun with a lot of citrus, grapefruit, lemon lime notes to pair with some nice firm acid and wonderful concentration and depth. Cut off flinty soils, it’s got a great mineral component that harmonizes beautifully with the fruit. It’s a super food-friendly wine, especially with seafood, but it’s the kind of wine you might just want to sip on and enjoy all by itself.

The 2019 King Estate Pinot Gris is their best to date– the product of an exceptional vintage in Oregon with near perfect conditions for expressive, high-toned whites. The 92-point Editors’ Choice designation from Wine Enthusiast is a super rare feat for a Pinot Gris, but it’s a deserved one here for sure. Amazing notes of apricots, pear and juicy nectarine with a racy minerality on the finish that keeps you wanting more.
It’s hard to beat a great value white wine and this one is a at least a cut above the rest. One prominant industry insider called the 2020 edition, “the best white wine by any within $20/cs of this price.” It’s super crisp with a great mineral streak, and was carefully picked by hand when the temperature is coolest and is kept cool all the way into the press. From there, the effect of the mineral soil takes over, providing great finesse and freshness in every bottle. This white blend has great backbone and a lot of juicy fruit coming through behind aromas of flowers and stone fruits. At this price, it’s a no brainer.
