New Whites For Summer:

Jean Rijckaert Arbois “En Paradis” Vieilles Vignes 2014
*This old vine Chardonnay is aged in used oak for over a year and is made minimal intervention in the cellar to keep the wine as pure as possible. The flavor and aroma profile is an intriguing mixture of citrus, stone fruits, white flowers, yellow apple, bosc pear, green walnut, salty whipped butter, and hints of honey. The palate is full of energy, with tension and bright acidity that’s balanced by the fruit and round texture, finishing long and savory with subtle hints of baking spices and toasted hazelnut. A great value for Burgundy-style Chardonnay lovers*

Torre dei Beati Abruzzo Pecorino “Giochermo Con I Fiori” 2018
*Pecorino is a rising star in southern Italy, a white grape varietal that shows a tight structure of crisp acidity and abundant floral aromatics. Notes of fresh sage, acacia, savory anise, white pepper and green cardamom. The flavors are surprisingly more on the fruity side than the aroma would lead you to believe, with hints of tangerine, peach, lemon, white flowers and a slight salty and crunchy stone minerality. A medium bodied weight with a hint of an oily texture makes this well suited for swordfish or salmon*

Jacky Preys Cuvée de Fié Gris “Terroir Pierre à Fusil” Vieilles Vignes 2016
*Fié Gris is a mutation of Sauvignon Blanc thought to have been extinct. In the 1800s this grape varietal was treasured as one of the finest in the Loire. It has aromas reminiscent of the Summer season; Bright, sunny, juicy, crisp, and tropical with a lively tart fruitiness, and a distinct flinty mineral character that reminds you of the wines from Pouilly Fumé*
