one taste and you will want a case for the Spring!
Very fruity and light Gruner Veltliner with fresh aromas of citrus and green apples. Crisp on the palate with lively acidity structure. Cold appetizers, soup, shellfish, poultry, vegetables, salad. Also pairs with with spicy Asian and Thai food.

2022 Ponce Mancheula Blanco...$25.99
Grape: Abilla Grape
The old Reto white has been renamed with the name of the family, as it was the first year they used the new family vineyards that represent close to 40% of the blend of the 2022 Ponce Blanco. It fermented in 600-liter barrels and 1,000-liter foudres, where it matured with lees for seven months. The Albilla grape from Manchuela, which is different from the Albillo from Gredos, Ribera del Duero or the Canary Islands, keeps low alcohol (12% this year) and high acidity and freshness (pH 3.1 and 6.2 grams of acidity), which give it a sharp, fresh and austere profile. The name can be a bit misleading, as it's not the top for whites as it is for the red. There's always a citrus touch with hints of grapefruit. It has a tasty palate with a combination of acid and bitter flavors that give it an austere profile. It's a serious white beyond the price point.

2022 Painted Wolf The Den Chenin Blanc....$14.99
Grape: Chenin Blanc
Enjoy with grilled fish tacos, ceviche, fresh salads, goat cheese, fried calamari, Thai chicken curries or chicken satay with peanut sauce, a bucket of popcorn and a movie! Extremely versatile.
A perfumed example with green apple, honeysuckle and rock candy. Restrained on the mid palate, textured with a nice lingering aftertaste. No excess it’s got a smoothly sophisticated finish. Feels effortless. Delicious.

2022 Richemar Viognier...$13.99
Grape: Viogner
Rare bargain French Viognier
It is hard to find a great inexpensive Viognier, so we are very excited to find this one, gorgeous nose of peaches and apricots. I has flavors of tangerine, almonds and a hint of ginger with depth and weight. Perfect for an aperitif wine and and also with seafood or spicy foods. . Early morning picking and cold temperature fermentation to preserve freshness. The lees are stirred post-fermentation to add volume to the wine and balance the fruit.

2021 Pieropan Soave Classico....$19.99
Grapes: 85% Garganega and 15% Trebbiano di Soave
In a screw-cap bottle, the organic Pieropan 2021 Soave Classico (a blend of unoaked 85% Garganega and 15% Trebbiano di Soave) is fresh and bright throughout. This pretty wine shows lots of zest and energy, and these qualities live up to the best of Soave Classico grown in this fascinating territory of mostly volcanic origin. In a vintage like 2021, you get amazing focus and precision in these extremely food-friendly wines. Production is an ample 500,000 bottles.

2022 Moulin de Gassac Picpoul de Pinet...$11.99

This mineral laced 100% Picpoul hails close to the oyster beds one finds by the Mediterranean Sea in southern France, as it’s also known as the “Muscadet of southern France.” This wine is aged purely in steel to retain freshness; just 1000 cases are made annually.
