Great wines mean a great experience. Not necessarily powerful. The wines should be elegant, very well balanced and complex enough to provide a memorable experience.
Quinta do Carqueijal Branco, Douro 2013 This fine Douro blend brings complexity through the unity of three grape varieties: Malvasia Fina, Cereceal and Fernao Pires. Mouthfilling and flavors that shift between fruitiness and mild bitterness, this well-structured wine can be enjoyed now with some fresh Mediterranean fish or aged till 2019.
Chenin Blanc , Shvo Vineyards, Upper Galilee 2012 An Israeli winery named after its vineyards is not a common sight in the holy land. This Delicate and smooth Chenin Blanc provides an elegant feel along with a medium bodied and smooth texture. Drink now.
Rioja Muga Blanco, Barrel Fermented, 2013 90% Viura 10% Malvasia this wine is a wonderful example of how barrel fermented whites can express both terroir and barrel in a finely balanced co-existence. Excellent job by the winemaker of a wine that displays amazing harmony under a smooth tasting medium-bodied texture. Chapeau!
La Vila Friulano, Lis Neris, Friuli Isonzo 2012 We recognize beautiful things when we see them, yet, when a winemaker expresses the beauty of his wines through flavors, it becomes an art. An appealing enchanting aroma of spring blossom and ripe green tropical and citrus fruits along with some green grass and hey. The mouth is a masterpiece of ripeness and balance in a rather cold climate area. Well done!
Ranjai Rizling Reserve Taranyi, Gilvesy 2014 Too young to drink now, this is a multi-layered medium to full bodied wine with an impressive elegantly balanced structure and a lingering after-taste. This wine has all thje qualities of a good Riesling wih a bitter-mineral twist that compliments the wine with further complexity. Too acid to be fully balanced now. Drink 2018-2025
Mas de Daumas Gassac Blanc, Haute Valle'e du Gassac 2010 Chardonnay25%, Viognier 25% Petit Manseng 25% Chenin Blanc 25% Another fine example of complexity that had been created by combining 4 excellent wines together in an artful manner. This is a full-bodied wine with a heavy toasted oak frame that adds in spices and charred wood bouquet. You may drink this wine now or up to 2019
Tokaji 6 Puttonyos Aszu , Szepsy 2007 Furmint 65% Harslevelu 20% , Sargamuskotaly 15% A true royalty combining perfect sweetness. Mild acidity and concentrated enough to last another 17 years.
Great White Tasting
