Atlantique Sauvignon Blanc Atlantique Sauvignon Blanc $14.00

From the new Atlantique IGP and downstream for Sauvignon Blanc's most famous region comes this little crowd pleaser. Bright and vibrant but without the abrasive intensity found in the NZ style. Just a great drinker with light stonefruit, light hay and a touch of salinity.



Les Coteaux Tufiers Les Coteaux Tufiers $15.00

An absolute gorgeous demi-sec Chenin Blanc from the appellation of Vouvray. Classic minerality working harmoniously with flavors of melon, honeysuckle and white peach. Just the right amount of sweet, balanced perfectly by its acidity.



May George Cremant de Loire May George Cremant de Loire $19.00

Truly a gorgeous Cremant. Almost all Chenin, there's faint whispers of frangipani, peach, and honeysuckle nestled in the limestone and baking bread aromas. Bracing acidity, clean finish, one of the best we've found. As good as any Vouvray Brut at half the price!



Clos Mazurique Clos Mazurique $19.00

Along the Loire river you'll find Saumur. Cab Franc dominates the red plantings and we can see a prime example with this bottle. Perfumed floral aromas, dark cherry, forest floor and mineral. Gorgeous mouthfeel and smooth tannic structure. Bright acidity making this wine an easy drinker.



Champalou Vouvray Brut Champalou Vouvray Brut $25.00

Lovely gold with copious, tiny bubbles. The Chenin shows subtle aromas of orange zest, lemon zest, dried pear and a little floral honeysuckle. A sip brings a punch of lively apple, pear and light orange with faint honey and fennel. The finish leaves you pondering the wines many dimensions. Better with a wider range of food than Champagne at a better price for certain!



Champalou Fondreaux Vouvray Champalou Fondreaux Vouvray $28.00

The best producer and his best cuvee, if you are going to do Vouvray you might as well do it right. Soft and slightly sweet melon, citrus and peach. Elegant and supple with haunting flavors and not overly sweet. Find out what Chenin Blanc can taste like.



Hippolyte Reverdy Hippolyte Reverdy $34.00

Sancerre is well known for its production of Sauvignon Blanc. This small production of Sancerre Rouge focuses on Pinot Noir following the Burgundy model. Meaning you can get a high quality Burgundy style Pinot without the Burgundy price. Gorgeous cherries and ripe strawberries, subtle earthy tones, great acid and lengthy finish.

    Sori Gramella refers to the one of the only single vineyard Moscatos, and Marco is the only producer to bottle this striking limestone amphitheater commercially. Once the 30 year old vines give up their bounty, and the grapes are harvested and pressed, they are kept in stainless steel at a low temperature to prevent fermentation until an order is received in order to provide the freshest wine possible.

    So pretty. Brings a clear nose of Gimblett Gravels terroir beneath lush soft blue and black fruit with lovely violet and lavender notes. Palate is clean, balanced and very approachable. Just a hint of the Northern Rhone's meatiness but mostly bright fruit and enough acidity to hold it in check. Maybe the best NZ Syrah out there??
