Featured Wines

2017 Hofgut Falkenstein, Niedermenniger im Kleinschock, Riesling Kabinett, Mosel, Germany
Regularly $22.99, Tasting Price $19.54
Delicate, but with a steely elegance, this hard to pronounce Riesling from Falkenstein is just lovely. Look for notes of jasmine, pollen, and apricot aromas with just the slightest bit of juicy nectarine mingle with an assortment of citrus: tangerine zest, meyer lemon and yuzu come to mind.

2016 Fattoria La Rivolta, Falanghina del Sannio Campania, Italy
Regularly $19.99, Tasting Price $16.99
For La Rivolta’s Falanghina del Sannio, subtle fruit underpins textural minerality. Flowers, mint and spices give way to a lengthy, focused finish, which is typical of Falanghina that has had minimal intervention in the winery.

2016 Lucky Star, Pinot Noir, California
Regularly $11.99, Tasting Price $9.99
Lush berry aromas with hints of baking spice lead to a jammy red fruit palate. Medium in body, Lucky Star’s Pinot Noir has a round mouthfeel, smooth tannins and a lovely, lingering finish. Enjoy with grilled salmon or tuna, or roast chicken.

2017 Kalleske, “Clarry’s” GSM Blend, Barossa Valley, Australia
Regularly $24.99, Tasting Price $20.99
There is a captivating display of vivid plum, rose florals, candy, spice and blackberry. Equally engaging is the medium bodied, full flavoured palate. Intense pure fruit is the drive of this wine whilst fine supple tannins and mineral nuances add structure and complexity.

2014 Jelu, Malbec, San Juan, Argentina
Regularly $14.99, Tasting Price $12.74
Quite possibly the most food friendly Malbec available. This practicing organic Malbec shows flavors of blackberry and raspberry up front with a sweet smokiness on the finish. Perfect for chasing away the winter’s chill!
