  1. New Sketches Chardonnay by Tawse Winery 2017

    $239.40

    Tawse Winery

    Canada (Canada), Niagara (Canada), Ontario (Canada)

    12 x 750 ml

    Breads, Pasta, Salad, Vegetables, White Meat


    "Baking spice, mineral notes and Granny Smith apple aromas waft easily from this well-paced, well-priced chardonnay. A delightful mouthful of tropical fruit, tangy lemon curd and notions of caramel blanket the palate, balanced and beautiful, medium bodied, nicely textured showcasing persistent purity of fruit and no small amount of charm along with a lengthy mouth-watering aftertaste. Pour on its own or alongside roast chicken or roast pork."

  2. $263.40

    Tawse Winery

    Canada (Canada), Niagara (Canada), Ontario (Canada)

    12 x 750 ml

    Rich Fish, Risotto, Salad, Vegetables, White Meat


    "Wow! This is an intense, nervy riesling with all kinds of apple, citrus and floral (jasmin) character. It is medium weight, just off dry but so well balanced in terms of acid and sugar, with really impressive fruit intensity and drive. It is bracing and almost relentless in terms of flavour depth. There is a hint of CO2 adding to the brightness. Some grapefruity bitterness on the finish. Excellent to outstanding length."

  3. $275.40

    Tessari

    Italy (Italy), Veneto (Italy)

    12 x 750 ml

    Rich Fish, Risotto, Salad, Vegetables, White Meat


    This has a gorgeous, exotic and refined nose of linden/jasmine, lemon blossom, tangerine and peach. It is medium-full bodied, very tidy, lively yet rich with lovely concentration and focus. Nicely firm and mineral with bitter lemon on the finish. The length is excellent.

    "The ’18 is so bloody amenable, still volcanic salty and never losing focus. So delicious, as always. Drink 2020-2024."

    Forrest

    Marlborough (New Zealand), New Zealand (New Zealand)

    12 x 750 ml

    Hard Cheese, Salad, Scallop, Vegetables, White Meat


    "From vineyards close to the winery, stony soils, inspired by John’s two years in the Loire. Made in 1,000-litre oak foudres from Germany and very old barriques for part of this blend. There is some herbaceous character, some elderflower, but it is tempered and restrained, cool leafy thyme herbs. Super sweet fruit, a lovely nectarine and peach touching on mango, with sheer acidity. Excellent."

    Pearce Predhomme

    Oregon (USA), USA (USA)

    12 x 750 ml

    Salad, Vegetables, White Meat


    "This has quite lovely subtle and clean nose of fresh peach, honeysuckle and vague breadcrust - classic gris aromas that are particularly refined. It is medium weight, dry yet nicely fruity as well with fine pear on the palate. It has a mineral edge, the finish is clean, the length is very good to excellent."

    "Gorgeously aromatic, with spring flowers, juicy lemons, guava and similarly tropical fruits, then peaches and cream, musky grape, finally tied together with fresh-apple acidity."

    Salad, Scallop


    "The 2016 Curtimenta is all Alvarinho aged for nine months in used French oak. It comes in at 13% alcohol. Sourced from 20+-year-old vines, this is made with fermentation on skins, resulting in more color and more tannins. The oak seems almost irrelevant here, as the structure of the wine and its concentration overwhelm and counter the wood. That's not to say there is no oak impact, but it is impeccably balanced. Then, as the winery suggests, it finishes with a bit of tannic pop. There is remarkable grip on the finish, good acidity and that tannic pop. The next day (when it seemed 50% better than on the first day tasted), this was tight, focused and intense, perhaps the best Curtimenta yet. It's very fresh, the fruit lifted and focused, despite the wood, and it is the acidity that seals the deal for this wine. It simply slices and dices the wood into splinters after it's open for a day. In 2015, its high-end sibling Parcela Única was the bigger star, if only by a bit. This year, it's pretty even, but the styles are radically different. This has greater purity and intensity, while its sibling has a lusher, richer feel. Curtimenta handles the wood far better (it usually does when young, and it receives less aggressive wood treatment), at least now. Whenever I thought the wood was becoming assertive, the acidity and fruit came right back up. The Parcela Única may be even deeper and more like a white Burgundy than a Vinho Verde. Choices, choices. Buy both! In time, the balance of both may change for the better as they pull in the wood even more. That's not as important with the Curtimenta, given less wood impact, but even the Curtimenta could benefit from a year in the cellar. Needless to say, they should age rather well (although Parcela Única edged into the lead on the third day after opening, making me doubt again which was better). It's a very different vision of Vinho Verde, showing what the region can do when its top producers perform at the top of their game."

    Bien Nacido Estate

    California (USA)

    6 x 750ml

    Salad, Scallop, Vegetables, White Meat


    "Delicate and yet laser-focused on the nose, this tremendous bottling from a historic property offers wet chalk and exotic lime aromas. There is a great grip to the tense palate, where a chalky texture delivers flavors of toast, white peach and a light brush of butter. It's clean and crisp yet consequential."
