Wolffer Estate, “Classic White Table Wine” White Blend, 2016, New York

$11.99

Classic White is a blend of Chardonnay, Riesling, and Gewurztraminer; tart and refreshing but well-balanced for food, this is a firm white with apple, smoke, and herbal flavors over crisp refreshing acidity.

Borsao, Macabeo-Chardonnay Blend, 2016, Spain

$7.99

This Spanish macabeo-chardonnay is straw yellow color with strong citric and tropical fruit aromas. In the mouth it is creamy and fresh, in perfect harmony with the acidity.

Huber, “Hugo” Gruner Veltliner, 2017, Austria

$9.99

Very light yellow. Fresh green apple and fruity aromas. Displaying flavors of lemon, lime and peaches. Has a solid fruit core, rich in finesse with beautiful length and mineral tones.

Cantina Terlano, “Terlan” Pinot Bianco, 2016, Italy

$14.99

On the nose this classic Pinot Bianco scores with crisp notes of pear mingling with aromas of raspberry and lime, plus a touch of chamomile and lemon grass to round off the composition.

Thirsty Owl Wine, “Finger Lakes” Pinot Gris, 2016, New York

$13.99

Despite its moderate alcohol, this dry, full-bodied Pinot Gris feels quite plush and plump. Ripe white peach and apricot flavors are honeyed in tone, offset by fresh acidity and a slightly steely finish.

Kreuznacher Kronenberg, “Spatlese” Riesling, 2016, Germany

$10.99

Focused nose shows sweet melon, lemon and some minerals and spice, but slightly sweet. The palate is rich and viscous, yet still fresh and transparent.
