Gaia Monograph Moschofilero ($13.99): This lively, dry white wine made from one of Greece’s native and most beloved white grapes has an intensely floral and fruity nose, with hints of rose petal and spice. A refreshing wine, with a crisp acidity and flavorful finish.
Mastroberardino Greco di Tufo Nova Serra ($20.99): Along with Falanghina and Fiano, Greco is one of the three important white grapes of Campania. Generally deeper colored with more mineral and savory tones than the other two. Medium-full bodied, with serious structure, this wine can hold up to heavier dishes, and does especially well with light roasts, turkey, or creamy cheeses.
Jaeger Defaix Rully 1er Cru Preaux ($39.99): Light ruby color. The expressive nose is more complex and a bit more elegant as well with its pretty array of very pinot aromas that are trimmed in discreet wood. There is a finer mouth feel to the delicious, round and attractively textured medium weight flavors.
Clos La Coutale Cahors ($14.99): 80% Malbec and 20% Merlot. Deep ruby in colour. Aromas of blackcurrant, blackberry and prune. Fresh finish with mint and vanilla. A classic expression of Cahors in the South West of France, birthplace of the well-known Malbec grape variety. Ideal with pork chops.
