Rain Sauvignon Blanc ($16.99): With aromas of citrus and tropical fruits, this fresh sauvignon blanc sees no oak, but has generous depth on the palate due to extended ageing on its lees. The bright finish also has a refreshing touch of herbs and grassiness.
Robert Sinskey Vin Gris Pinot noir Rose ($32.99): This Vin Gris made from 100% Pinot Noir, speaks volumes in soft whispers. Subtle aromas of white cherry, peach and nightflower evoke a summer evening watching the sunset. A lovely, balanced, silky and elegant palate full of quiet suggestions of stone fruit, sea air and wet river rocks makes for an eminently drinkable work of art.
Evesham Wood Pinot Noir ($22.99): Restrained yet friendly wine in a style that is truly Willamette. Bright fruit and a wisp of earthiness, here showcased and supported by assertive aromas of cherry cola and a bit of pencil box. Made from organic fruit, dry farmed for complexity and elegance. A stunning value.
12 Volts Tierra de Mallorca ($25.95): A bright and spicy wine with aromas of fresh red cherries and plums, purple flowers and granite, 12 Volts offers light and earthy tannins that uphold the wine’s persistent acidity and spice, which hints at cinnamon and anise. After some time in the glass, the oak comes whispering through with very slight aromas of toasted caramel.
