Siegrist Pinot Noir Blanc de Noir 2015

Pfalz, Germany

$21.99 / each

Description:

This fascinating German wine is a "white pressed" Pinot Noir, meaning the skins were removed immediately after crush, so that no red pigmentation could color the wine. Mineral, crisp and slightly effervescent upon opening, this is honeyed, nuanced and beautifully chiseled, showing puckery meyer lemon and white grapefruit flavors. This was made by the Siegrist family, who grows Riesling, Pinot Noir and Pinot Blanc in the Pfalz region of Germany.

William Fevre Little Quino Sauvignon Blanc 2015

Malleco Valley, Chile

$21.99 / each

Description:

This small production Chilean Sauvignon Blanc hails from Malleco Valley, which is Chile's southernmost wine growing region. The wine's name "Little Quino" is a nod to Sauvignon Blanc grown in the region of Entre-Deux-Mers in Bordeaux; Quino (which is the name of the hamlet where this wine was grown) means "between 2 rivers" in Chilean dialect. Fermented with wild yeasts, this is a bold, pungent expression of Sauvignon Blanc that shows great concentration and zippy notes of lime, passion fruit, gooseberry and cut grass.
