Gilvesy Bohem Riesling Cuvee 2015

Balaton, Hungary

$21.99 / each

Description:

This flinty, organically grown Hungarian wine is a blend of Riesling, Welschriesling, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Gris. Grown on volcanic soils and done in a bone-dry style, this wine is all about minerality, and you'll see that expressed in its energetic, almost spritzy texture and in its clean aromas of salty sea-spray. Zippy notes of grapefruit and lime linger on the wine's very elegant finish.

Taut and sleek, this foot-trodden wine boasts a gorgeous purple hue and shows a luscious palate full of crushed blackberries and black raspberries. This is zippy, vibrant, mouth-watering stuff that was bottled unfined and unfiltered by Herdade Do Rocim, one of Alentejo's top producers of natural wine.

Sheldon Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Sheldon Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Sonoma Valley, California

$21.99 / each

Description:

Sourced from D'Allaird Vineyard in Sonoma, this tiny-production, 100% Cabernet bottling is vibrant, elegant and incredibly fresh. This is a decidedly feminine expression of Cabernet, favoring low alcohol, pretty rose petal aromas and zesty bing cherry fruit over power, density and over-extraction. One of the most surprising, most delicious, most delicate Cabernets you'll meet. Bottled unfined and unfiltered, this was aged in neutral French oak and only 225 cases were produced in total.
