Domaine De La Meuliere Chablis 2015

Chablis, Burgundy, France

$27.99 / each

Description:

The Laroche family who runs Domaine De La Meuliere has history in Chablis dating back to 1780. Their fabulous Chablis bottling was produced in a very minimalistic way, using traditional methods honed by their ancestors including hand harvesting of the fruit, ploughing the soil and letting the terroir speak for itself. Despite the fact that this wine is made of 100% Chardonnay, it's Chardonnay designed for a Sauvignon Blanc palate given its steely acidity and zesty lemon and grapefruit flavors.

Umathum Sauvignon Blanc 2015

Neusiedlersee, Austria

$27.99 / each

Description:

Austria may not be the most obvious place to look for world-class Sauvignon Blanc, however this stellar, incredibly fragrant example from the region of Neusiedlersee in Burgenland may convince you otherwise. This is a very exotic expression of Sauv Blanc that reveals enticing notes of lemongrass, ginger, lime and grapefruit. Lean and mineral, this excellent bottling from organic and biodynamic producer Umathum finishes long and clean.
