Bueyes Torrontes 2017

La Rioja, Argentina

$23.75 / each

Description:

This sassy, lychee-scented wine is made of 100% Torrontes which has established its foothold as Argentina's signature white grape. This was grown in Valle de Famatina which is located in the region of La Rioja, just north of Mendoza and south of Salta. Despite its sweet, exotic nose, this wine is bone-dry on the palate delivering juicy lemon and lime notes and bracing acidity.

Mosel, Germany

$23.75 / each

Description:

This mouth-watering, bone-dry German Riesling was named after the slate or "Schiefer" soils that the Mosel region is so famous for. This wine is a perfect lesson in minerality; the smell and taste of that flinty slate are so present in this wine that you're almost instantly transported to the vineyard site where this was grown. Racy acidity and vivid pineapple fruit make this bottling very memorable.
