Description:

This lush, densely-concentrated wine is made of 100% Alvarinho, the Portuguese cousin of the more familiar Albariño from Galicia in Spain. Grown on steep terraces in the Minho region and made by star winemaker Luis Duarte, this is a very impressive expression of this variety, delivering lots of sweet pomelo, honeydew melon and chamomile flower notes.

Crew Work White Pinot Noir 2016

Elkton, Oregon

$23.75 / each

Description:

This beguiling, super energetic wine from tiny producer Crew Work may fool you into thinking it's a rosé. But looks can oftentimes be deceiving, as this is actually a white Pinot Noir - essentially whole-cluster pressed Pinot vinified as a white wine without any extended skin contact. The resulting wine is pale copper in hue and features a bone-dry, racy palate full of ripe strawberry and lemon notes.
