2012 Bianco "Di Caparsino" (Caparsa)

Caparsa, Bianco di Caparsino, Tuscany, Italy 2012

{biodynamic} Trebbiano, Malvasia

PEAR, GINGER, PAPAYA, DRIED CITRUS. EXOTIC

In 1982, Paolo Cianferoni started transforming his family's property in the heart of Chianti into an organic farm, leaving 60% of the land forested to maintain maximum sustainability. Though he concentrates on Sangiovese, a small parcel of his vineyard is devoted to the grapes that go into his distinctive bianco. Cianferoni allows the juice to ferment on the skins for a full two weeks, resulting in a firmer, more fine-toothed texture, and a wine that dances on the tongue.

Serving Suggestions: An ideal white to pair with heartier fare, like chestnut tortelli stuffed with pecorino and dressed in sage butter, or even classic Thai drunken noodles.

2017 Bianco "Scaia" (Sant'Antonio, Tenuta)

Tenuta Sant'Antonio, "Scaia" Bianco, Veneto, Italy 2017

50% Garganega, 30% Chardonnay , Trebbiano Soave 20%

PASSIONFRUIT, PINK GRAPEFRUIT, LEMONGRASS

Exotic in its perfume and mouth-filling fruit, this intense white is equal parts refreshing cocktail wine and provocative head turner. Between the loving care of the brothers Castagnedi and the unusually fine powdery granite soil (nicknamed "parmigiano" by the locals), an impressively expressive wash of tangy orange citrus and concentrated tropicality has been coaxed from the typically more restrained Garganega and Chardonnay grapes.

Serving Suggestion: Filleted flounder pan-sautéed in butter w/ lemon & generous dash of Old Bay. Grilled scallops & quinoa w/ cucumber, tomato, lemon, & mint.

2015 Blanc "Les Gryphees" (Vaux, Chateau de)

Chateau du Vaux, Blanc "Les Gryphees", Moselle, France 2015 Pinot Gris & Gewurztraminer

NECTARINE & PEAR, RESTRAINED HONEYSUCKLE, LEMON & A KISS OF LYCHEE

Germany is indeed where the Mosel River ends (in its collision with the Rhein), but it has its beginnings in France, and the Moselle appellation is among the more obscure along this river so famous for viticulture. This cépage from scientist and sommelier, Marie-Geneviève, and her husband, Norbert Molozay (an international winemaking gun-for-hire), features a cast of grapes which wouldn’t be out of place on the other side of the Vosges Mountains in Alsace and/or in Germany’s Rheinland. With vibrant acidity and an understated but exotic nose courtesy of ripe Pinot Gris and a kiss of Gewurz, this wine is memorable for its personality as well as its rare regional representation.

Serving Suggestion: Russian winter salad w/ potato, cucumbers, dill, green peas, & thin mayonnaise. Pork knuckle stew w/ sauerkraut.

2015 Blanc "Les Jacquaires" (Colombière, Chateau La)

Chateau La Colombière, Blanc "Les Jacquaires", Southwest, France 2015

{organic} 50% Mauzac, 50% Len de l'El

NECTARINE & FUJI APPLE, CHAMOMILE TEA, LILY & LILAC

This adventurous blend from our friends at Fronton's Chateau La Colombière features a pair of grapes which aren't typically associated with the Fronton region, itself, but its closest neighbor to the east, Gaillac. Mauzac, a varietal whose reputation for excellent quality extends back into the sixteenth century, lends it's firm, apple-like flavors while the rarer Len de l'El grape asserts its dynamically floral perfume and waxy, oily richness on the palate. While not utterly traditional, this exotic cuvée showcases two of the Sud-Ouest's indigenous stars – ones that we don't get to taste as often as we'd like.

Serving Suggestion: Leek & cucumber salad w/ walnut, violet-infused vinegar, & fennel pollen. Soft, whole grain corn tacos w/ grilled fish, pineapple salsa, & pinto beans.

2016 Blanc "Les Jacquaires" (Colombière, Chateau La)

Chateau La Colombière, Blanc "Les Jacquaires", Southwest, France 2016

{organic} 40% Chenin Blanc, 40% Sauvignon Blanc, 20% Bouysselet Blanc

RIPE BOSC PEAR, GREEN APPLE AND SPICE, FRONTON EST BON

Fronton’s Chateau la Colombiere has long championed not just the traditional grapes of their corner of Sud Ouest France, but also the obscure ones. So it comes as somewhat of a surprise that this vintage skips the Mauzac and Len de l’El of previous years for Chenin and Sauvignon Blanc. Colombiere still puts their distinctive touch on this blend by adding 20% Bouysslet Blanc, a grape almost extict before they rescued it from a vine nursery. The Bouysselet adds just hint of waxy richness, while its partners bring snappy freshness.

Serving Suggestion: Claypot crab w/ brown sugar, sesame, & glass noodles. Tropical slaw w/ pineapple, mango, cilantro, & lime juice.

ELEGANTLY TROPICAL, SPICY, EXOTIC BASIL

This is a very limited white from Casa Los Frailes. Only 500 cases are produced each year from meticulously selected grapes, and the result is every bit as exotic and enchanting as it is rare. With bright tangy fruit reminiscent of tangerine, white peach, and mango and beautiful flourishes of basil, shea butter, and vanilla, there's no mistaking that this is truly something special. A Wine Authorities exclusive!

Parellada, Macabeo, Chardonnay, Malvasia de Stiges

MINERALS, PEAR, LEMON. FAINT SPRITZ, LONG FINISH

From the highest elevation vineyard in all of the Penedes appellation comes this sophisticated white from just outside of Barcelona. This is Spain's answer to the fine, very dry wines from Chablis, Muscadet, and Rheingau. The blend is typically used to make Cava, but this still wine shows them to be subtle and complex and layered. This wine has been a favorite of ours for years, and the latest vintage does not let us down!

Serving Suggestions: Pure, unadorned oysters or steamed clams. Sashimi or simple haricot verts.

50% Tempranillo Blanco, 40% Sauvignon Blanc, 10% Viura

PEAR & LEMON, ALMOND, CHAMOMILE & SHERRYISH WAXINESS

Gleamingly golden in the glass, this barrel-aged white is a a powerful and elegant enigma. Combining Tempranillo Blanco (a light skinned mutation of the famous red variety occasionally referred to as Blanca del País) with very ripe Sauvignon Blanc, Viura, and Chardonnay has resulted in a distinctive blend that’s one of a kind yet has the uncanny ability to remind us simultaneously of rich, white Rioja, Fino Sherry, and toast-driven Cali Chard. Powerhouse!

Serving Suggestion: Boquerones w/ tomato pulp on toasted, rustic bread. Marcona almonds w/ sheep’s milk cheese & quince paste.

Grenache Blanc, Clairette, Bourboulenc, Roussanne

APRICOT & SANDALWOOD, VIBRANT & VOLUPTUOUS

Chateauneuf-du-Pape is the undisputed capital of the Southern Rhone. The region’s very name inspires cravings for burgundy-black wines brimming with exoticism. The region’s rare whites, however, are more exotic still and account for less than 10% of the area’s wine.

2014 Pacherenc du Vic-Bilh Sec (Labranche-Laffont, Domaine)

Domaine Labranche-Laffont, Pacherenc du Vic-Bilh Sec, Southwest, France 2014

{organic} 70% Gros Manseng, 30% Petit Manseng

BOSC PEAR & CLEMENTINE, WISPY GARDENIA, ALMOND

If you have heard of Pacherenc du Vic Bilh, you deserve a pat on the back. This rarely seen white wine from Madiran is one of France's best kept secrets. In fact, Christine Dupuy produces just a few hundred cases per year. The wine is aged on its lees and develops additional complexity in French oak for 2 months before bottling. This dry white tastes of almonds and hazelnuts with pear skin, citrus, tangy apricot and the ethereal perfume of gardenias.

Serving Suggestions: This is best with traditional SW French dishes like Poule au Pot or Poulet Basquaise. Flaky baked trout w/ dill and a fresh chick pea salad w/ heirloom tomatoes & sweet yellow onion.

2017 Rioja Alavesa Blanco (Ostatu, Bodegas)

Ostatu, Alavesa Blanco, Rioja, Spain, 2017

85% Viura, 15% Malvasia

LEMON & ANJOU PEAR, FLORAL, LUSH BUT SUBTLE & DRY

Ostatu's unoaked white Rioja comes to us courtesy of 60-70 year Viura vines with just a twist of Malvasia (15%) added to intensify the exotic perfume. An extra special treat, this cuvée was originally the estate's family wine in Spain and never intended for export, but local wine importer André Tamers kept after the producers until they allowed a bit of it to be brought to his markets. Great floral aromas precede tangy Anjou pear and lemon-like flavors. The finish is very clean and hyper-refreshing. Way cooool.

Serving Suggestion: Delicate fish baked in olive oil, thyme, oregano & garlic. Salty ham w/ chickpeas, arugula, & cherry tomatoes.

BRIGHT BLOSSOMY CITRUS & PEAR, REFRESHINGLY YOUTHFUL ENERGY

An adventurous blend of four varietals spearheaded by Tuscany's native Trebbiano, the "Corzanello" ushers in a combination of the famously fresh drinkability of central Italy's white mainstays and exotic flourishes of a less expected nature. Wispy floral tinges decorate gently tangy citrus and juicy tree fruit while a touch of clean almond and delicate leesy richness hang out in the background, adding additional depth. This is an unmistakably healthy expression of Corzano's landscape and the loving meticulousness of the family which tends it.

2015 Ventoux Blanc "Autan" (Aureto)

Aureto, Ventoux Blanc "Autan", Southern Rhone, France 2015

{biodynamic} 45% Roussanne, 30% Clairette, 15% Marsanne, 10% Grenache Blanc

HONEYDEW & APRICOT, RUBRUM LILY, SAKE-LIKE WAXINESS

From Ventoux, where the Southern Rhone and Provence collide, this white blend brings together a veritable who’s who of white Rhone varieties. While Viognier remains absent, an intensely tropical assortment of fruit essences leads the way to exotic floral nuances that wouldn’t be out of place in Condrieu. The overall impression, however, is a bit riper and more Mediterranean - both elegant and generously fun. Aureto prides itself on the estate's typical (yet exceptional) terroir, the impressive knack possessed by young vigneron and enologist Aurélie Julien, and the cutting-edge techniques employed in the cellar.

Serving Suggestion: Baked monkfish & couscous w saffron, raisins, zucchini, & turmeric.

2015 Weiss "Konkret" (Meinklang)

Meinklang, White Field Blend "Konkret", Burgenland, Austria 2015

{biodynamic} Gewürztraminer-driven field blend

PERSIMMON & PINEAPPLE, CIDERY SHARPNESS, CLOUDY YET CLEAN

Following in the footsteps of the concrete Nomblot Egg-aged Sankt-Laurent which has become something of an icon for Meinklang, this white is a field blend featuring Gewurztraminer and other varieties. It’s also an orange wine and has developed the classically cloudy and amber-pigmented semi-opacity that is a hallmark of the style. A gently funky rusticity is balanced by vibrant, refreshing acidity and fruit that hits a high note which is persimmony, cider-ish, and tropical. Let the adventure begin!

Serving Suggestion: Laotian papaya salad w/ crab & squid. Tangy goat’s milk cheeses w/ pickled & salty thangs.

2016 White Blend "The Little Prince" (Karavitakis)

Karavitakis, White Blend "The Little Prince", Crete, Greece 2016

65% Vilana, 35% Vidiano

CIDER-LIKE TART APPLE & PEAR, LEES & LEMON ZEST

Cretian native varieties Vilana and Vidiano are close relatives and appear here as a duo. The former, in the lead, is among the most important grapes on the island, while the latter, in a supporting role, is slowly being coaxed back into significance following an extended decline. This youthful yet old-school white is simultaneously refreshing and rustic, lightly-cloudy and brimming with a cider-ish sharpness and lemonade-like citric brightness. If you ever find yourself unable to decide between a glass of wine or a shandy cocktail, this might be your horse.

Serving suggestion: Neapolitan wood-fired pizza w/ anchovies, capers, & black olives. Fluffy, folded ommelette w/ chives, mushrooms, & cheese.
