Totara, Sauvignon Blanc 2017 –


Marlborough, New Zealand


Winemaker Notes:Bright yellow in the glass, with


hints of green at the core. This wine is punchy and aromatic on the nose showing notes of lemon, passion fruit and honey dew melon. Refreshingly lively on the palate, you will discover a core of rich citrus, stone fruit and a mouth-watering minerality. Pairs with all seafood dishes, salads, goat cheese, and spicy Thai or Indian Food.


 


Want to experience the entire range of wine? — It’s time to ditch the staple wine you’ve been drinking and expand your palate. We want to take your taste buds on an adventure around the globe by offering you the opportunity to taste three different wines of the same noble grape. 










Tolosa, Sauvignon Blanc 2017 –


Edna Valley, California


Winemaker Notes: Straw color with a hint of mercury and some green on the rim. On the nose, hot pepper jelly, starfruit, yellow plum with an undertone of orange


blossom and fresh thyme. The palate shows a seamless wine with a bright acidity that carries on, showcasing a grassiness, limestone minerality, orange, thyme and ruby red grapefruit lingering on the finish alongside yellow nectarine. 


 


 


 




 


Domaine Fouassier, Sancerre 2017


Loire, France


Winemaker Notes:


A beautiful light hue with golden green reflections. Bright and bouncy, with a ripe grapefruit and lime zest bouquet up front, giving way to a slightly softer hint of lemon pound cake. Flavors of fennel, star fruit and lightly


mulled peach mingle through the soft and lively almond-tinged finish. It is a marvelous companion to fish, seafood, and light meat dishes as well as alone as an aperitif.
