The nose is very fresh with some floral and citrus notes and mineral. In the palate, the wine is dense and has a creamy texture with a good acidity and mineral backbone.
Luis Seabra Xisto Ilimitado Branco 2021 – Sale $24.99
Minerality drives this white, wet flinty stones mix with fresh nectarine, white peach, and bartlett pear on the nose. A bright lifted palate follows, packed full of fresh picked orchard fruits and more stony minerals. Xisto Ilimitado Branco is graceful and powerful all at once, without ever coming across as heavy. Long and seamless across the tongue, and laced with mouthwatering wet stone.

Quinta da Muradella Gorvia Blanco 2014- Sale $49.99 – 93 pts Wine Advocate
In a very individual style, this is made from the Doña Blanca grape variety, which has a neutral aromatic expression that becomes quite complex and elegant after oxidative ageing. The nose is quite developed and not very fruity, giving way to a full-bodied silky and velvety mouthfeel. It is deep but restrained, a wine that requires a lot of attention, but gives a unique impression.
Xisto Ilimitado Tinto 2020 - Sale $24.99
High toned and wonderfully floral, with a delicate mix of red and blue fruit aromas, tinged with wet stone and violets. It's so wonderfully pure and precise on the palate - a delight to sip on. Light to medium bodied, impeccably balanced with red cherry and pomegranate fruit, stony minerals and bright acidity keep you coming back sip after sip.
Soto Manrique “Les Violetas” - Sale $25.99 – 93 pts Wine Advocate
This wine is wild, austere and mineral, with sharp tannins reminiscent of the white granite. This is a wine I love—more backward, less aromatic, with more tension and chalky tannins. I love the texture here, so reminiscent of the granite soils.

Showing the full breadth of Corbieres, the Chateau Montfin highlights the Mediterranean climate with bright fruit and delicious herbal notes. A fresh, versatile wine perfect for after work drinks or fun springtime dinners!
Cristom Pinot Noir Mount Jefferson Cuvee 2021 – Sale $42.99
Overall, the 2021 vintage may reveal itself to be one of the greats of the last ten years. The wine is red and blackberry driven, perfumed with fine vanilla cake, damp forest floor, and violets. On the palate, the wine is juicy and full, with perfectly ripened berry fruits, well-integrated tannins, and mulling spices.
