Customer Choices for our Top 10 Whites
A clean, dry white made from the Jacquère grape variety. With tangy, chalky minerals and floral fruit flavors, it is a natural match for shellfish.
Pretty pale yellow color with lime-green undertones. The nose is very aromatic and seductive with aromas of ripe fruit such as peaches, pears and citrus notes. The palate is ample, developing beautiful fruity notes with a nice balance.
The most popular white wine from Portugal, is a deliciously refreshing, light wine. “Verde”, meaning “Green” refers to the hints of lime color. It is an ideal warm weather wine, excellent for lunch and picnics, or an evening aperitif. It makes a brilliant pairing with any fish, shellfish and poultry.
While not untrue, calling Cheverny a value alternative to Sancerre would completely overlook the virtues unique to this appellation. It is a much zippier expression of Sauvignon Blanc compared to its famous neighbor, more citrusy than grassy, while the addition of some Chardonnay in the tank adds a lovely peachy note. A brisk, zesty white like this brilliantly complements a lunchtime salad of whatever fresh produce you can get your hands on, such as cucumber and avocado, abundantly seasoned with a medley of shredded herbs like basil, mint, and cilantro. Two or three glasses of Salvard make for a salivating cure to the warm-weather blues before you drift off into your afternoon nap. – Anthony Lynch
Medium straw to pale gold. Aromas of white peach, lemon, honeydew, yellow watermelon, honeysuckle and creek stones. Dry and crisp with melon and ripe pear accented by bright lemon and lime zest. Hint of herbaceousness but driven by the fruit. Well balanced modern style.
The color is wheat beer yellow. The nose is a pretty blend of melon, apple, lemon, and honey, along with tangerine, peach, and a whiff of spring flowers. The Burgans Albariño 2019 sleek, silky wine, with interesting, balanced flavors. It starts with Green apple, lime, apricot, orange, and peach. The mid-palate adds pear, grapefruit, nectarine, and light spice. The acidity is plentiful but balance and stays in its lane.
The 2018 Annabella Chardonnay offers gorgeous and bountiful aromas of Asian pear, orange blossom, candied lemon peel, and brown sugar. In the mouth, the wine showcases a well balanced acidity in counterpoint to a plump, round mouthfeel. Generous flavors of juicy pear, white nectarine, and Meyer lemon blend together with a note of toasted almonds lasting throughout the finish. Enjoy this crowd pleasing Chardonnay with a whitefish cooked en papillote with fresh lemon slices and butter.
Straw yellow in color, this wine has a nose of tropical fruit with a honey tone. On the palate, fruity at the beginning, fresh, sapid and persistent on the ending. Pairs well with light hors d’oeuvres, fish, seafood, or serve as an aperitif.
A vibrant Sauvignon Blanc with lovely melded aromatic notes of tropical fruits. The smooth, textured palate is concentrated with passionfruit and citrus flavors. Well integrated natural acidity leaves a pure and lengthy finish.
The 2020 Morning Fog Chardonnay bursts with aromatics of melon and green apple complemented by hints of tasty oak and vanilla from barrel aging. This wine is balanced by a lingering minerality and natural acidity to create a beautiful wine.
