2016 Mönchhof Ürziger Würzgarten Riesling Kabinett Mosel

This is my “step away from my Riesling” face. Prickly lemon/lime on the nose with even a hint of salinity and minerality. Off-dry on the palate with apple, peach, lemon, and slate notes. This is an über classic Riesling – off-dry with slate notes and racy acidity. Rawr.

2016 Cucao CH Reserva Chardonnay

2016 Cucao CH Reserva Chardonnay

Taking it easy with some Chilean Chardonnay. Lemon, lime, pineapple, and maybe a hint of lemon crème on the nose. Limes dominate the palate with lemon, pineapple, and guava notes. Simple. Straightforward.

2016 Domaine Sainte Anne Entre-Deux-Mers

2016 Domaine Sainte Anne Entre-Deux-Mers

Lounging with this white Bordeaux from the first organic vineyard in the Bordeaux region! Meyer lemon, exotic fruit like dragon fruit and underripe mango, and peaches on the nose. Similar on the palate with a hint of minerality and even seashell on the palate.
