California: Wild Horse Valley : Heron Lake Vineyard
MEDIUM BODIED, WHITE FRUIT, CITRUS, SPICE, HERBS, SOME OAK
This is not your typical California Chardonnay full of oak and vanilla. It is tense and nervy and tart with accents of bright green apple, crunchy peach, a touch of honey and chamomile flowers. Malolactic fermentation gives the wine its creamy texture.

Hungary : Nagy-Somloi
MED-FULL BODIED, STONE FRUIT, CITRUS, HONEYED, FLORAL, NO OAK
Somlo is the small appellation in all of Hungary, based on a dormant volcano with incredibly steep hills. This wine is pure delight. Round and ripe with ever present note of summer peaches and peach blossom with honeycomb that is lifted by complex intersection of basil and wintergreen.
