The Amalaya estates are located at 1800 meters altitude in the Calchaquí Valley in northwest Argentina, among the highest vineyards in the world. Pale with shiny gold notes. Citrus aromas, especially grapefruit and lemon peel, dominate the nose. In the mouth it is delicate and silky yet fresh and crisp, with good acidity and a distinctive mineral note. Origin: Marlborough, New ZealandVarietal: Chardonnay 100%Alc. 12.5%The Le Brun family at NO1 Family Estate are 12th generation producers from Champagne, who launched their New Zealand project in 1999. The No.1 has consistently won gold medals and trophies for winemaker Daniel Le Brun. A perfect balance between fruit and yeast, it was held on lees for two years, allowing full autolysis. It displays a tiny consistent bead, and firm mousse resulting in a typical, complex, champagne-like character.Origin: Shenandoah Valley, CaliforniaVarietal: Cabernet Sauvignon 100%Alc. 14.5%Fruit was sourced from the Baldinelli Vineyard, where the red, iron-laden soils of decomposed granite were planted with low-bearing, small berry clones in 1972. The wine is aged in barrels for 2 years, then in the bottle for 2 more years before release. Dark purple in the glass, it shows complex aromas of cedar, tobacco, and Asian spice box on the nose. On the balanced yet intense palate, the blackberry, cassis and olive flavours have a pleasant St. Julien-like texture, that is mineral-infused and sappy.Origin: Willamette Valley, Oregon Varietal: Pinot NoirAlc. 12.1%As Rose production grows in California and Oregon, the quality of the producers involved is also rising. So when an excep-tional Pinot Noir producer like Chehalem turns its hand to a Pinot-based Rose, things get exciting. A light salmon pink with a touch of orange, crystal clear, and glistening for summer. The palate is full of dried owers and yellow rose, line-dried linens, powdered kool-aid, and grapefruit peel. A slight phenolic texture rounds out the bright, crisp nish.12 generations of Champagne-making heritageQuality Rose from a Pinot Noir producerTorronté s – Argentinaʼs aromatic whiteDistinctive single vineyard California CabernetNEWNEWVC's Recommendations This Spring
