SOAVE CLASSICO 2016 by PIEROPAN in Veneto, Italy $18.99 BTL
Savory and fresh, this opens on alluring aromas of white flower, orchard fruit, citrus and a whiff of crushed rock while the palate offers creamy white peach, apple and lemon drop. A saline mineral note lingers on the finish.

CHARDONNAY ‘COLD CREEK Vineyard’ 2015 by Chateau Ste. Michelle in Washington $17.99 BTL
Despite coming from the warmest vintage on record for the state, The 2015 Cold Creek Chardonnay offers plenty of ripe Chardonnay fruit, yet stays fresh, lively and crisp on the palate. Peach, buttered citrus and some floral notes all give way to a medium-bodied, balanced, clean Chardonnay that offers considerable value at the $18 price point.

SAUVIGNON BLANC/SEMILLON BLEND 2017 by CAPE MENTELLE in New Zealand $17.99 BTL
COMMENTARY: Nothing cleanses the palate better than a Sauvignon Blanc, and when the winery combines this grape variety with Semillon, the results can be quite outstanding. The 2017 Cape Mentelle Sauvignon Blanc Semillon is at the top of its game. TASTING NOTES: This wine is balanced, refined, and generous. Its aromas and flavors of ripe citrus, savory spice, and ripe wintermelon should pair it divinely with a crisp Dungeness crab salad with a lemon citrus dressing.
