2015 Ranga Ranga Sauvignon Blanc
Marborough, New Zealand
"Maori for 'gentle breeze,' Ranga Ranga is Simon and Vanessa Barker's early-picked Sauvignon Blanc, caught when just ripe. The crisp acidity carries a solid core of fruit aromas and flavors - lemon grass, lime zest, the herbaceous tang of cut lawn plus a hint of Mediterranean dried herbs and a touch of Awatere minerality. And it still packs the fresh, zingy punch on the finish that makes it stand out from the crowd.

2011 Cune Vina Real Rioja Crianza
“The 2011 Viña Real Crianza, mostly Tempranillo with 10% Garnacha, Mazuelo and Graciano fermented in stainless steel, matured in barrel for a little more than one year before bottling. It has a very ripe nose with hints of raisins, plenty of plums and black cherries, a little decadent and baroque. The palate is ripe and tasty with balsamic, Mediterranean flavors that are round, lush and approachable.”
