Edi Simcic
2012 Riserva Chardonnay
Gold color. Aromas and flavors of grilled lemon, crème brulee crust, and herbs with a dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a long finish spiced peach and melon, vanilla cream, and praline finish. A intriguing slightly smoky and herbal chardonnay.

Giocato
2015 Sauvignon Blanc
Pale silvery emerald straw color. Exotic, tropical aromas and flavors of sour sop, pineapple husk, spiced lime and pear, and bison grass with a silky, bright, dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body and an effortless, interesting, breezy pickled melon and minerals finish with fine, fruit tannins and no oak. A very distinctive and interesting sauvignon blanc.
