Borsao Berola 2015

Campo De Borja D.O., Spain

Courtney scored this wine: 90/100

Full bodied and on the higher range of alcohol. Notes of ripe cherry, blueberry pie, black pepper, smoke, rosemary. Great balanced acidity. This wine tastes MUCH more expensive than its price!


Sacred Hill Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2019

Marlborough, New Zealand

Courtney scored this wine: 90/100

Initially tons of flint on the nose - matchstick. Opens up to traditional New Zealand sauv blanc notes of gooseberry, key lime, pink grapefruit, and background notes of mint. Zesty and vibrant, this one really stimulates both the sense of taste and smell - even tickling my nose as I sip, feeling a little like wasabi. Very fun!

Benziger Family Winery Sauvignon Blanc 2018

North Coast, California, United States
314 days ago

Courtney scored this wine: 91/100

Mouth-watering, super fresh and aromatic sauvignon blanc from California - grapefruit zest, white grapefruit, lemon, lime, lemongrass, passionfruit, and honesuckle. Great acidity, and a flavor that lingers quite a while (grapefruit, lemongrass). Would contrast well with some glazed carrots, or even hold up to a light coconut curry.


Strewn Winery Terroir Riesling 2018

Niagara-On-The-Lake, Ontario V.Q.A., Canada

Courtney scored this wine: 89/100

Dry riesling - Green apple, honeydew melon, white peach and wet stone minerality. Touch of tarragon. Spicy white pepper finish. Pretty and very light! Pair with asparagus, goats cheese.

Courtney scored this wine: 90/100

Ripe sauvignon blanc from California with a touch of muscat thrown in for aromatics. Very tropical nose of ripe pineapple, pear, and meyer lemon with a touch of fennel zesty acidity and minerality. Light bodied and elegant. Great pairing for oysters, shaved fennel salad, and feta cheeses.
