Meinklang Burgenlandred 2015
90 Points Wine Enthusiast
60% Zweigelt, 30% Blaufränkisch, 10% St. Laurent
Ripe blackberry notes dominate this wine's nose and palate. Their ripe, tart juiciness makes for an appetizing, fruit-driven palate. Smooth but pervaded by freshness, it's a vibrant, juicy blend full of refreshing, ripe fruit. Uncomplicated but delicious.
Satellite Sauvignon Blanc 2016
90 points Wine Enthusiast
For an entry level wine, this is impressive, offering hints of grapefruit pith, bergamot and smoke on the nose and following those up with some meaty-mushroomy notes on the palate. It's not typical, but boasts a silky texture and a unique combination of citrus and umami that lingers nicely on the finish.
Domaine Saint Roche Rosé 2016
This Year's Loire Valley's Best Buy
WINE & SPIRITS MAGAZINE
"100% free-run juice of gamay, farmed at his family estate in Meusnes, on the hills above the Cher River. The wine's tart plum and grapefruit flavors carry through a silken texture, with green- peppercorn spice lasting in the end. A great buy for summery refreshment, this would be terrific chilled with fish and chips, or any batter-fried seafood.
