New Rhone Wines for the Hot, Hot Heat…

These are White Wines for Red Wine Drinkers…

from Mac’s Beer and Wine

What do I mean by that? Well, I often have customers ask for a mixed case of big reds with 1 or 2 whites, and that tells me they either don’t like whites, or don’t like the typical style of Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc’s that are readily available. These are the kind of bottles I know I can sneak in to their case and they won’t disappoint! In fact, they will LOVE, because they’re rich and textured with a weighty mouthfeel and complex layers of fruit, spice and floral characters. Not your buttery Chardonnay or the overly citric Sauvignon Blancs of New Zealand (Not that there’s anything wrong with them!! We like them too, for other reasons) –But, these whites will entice you and create an exciting experience when paired with great company and great food!!

Stolpman, L’Avion – Mac’s Cash Price $38.99
(pictured above)
2008 L’Avion, Santa Ynez Valley :100% roussanne. An expansive, highly perfumed bouquet displays poached pear, tangerine, smoky lees and honeysuckle. Deeply pitched orchard and pit fruit flavors are enlivened by juicy acidity and pick up notes of botanical herbs and chamomile with air. A pretty wild ride, with lively citrus and mineral qualities adding definition to a long, sappy finish. The food-matching possibilities here are endless.” – 92 points, Stephen Tanzer
“The delicious 2008 L-Avion (100% Roussanne) offers attractive orange, nectarine, and honeysuckle aromas and flavors, medium to full body, good underlying acidity and freshness, and ripe fruit. Enjoy it over the next year.” – 90 points, Robert Parker

Villa San Juliette, Grenache Blanc – Mac’s Cash Price $18.99
2009 Villa San Juliette, Grenache Blanc, Edna Valley :
“Every once in a while I come across a few rows of grapes that I just have to do something special with. Grapes that are unique and amazing enough to be included in their own special bottling. A one-of-a-kind small lot or “reserve” release that may or may not ever come again… Crisp and lovely with succulent citrus, pear and fig flavors! Juicy and refreshing with a delicate finish.” – Adam LaZarre, Winemaker

Hearst Ranch, Three Sisters Cuvee – Mac’s Cash Price $19.99
2009 Three Sisters Cuvee, Paso Robles :
“Three Sisters is a Rhone style blend consisting of Marsanne, Rousanne, and Grenache Blanc. The nose of our 2009 Three Sisters White is composed of peach, mineral, orange blossom, and violet. The front end of the flavor profile is driven by tangerine which transitions to flavors of nectarine and apricot supported by refreshing acidity.” – Adam LaZarre, Winemaker

Consilience, Grenache Blanc – Mac’s Cash Price $22.99
2007 Grenache Blanc, Santa Barbara :
“With enticing aromas of fresh green apples, bathed in rich, gooey caramel, our Grenache Blanc is like a candied apple tailor-made for grown ups. Incredibly smooth and luscious on the palate, this wine is fabulous all by itself, but pairs well with macadamia crusted mahi mahi, grilled thresher shark with mango salsa, lobster risotto, or Pad Thai with shrimp.” – Consilience Wines

Elyse, L’Ingenue – Mac’s Cash Price $24.99

2008 L’Ingenue, Sierra Foothills : “(Marsanne, Roussane, Viognier, Grenache Blanc) Yellow-gold. Honeyed peach and white plum on the nose, complicated by exotic flowers, marzipan and a resiny nuance.  Fat, sweet and nicely concentrated; in a soft style but with lively citrus-y acidity giving grip and lift to the middle palate.  This satisfying, easy-to-drink blend holds its shape on the lingering finish.” – 89pts, Stephen Tanzer

Consilience, Viognier – Mac’s Cash Price $22.99
2007 Viognier, Santa Barbara :
“This lush, voluptuous Viognier far richer than our prior vintages and has a creamy mouth feel. With hints of honeysuckle, spice and lemon curd on the nose, flavors of Braeburn apple and Bosc pear on the palate and crème brûlée on the finish, this wine is satisfying and full bodied. Don’t drink this wine cold, let it warm up a few degrees to enhance its sophisticated flavors.” – Consilience Wines
