The Wines!!

Lovelock Sauvignon Blanc, New Zealand $20.99
New Zealand’s signature varietal tends to be bold and big. We are interested in texture and mouth-feel, rather than enhanced aromatics. To achieve this, a small portion of the wine goes through natural and malolactic fermentation, cutting the sharp edge off the palate. The grapes are from the Loveblock vineyard, consisting of two distinctly different soil types (see Vineyards) and allowing a blend of flavours. We want to make a more constrained wine, the unique aspect of the vineyard allows for minerality and a broad spectrum of flavours.
Colour: Water white with a hint of green and gold.
Aroma: Lifted aromatics with white peach, passionfruit and citrus notes.
Palate: White peach and tropical fruits abound. The lingering finish is underscored with mineral acidity.

Two Arrowheads White Blend $18.99
TWO ARROWHEADS is a luscious blend of Viognier and Roussanne from the calcareous soils of Paso Robles. Made with grapes grown in the warm California sun and cooled by mild breezes from the Pacific Ocean, TWO ARROWHEADS is fermented partially in oak and finished in stainless steel. This is a round and aromatic wine, offering a beautiful perfume of white peaches, guava, orange blossom, and nutmeg followed by flavors of passionfruit, melon.
