Heavenly Hamburger Wine
River Junction, California, United States
A buttery, medium-bodied and creamy Chardonnay with spiced apple, ripe pear, tropical fruit and vanilla flavours that linger with a mild toasty and spicy finish. Fresh acidity for food. Pair with grilled seafood dishes.
Scrumptious Seafood Wine
Weszeli Felix 2019 Grüner Veltliner is produced from the Niederösterreich region in Austria. On the nose the wine is showing lovely aromas of soft lemon-lime zest and white pepper, light-bodied and spritzy on the palate with subtle mineral notes. Very refreshing. Chill and enjoy on its own or with spring greens salads.
Sweetness: Extra Dry
Enchanting Feta Cheese Wine

Château Suduiraut Lions De Suduiraut 2016 is a beautifully sweet Sauternes, earthy with fresh mushroom, sous bois and apricot compote aromas on the nose, balanced with good acidity and layers of dried stone fruit, orange preserves and underbrush flavours finishing long on the palate.
