Day Wines "Queen D" Applegate Valley White Blend 2015

90 Our Score
(1/2017) This is wine maker Brianne Day's first ever white wine! We are as excited about this release as she is. It is a Southern Rhone inspired blend of 25% each Roussanne and Grenache Blanc, and 50% Marsanne. The grapes come from Mae's Vineyard in the Applegate Valley, the same site where she sources for her incredible "Hock & Deuce" bottling. The wine is rich and very textural, as one might expect from this type of blend. What differentiate it however, are its high and very tangy acidity, and a distinct savory streak that keeps it lithe and very drinkable. There is a bit of "funk" and a touch of reduction, but that blows off fairly quickly. A great first foray into making white wines!

Massican "Annia" Napa Valley White Blend 2016

Winemakers Notes
"This is only the second vintage of Annia that Ribolla Gialla takes the lead in the blend, 2012 being the other. There is a story that George Vare liked to tell us about Ribolla, according to the late, great Stanko Radikon, Ribolla is the consummate supporting actor when blended into a wine under the 50% threshold. At that minority level, the grape will truly morph into the background, providing the floors, the walls and the ceiling for the other grapes to adorn. In our 2016 Annia, the 60% of Ribolla in the wine is flattering; stone fruit and baked apple with green almond on the palate that plays off the Tocai's citrus blossom and pear skin. the 9% of Hyde Chardonnay in the blend tightens the wine a bit, but in reality it just steps aside and gives the two Friulian varieties a stage to play on; however, expect the Chardonnay to get involved as the wine ages."

Minimus "SM2" Applegate Valley White Blend 2015

90 Our Score
(10/2016) This is winemaker Chad Stock's second incarnation of his "SM2" bottling. For this go around, the Sauvignon Blanc is co-fermented with a bit of Viognier and then aged for 10 months in Acacia barrels. This unusual blend, coupled with the aging process, perfectly melts all these components into a beautifully seamless wine with great texture, explosive aromatics and plenty of nervy acidiy. A unique wine that is equally thought provoking as it is delicious!

Mullineux "Old Vine" Swartland White 2014

Primarily Chenin Blanc, with Clairette, Viognier and Semillon, this stuff is delicious!

93 Wine Advocate
(11/2015) "The 2014 Old Vine White is just a peach of a wine. It is fairly innocuous at first, saunters around for bit, minding its own business. Perhaps your attention is lowered. Then it evolves these wonderful aromas of almond, beeswax and just a hint of creme brulée. The palate is very well balanced with fine acidity, perhaps not quite as complex as the nose at full flight, but it delivers impressive, almost disarming persistence on the ginger-tinged finish. You will polish off a bottle quicker than you wish."

Day Wines Mamacita Pet Nat Malvasia 2016

90 Our Score
(4/2017) The 2016 rendition of "Mamacita" is a blend of 80% Malvasia and 20% Muscat. This bright and playful Pet Nat has become a Vin Chicago favorite over the past couple vintages. The addition of Muscat in this bottling creates even more intense aromatics than prior renderings. The palate is bright and energetic with notes of lemon and grapefruit zest, tangerine peel and ting (a Caribbean grapefruit soda). This is meant to be drunk out in the sunshine with a big plate of charcuterie.

Terroir al Limit "Historic" Priorat Blanc 2015

91 Wine Advocate
(10/2016) "The new white 2015 Terroir Históric is a blend of 75% Garnacha Blanca and 25 % Macabeo from organically-farmed vineyards across different villages of Priorat, mostly on llicorella slate soils. It fermented with indigenous yeasts after a direct pressing of the bunches and matured in cement tanks for six months. The wine is fermented with whole clusters, so it's a bit of an "orange" character, with structure and tannin, much more serious, showing the naked character of Garnacha Blanca, which to me dominates over the Macabeo (known as Viura in Rioja). The blend represents approximately the percentages found of the two white grapes in Priorat. The wine really represents Priorat. And I love these classical labels... There are 6,000 bottles produced."

Terlan "Terlaner" Alto Adige Pinot Bianco/Chardonnay/Sauvignon Blanc 2016

92 Wine Advocate
92+ Our Score
(8/2017) We were lucky to visit Terlan's steep-sloped, high-elevation vineyards earlier this year. Their entire lineup of wines is strong, and this flagship "Terlaner" really shocked us. A blend of 60% Pinot Bianco, 20% Chardonnay and 10% Sauvignon Blanc, it drinks somewhat like an upper-tier Grüner Veltliner, giving intense minerality and subtle white pepper tones followed by red apple, nectarine, and blood orange flavors. The texture and weight alone make it worth the price. Aged on its lees in tank for six months, this dry white will age nicely for 3-5 years or longer.

Day Wines "Vin de Days Blanc" Willamette Valley White Blend 2016

90 Our Score
(3/2017) The newly release "Vin de Days Blanc" is an Alsatian inspired field blend of 42% Pinot Blanc, 16% Pinot Gris, 16% Riesling, 14% Muller Thurgau and 11% Muscat. This enticing blend was sourced from a number of organically and biodynamically farmed vineyards throughout the Willamette. The texture is supple and round, gently coating the palate only to be energized by the zesty acidity, creating a wine of great balance and versatility. The aromatics are reminiscent of springtime, and indeed those are the types of food that this would pair wonderfully with, such a fresh salads and roasted chicken.

La Boutanche Pet Nat 2016

89 Our Score
(5/2017) The Bulldog is back! And with a brand new bottling! This is the first ever "Pet Nat" in the Boutanche line and it certainly is worth the wait. Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay from the Loire Valley are blended to create this delightfully playful and seriously thirst quenching dry sparkling wine. There is a touch of green cider to go along with the zesty lemon soda component, with feisty acidity dragging you back for another big slurp. When it comes to daily drinking sparkling wine, this one is hard to pass up.

Audrey et Christian Binner "Les Saveurs" Alsace White Blend 2014

90 Our Score
(3/2016) The Binner estate was established in 1770 and the family owns nine hectares in Alsace, only six of which are under vine. They are a certified organic producer practicing biodynamic farming. They produce "natural wines" using little to no additives (including sulfer) and no technological manipulations. This "Saveurs" bottling is a gorgeous field blend of Riesling, Sylvaner, Auxerrois, Gewurztraminer & Pinot Gris. All of the grapes come into play in this highly aromatic, floral and spicy wine. Delicious green apple, pear, lemon drops, peach and lychee are complimented by minerality, fresh cut flowers and subtle spice. The palate is lean, dry and bright and the finish is very long. This is a must-have for Thai and Sushi BYOB's and is a perfect choice for spicy foods.
