White wines can be highly prized for their prettiness. That
prettiness can come from highly fragrant aromas where each time you put
your nose in the glass you are hit with a pretty pungency. Or it can
come from simply a delicate texture and elegance in the form of a wine
you’d enjoy sipping on a Summer porch. In this pack you will explore 3
such wines from the European ‘Old World’. See for yourself what pretty
wines have to offer.
1 bottle each of the following:
Domaine Laporte Sancerre Blanc (Sauvignon Blanc) - Loire Valley,
It has the distinctive Sauvignon Blanc bouquet of clean,
herb-tinged fruit and a touch of flinty, smoky complexity that
sets Sancerre apart from any other Sauvignon Blanc wine. The
flavors are fresh, crisp and focused with succulent melon, fig
and citrus fruit notes backed by the crisp edge of acidity
that lends a true note of distinction.
Leth 'Steinagrund' Gruner Veltliner - Wagram, Austria
Gruner Veltliner is the shining star white grape of Austria.
It is clean and crisp with aromas of grapefruit, tart apple,
green pears, and lemon peel. It also exhibits the purely
classic scents of crushed white peppercorn, and sugar snap
peas that are unique to gruner veltliner on top of clean
minerals with refreshing acidity. Beautifully balanced and
Barth "Allure" Riesling - Rheingau, Germany
This semi-sweet wine is wonderfully representative of
traditional German winemaking. The freash peachy, and key
lime aromas are atop pretty white flowers, beeswax,
honeycomb, and river stones. It will remind you of sitting
along the Rhine River watching boats go by.
