  1. Saracco Moscato d'Asti 2018
    VM94
    $12.98
    Availability:In Stock
    94 Points! Luminous pale straw-green with golden tinges. Captivating aromas of orange blossom, lemon verbena, vanilla, sage and ripe grapefruit nectar. Dense, juicy and suave, presenting a multilayered, complex set of flavors similar to the aromas. The finish is very long, resonating with a floral topnote and delightful vibrancy. Outstanding, concentrated, complex and very pure Moscato d'Asti. - Ian D'Agata, Vinous Media Learn More
  2. G.D. Vajra Moscato d'Asti 2018
    $17.98
    Availability:In Stock
    In fact, as good as many of the Vajra family’s wines are (such as, for example, many standout Barolos, a benchmark Freisa, an outstanding Dolcetto and Piedmont’s most famous if not best Riesling wine), their Moscato d’Asti is almost always, each year, one of the denomination’s best. - Ian D'Agata, Vinous Media Learn More
  3. Klein Constantia Vin de Constance 2014 500ml
    VM94
    $84.98
    Availability:In Stock
    94 Points!  The bouquet bursts from the glass with marmalade, honeysuckle, orange rind and tropical fruit, all beautifully defined, if perhaps just a little waxier than I recall. The lively, viscous palate presents layers of fresh apricot, honey and orange zest, leading to a precise, vibrant finish. I love the chutzpah of this Vin de Constance, and though it will age, I do not begrudge anyone drinking it now.

  4. Chambers Rosewood Vineyards Muscat Rutherglen 375ml
    WE92
    WA90
    $12.98
    Availability:In Stock
    92 Points!  This tawny colored Muscat is a different beast all together from the NV Muscadelle, and is a bargain for the quality. Less chocolatey and more in the citrus and herbal spectrum, it bursts with orange rind, cherry, vanilla and Christmas spices. These characters continue to the palate which is rich and of course sweet but not overly syrupy. The long, tangy, fruity finish is a treat. Sip with an orange or lemon tart. - Wine Enthusiast

  6. Ravier Vin de Savoie Chignin Bergeron (Roussanne) 2017
    $18.98
    Availability:In Stock
    First, for those that don’t know the genre, it’s probably not a bad idea to define our terms.   This term Chignin-Bergeron refers to the appellation here in the Savoie which is, in turn, named for its only permitted grape variety.  That grape variety is called Roussanne everywhere else.   But it is fair to say that the character of the varietal is quite a bit different  here in these pristine foothills in eastern France. 
     
    Sparkling streams, blue skies, this almost idyllic area yields wines of uncommon freshness with bright stone fruit and minerality taking the forefront and the typically heavy, soily, almost oxidative nature of Roussanne definitely a major part of the profile here.  These crisper, cooler versions have the honeyed tones and the earth elements present  but dialed back.  Bergeron gives a whole different impression when lifted and paired with a higher toned minerality that is a signature of this region.
     
    Philippe and Sylvain Ravier cultivate 7 hectares of Roussanne (called Bergeron here as we said).  The vines are between 10 and 30 years of age and are planted on very steep, due south-facing slopes of the Massif des Bauges at 1100-1500 feet altitude. The soil is rocky, decomposed white limestone which drains well while retaining heat to help ripen the grapes and the cool nights keep everything crisp.   The fruit is harvested by hand, carefully sorted and moved into the press by gravity. After a light pressing, the must is protected from oxidization by a blanket of CO2.
     
    The Philippe Ravier Vin de Savoie Chignin Bergeron 2017 has a rather surprising density to the delicate fruit that sits atop firm but giving acidity.  Honey and  nut elements play against the white stone fruit and flower core with subtle minerality throughout.  Fresh and light on its feet, it’s a fine example of the category.

  7. Site Wines Roussanne Ballard Canyon 2014
    WA94
    VM91
    $39.98
    Availability:In Stock
    94 Points! One of the best Roussannes I was able to taste from California, Weintraub’s 2014 Roussanne Stolpman Vineyards is a fresh, lively, yet also rich and full-bodied white that has rocking notes of buttered citrus, flower oil, brioche and honeysuckle. Aged eight months in neutral oak, it’s a head-turner readers should snatch up. It should drink nicely for at least 2-4 years. - Jeb Dunnuck, Wine Advocate

  8. Lustau Moscatel Superior Emilin Sherry
    WA96
    $23.98
    Availability:In Stock
    96 Points!  The non-vintage Moscatel Emilin Solera Reserva is the sweetest sherry in this group as well as the easiest to appreciate as it is made from 100% Moscatel...These are all remarkable efforts for their stunning value. While they are still under-the-radar for most American wine lovers, I encourage readers to give them a try as they are great introductory reference points for how profound sherry can be. I first wrote about the extraordinary sherries of Emilio Lustau many years ago, in the early days of The Wine Advocate. The portfolio of under $25 a bottle selections represents remarkable value for their complex, well-made personalities. - Robert Parker, Wine Advocate
