Chenin Blanc 2011

Sourced from the Mooiplaas Wine estate in Stellenbosch, South Africa, this wine is mostly Chenin Blanc with a small amount of Semillon blended in. The result is a fresh wine ripe with dried peach and apricot. The Semillon adds a bit more weight to the palate while the Chenin Blanc highlights the minerality. A great pairing for seafood, shellfish, and grilled chicken.

Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

Xavier Flouret sources the juice for this wine from the DeMartino winery in the Maipo Valley of Chile. The wonderful weather in the Maipo Valley in 2011 allowed for the Cabernet Sauvignon to achieve perfect ripeness. This, coupled with aging primarily in concrete vats, made for a wine with fresh blackcurrant fruit along with spices and hints of mint. The wine strikes a wonderful balance remaining both delicate and intense.
