DECEMBER TELLER 12

Whites

 

Nicolas (Sauvignon Blanc), Cotes de Gascogne, France   

Balanced and smooth, with crisp acidity showing ripe peach, pear and apple flavors. Floral and tropical delights abound. Grown in clay and limestone which give the finish a touch of mineral.

Cline Cashmere (Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Muscat Canelli, Viognier), California  

Bright flavors of peach and pear, floral aromas, and toasty vanilla notes from oak. Enjoy this medium-bodied luxurious wine with spicy dishes, seafood pasta, or by itself.

Leone de Castris Five Roses (Rosato), Salento, Italy      

A historic Rosé first bottled in Italy in 1943. Light cherry red with aromas of cherry and strawberry. Fresh fruit on the palate complemented by smooth texture and well-balanced, persistent finish. Great with risotto.

Hybrid (unoaked Chardonnay), Lodi, California    

This “naked” style of Chardonnay is enhanced with a brush of Viognier to showcase the tropical notes of fresh pineapple and kiwi. A short, smooth palate is complemented with a clean but slightly acidic finish. Refreshing all year round.

Nicodemi (Trebbiano), Abruzzo, Italy    

Second generation Elena and Alessandro Nicodemi now manages the family estate vineyards. This wine is fresh and crisp with a lightly herbaceous finish. Wonderful with grilled octopus or as an aperitif.

Gorgorito (Verdejo, Viura), Rueda, Spain        

Friendly melon aromas are a touch dusty on the nose. A plump, round mouthfeel is appropriate for melon, lime and green banana flavors which finish soft and a bit dilute.

 

 

 

 

Reds

 

Hahn (Pinot Noir), Monterey, California     

Dark purple in the glass, this Pinot shows aromas of dried plums, black currants and cola. On the palate, black cherry and a silky mouthfeel build on fresh acidity. Well-integrated oak finish of vanilla and spice.

Il Pumo (Negroamaro), San Marzano, Italy      

In the heart of ancient villages, from high balconies and white terraces, it whispers luck to visitors. This wine is made from the clay that once gave light to the vineyards. It is a flower starting to bloom, a young peach, a grape on a vine. Ripe luscious and smooth.

Bodegas Taron (Tempranillo) Rioja Alta, Spain     

Silky, elegant and ripe fruit are the hallmarks of this wine. Dark berries, minerality and juicy plums are made better by the opulent, velvet laden textures that coat your palate.

Marietta Old Vine Red (Lot 66 Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, Carignane), Geyserville, California       

The #1 (red) seller for 15 years at Teller, this wine is consistently good vintage after vintage. Fragrant, dense and jammy with a kick! Deep purple in color, concentrated blackberry fruit and balanced by peppery spice.

Beyond (Cabernet Sauvignon), Western Cape, South Africa        

Inspired by the translation of “Buitenverwachting” (meaning “beyond expectation”), this wine is packed with luscious red ripe fruit flavors with an edge of eucalyptus for a silky long finish.

Zolo (Malbec), Mendoza, Argentina    

Attractive and intense violet color, with black fruits, berries and raspberry flavors. The finish is complex and elegant, yet very approachable. Another fan favorite for 15 years.
