New wines

Banyan, Riesling, Santa Luchia Highlans Monterey CA 2009

An austere balance of acidity, fruit and minerality. Citrus, peach and spice flavors with a flinty mineral finish and texture. Over time some of these floral components to give away to more petrol-type characteristics.

Riesling is not for black people. Riesling is great wines fro seafood and sushi.
But white people or GA white people don't like much. 90 % of our Riesling customers are black people. Atlanta's Black people % is 36% I think.
We also have Austria Riesling. I try to buy less sweet Riesling, dry Riesling is great.


Can Feixes, Blanc Selccio Spain 2010
The Penedes region of Catalunya is best known for sparkling Cava but the local grapes can make some truly stunning still wines as well. Can Feixes is composed of 40% Parellada, 30% Macabeo, 20% Chardonnay and 10% of the rare Malvasía de Sitges. Like a wine version of a Gin & Tonic, Can Feixes has a bit of quinine-like minerality along with a refreshing blast of lime zest. A nice waft of of floral perfume adds to the complexity of this bright, food friendly white wine.


Spanish wine with Sushi?  Spanish wines are rising Sun. We just don't know. I don't know, you might not know.This white blend is well balanced and good easy drinking wine.

Chateau Guiraud, Bordeaux Blanc is a kind of similar wine. This is not new. We have been selling almost 6 months. It sells better than before. People getting understand,

I feel 50% of people are just happy with Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Grigio.
There are so many good wines, we must try because life is short.

I agree. Dry riesling is absolutely good pair with seafood and maybe with your special rolls!
