 This Old-World style of producing Chardonnay displays no oak, and is charged with minerality and a crisp, vibrant zest.  A refined backbone of yellow apple, various melon, and fresh earthy notes lend themselves to a slightly tart, lingering finish, which sails on and on...                   

......CHARDONNAY......   

$16

This New-World style of producing Chardonnay is softly oaked and laid back. A smooth talker with great eye contact, we urge caution to stay focused through the almond, vanilla, and lemon curd flavors, which aim to distract from the hidden acidity and possibility of quality food pairings.

With a golden diamond hue, this wine is perfect for a romantic, candle-lit dinner by the fire. The sophisticated profile exhibits tropical fruit flavors, which are both sour and sweet. Persistent and stubborn, Gewürztraminer is a labor of love, as it tests your resolve throughout the relationship.

This light wine pleases the palate with honey, apricot, and pear flavors, with an unexpected lemon sing on the finish. This cheery vintage perfectly compliments a lightly spiced asian dish.

POW! ZAP! A blast of spunk and stamina. Note grapefruit, kiwi, and pineapple flavors as they zip across the palate. It maintains the sharp, bright profile of a wine in its prime, as it is well-balanced and fresh, yet comfortable in its identity. Is this the one to finally bring home to the family?

Look no further for summer bliss; this sweet white blend is bursting with fruity twang, boastful flavors of white peach, and cantaloupe. Best enjoyed on a hot summer day by the pool or on the beach, though Hanover White is also known to be a great component in a delectable, homemade white sangria.

This sassy vintage both comforts you and pokes you in the ribs. There may be flavors of cantaloupe, honeydew, or white flower, and even a perception of effervescence. Nurturing, yet mischievous, this wine is like running through a wild meadow in the early Spring sunshine, while grinning from ear to ear.

Tilting the glass away from the body during examination, one can observe the dense color progression throughout this groovy blend. For casual drinking, the wine excels with or without food, and the tomato, thyme, and cherry flavors aid relaxation as you shout at children in the cul-de-sac, from the porch.

Supple and voluptuous, this one. Besides the upfront plum and cherry characteristics of this blend, there is a notable association with grilling - skewers and kabobs. Sautéed mushrooms, onions, and squash each add complexity to the masterpiece, while the dash of sweetness makes for an incredible party sensation.

Think of the kitchen for this wine’s profile: like, removing the seeds before stuffing a red, bell pepper, or biting through the skin of a plum, to check its ripeness. There may also be soft blackberry flavors, which lend to the explanation of subtle tartness in the finish. Minimal oak allows more degrees of fruit to shine.
