Chanson - Pronounced “shan-SOHN”, this wine reflects its name: a beautiful French song. Orange blossom, vanilla, and lime on the nose, and notes of tangerine. A creamy mouth-feel, with soft acidity on the finish, light citrusy notes, and delicate oak from aging in oak barrels.  $13.95 (750 ml)

2012 Sur Lie Chardonnay - Fermented in French oak barrels “on the lees” (yeast particles, etc that fall to the bottom of the barrel) for more complexity, this creamy Chardonnay has toasted coconut and buttery vanilla on the nose, with a full mouth feel and peach and tropical fruits on a long finish. $21.95 (750 ml)

2011 Proprietor’s Reserve Traminette - A dry, estate-grown Traminette, barrel-fermented and left on the lees for 5 months. This special wine was aged for 10 months in gently toasted oak barrels that are designed to enhance the aromatic delicacy of white wines and preserve their freshness. The flavors of lime, vanilla, hazelnut, and kiwi are well-balanced with the toastiness of the oak. Limited release.  $24.95 (750 ml) — OUT OF STOCK

2012 Legacy - A dry blend of Chardonnay and Vignoles, this crisp and fruity wine has peach, honey, and floral notes on the nose, flavors of honeydew and peach, and a long, crisp, clean finish. $4 from the sale of each bottle is donated to the Legacy Land Conservancy, a 40-year-old accredited land trust protecting local nature and farmland, including many acres in the nearby Waterloo Recreation Area.  $19.95 (750 ml) — OUT OF STOCK
