March Premium Mix 6-Pack 2018 - West Coast USA Tasting Pack II
Selected by Chris Kloss

Wine in the USA is diverse. While the supermarket jug-wines and two-buck-chuck dominate the popular headlines about the wines of the USA, it's easy to forget that co-existing alongside these are the quite brilliant wines made by thoughtful and dedicated winemakers. Moreover, these wines are not only benchmarks of the US industry, they are benchmarks for the world of wines and speak of their own unique terroirs.

This premium West Coast USA pack shines a light on some of the very best examples and includes wines from six legends of the US industry. As quick as a flash the First Premium Six Pack has sold through some limited stock, so without much drama we have russled up a new Premium pack!Amongst these is the sparkling wine star, Schramsberg Blanc des Blancs, the father of the single site Sonoma Coast pinot and chardonnay production, Littorai and the Peay brothers (who have carried the torch Littorai lit) and are producing some stunning pinot and chardonnay from Mendocino County. Moving further north to Oregon; a region many believe is the most exciting in the US for the aromatic varietals and pinot noir. Representing here are two of the very best in Elk Cove with their always superb Pinot Gris and Cristom with their lithe and complex pinot noir. Finally, into the breach we have added the Big Basin Grizzly 2010; bang in the middle of the drinking window this very highly rated blend this wine by Bradley Brown is renowned for it's elegance, fruit purity and sublime texture.
This is a pack any lover of great wines should have. They are limited so please be quick should you wish to secure one for the cellar.
