Critics such as Robert M. Parker, Jr. have influenced New World producers and consumers towards a fruitier style,
with more use of new oak.
We currently offer a select, comprehensive portfolio of wines that define California as one of the world's most
prestigious wine regions. Our premium California wines are from well known appellations such as Napa Valley,
Sonoma, Mendocino, Monterey, Paso Robles, Santa Barbara County, Santa Cruz Mountains and others. The varied microclimate
and soils of different California appellations produce a wide range of distinctive flavors.
California's warm weather allows many wineries to use very ripe fruit which brings up a more fruit forward rather
than "earthy or mineral" style of wine. It also creates the opportunity for higher alcohol levels with many
Californian wines having over 13.5%.
The wines we provide through New World Wine Trading represent a broad selection of the traditional varietals such as
Chardonnay, Fume (Sauvignon) Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Zinfandel, Pinot Noir, Petite Sirah, Rose's as well as
"sweeter" and fortified wines.
The style of California Cabernet Sauvignon that first put California on the world's wine map at the Judgment of Paris
is still a trademark style today. California's cabernet is a lush, full-bodied wine with a high fruit concentration. Its
robust flavor makes it suitable with most hearty meals or sharing with friends at social gatherings.
Our fine wines will suite any taste - from the simple to the most sophisticated. The wineries we represent have
produced a great number of award winning wines that would please even the most discriminating wine consumer.
