Select Wines presents four exciting new wine discoveries for our April 2008 Select Wines of the Month--another exciting assortment of seasonally appropriate small-production finds.

The red wines are a knock-out New Zealand Pinot Noir that rivals many Central Otago offerings at twice the price and a super juicy, delightfully exuberant Tempranillo from Spain's hot Carinena appellation. The whites are an extremely vibrant, truly top-notch Sauvignon Blanc that could easily pass for a high-end New Zealand or Loire Valley effort and a layered, complex Piedmont white from one of the region's super stars, Giacomo Ascheri.

As always, we hope you enjoy the wines. Not a single wine here was produced in quantities greater than 2000 cases!

* 2006 Lobster Key Pinot Noir, East Coast, New Zealand

* 2006 Sipranillo, Carinena, Spain

* 2007 Nyakas Sauvignon Blanc, Buda, Hungary

* 2006 Ascheri Arneis, Piedmont, Italy

Complete with Select Wines Profiles(c) for each wine.
