My two favorite whites tonight

Calcari is Xarello. Do you know WTF Xarello is? No? That's totally cool. It's a grape. It's a minerally, fairly dry, crazy amazing grape. If you see this on a wine list, forget about pairing, just buy it! Ours is from Perés Balta.

Then, holy shit! Felicité from Aarde Valley in South Africa tastes like an islay whiskey. Un-fucking-believable. It's smokey like a lapsang souchong but it's white, and you know what? It's Chardonnay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
And get this: It's unoaked!!!!!!!¡!!!!¡! So amazing.
