Similar in weight to Sauvignon Blanc, with more of the floral aromatics of a Viognier. A very refreshing wine - perfect for quaffing.
In Bordeaux and California, Semillon is often blended with Sauvignon Blanc. Because of its lean tartness Sauvignon Blanc is quite the opposite of Semillon - and, as they say, "Opposites attract." Outside Bordeaux, Semillon is becoming quite popular in Australia.
An elegant varietal of the French Rhone, often blended with its sister, Marsanne.
An ancient natural mutation of Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris can vary dramatically in taste depending on where it is grown. In the Tre Venezie in Italy, where it is known as Pinot Grigio, it is often a simple, light, crisp wine. However, Italian Pinot Grigio shows little similarity to the majestic, lavish, sometimes spicy Pinot Gris of Alsace. The aromas of Pinot Gris suggest peach skins or orange rind. Pinot Grigio is currently the best-selling imported wine in the United States, and it's fun to say too!
Picpoul de Pinet is one of the famed crus of the Coteaux du Languedoc, producing white wine exclusively from the Picpoul Blanc grapes. This varietal is commonly very acidic and refreshing.
Commonly grown in the Loire Valley of France, as well as in California. A high-volume-producing vine that gives birth to fragrant and usually high-acid wines ranging from dry to medium sweet. Known as Steen in South Africa.
A classic white wine made famous in Burgundy, France, it's now grown all over the world. It takes oak well and is often fermented and aged in oak barrels. Full bodied, with rich flavors of vanilla, butter, green apple and tropical fruit (banana, pineapple).
A delicious, light, lemony, often slightly fizzy wine. Not as full bodied as Chardonnay, as minerally as Riesling, or as herbal as Sauvignon Blanc. Albarino's flavors range from zingy citrus-peach to almond-honeysuckle.
