These are intensely flavoured, un-oaked whites from aromatic grapes like Riesling, Gruner Veltliner, Gewurztraminer, Viognier,Albarino, and most new world Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Gris.
These wines will typically smell like flowers or taste like a bowl of fresh fruit. Look for aromas and flavours of orange peel, ripe peaches, papaya, mango, lychee, rose petal, dried apricots, passionfruit, or dried apricots. Some will have a herbal note or white pepper spiciness or minerally accents. These wines display a lot of natural aromas and flavours from the grapes rather than from oak or wine-making practices. Flavour intensity ranges from medium to full-in-your-face intense.
