These whites are dry and light or medium bodied with a crisp and refreshing texture. They are great thirst quenchers and have a variety of flavours and aromas depending on which grape they are made from.
The aromas and flavour intensity is generally subdued and medium at best. At the richer end of the fresh un-oaked spectrum you might find some minerally, fruity or nutty aromas and flavours.
These are easy drinking wines because they are light bodied and generally lower in alcohol. Their high acidity means they are great food wines cleansing and refreshing your palate as you eat. You will sometimes find a slight spritziness to these wines when first poured which will dissipate as the wine sits.
These wines are best enjoyed while still young - usually within 2 years of production. So if you want a wine that is easy to drink, uncomplicated and won’t compete with the food your are serving, serve a Muscadet, Chablis or a cheaper Italian Pinot Grigio.
