Rank Wine Rating Price
1 Tiefenbrunner Cabernet Sauvignon Alto Adige Südtirol Castel Turmhof (2010)
Comments: A very light and zingy style. Bright flavors, low on the floral aromatics. Refreshing. Would match well with summer fare such as pesto, radish salad and shellfish.
Previously available for $28.95

2 Pinot Bianco Terlan (2008)
Comments: Rounded and rich style, with warm golden fruit flavors and a honeyed finish. A whiff of honeysuckle aromatics seal the deal. Goes surprisingly well with black olives!

3 Boekenhoutskloof the Wolftrap Boekenhoutskloof South Africa Syrah Mourvedre (2010)
Comments: Besides, Viognier, this also has Chenin and Grenache Blancs. An unusual blend, and the risk pays off. There's sweet fruit and vanilla on the nose, with some toast and sesame, which I think comes from the Chenin. The flavors round each other out nicely. Would be great with food!
Average price: $10.94 from 53 stores

4 Mcpherson Cellars Roussanne Lubbock County (2010)
Comments: Tropical fruit flavors (passion fruit, star fruit), slightly floral, good balanced acidity. A bit waxy, but in a good way, the good-smelling candles not the gross, too-perfumey ones. Would be great with some spicy food!
