Hey there - As a young wine drinker (22 yrs. old) I am still new to the wine world. I want to acquire as much wine knowledge as possible, and all of my mentors have pushed me down the same path, taste, taste, taste! Therefore I am at the point where I find it imperative that I begin to develop my pallet. What I am looking for are lower priced wines ($10-25) that are true to their varietal. I want to get to know many varieties in their truest sense before I begin delving more into the terroir and winemaking contributions, though I understand these will be present as well. If you have any suggestions, I would love to hear them. Also, if you have a personal favorite, or even a suggestion from one of your own beginner wines, I would love to have that recommendation as well.
true to varietal recommendations

Surely you did not mean to say Delheim Edelspatz is from Germany - to clarify it is from Stellenbosch in the Western Cape - and heavenly for those with a bit of a sweet tooth. Their Spatzendrech (sp) was one of the most enjoyable Late Harvests I ever tasted.
