A soft, rich, inviting white, full of floral and peach nuances that end with a hint of earthiness. Drink now.

A full-bodied nose of melon and lemon leads on this solid white from the Finger Lakes. A combination of fresh fruit, peaches and lemon follows on the palate, with waves of spice. A good wine to enjoy solo.

Dr. Frank makes the country's preeminent rkatsiteli, a dry and minerally white in '08 with scents of green herbs and scallions. Its flavors are lean and angular, with notes of crisp pear and lees. Ideal with a slightly fatty fish, like whole striped bass.

Beautiful on the nose with sweet notes of honey tangerine and marmalade, Dr. Frankrsquo;s 2009 Rkatsiteli is leaner than in previous vintages, but bright with fresh navel orange peels and a crisp, clean acidity. Finishes quite long with a delightful orange pith astringency.

Made from an old Georgian (think Caucasus, not peach trees) grape variety, the waxy paraffin-scented aromas give way to pear and quince, tinged with red apple skin and lemony acids. Therersquo;s a certain crystalline quality to the fruit thatrsquo;s very appealing.

When there's a sage-roasted chicken crisping in the oven, pull a bottle of this floral white from the fridge. It's sweet peach flavors and scents of grass and straw will meld right in with dinner.
