This dry, tangy version offers a lot of the grape's signature rose petal and cream flavors, but is also infused with hints of curry spices and plenty of red grape fruit and candies pouring peel. Bright acidity crackles through to the lingering, smoky finish. Drink now through 2019.

Lovely varietal character from highly acclaimed biodynamic winery Zind-Humbrecht. Perfumed with honeysuckle, baking spice and stone fruits, with an exotic palate of lychee, almond, pear, peach and apple pie. Long, beautiful finish.

Pale medium-gold color. Expressive aromas of smoked meat, rose oil and cinnamon. Plump and spicy, with good ripe acidity and a chewy saline nuance. This is tactile and nicely concentrated, not to mention persistent, for a basic bottling.

This dry white shows precise balance, and despite being medium- to full-bodied, seems elegant overall. Tangy acidity enlivens the apple sauce, lychee and clementine flavors, and there's lots of smoke and white pepper on the finish. Delicious. Drink now through 2025.

Pale orange-gold. Aromas of pineapple, rose petal and orange oil, plus a suggestion of more exotic fruits. Creamy, spicy and rich, but with the brisk acidity and supporting minerality to support its considerable sweetness. The exotic fruit suggestions carry through on the palate, with a pepperminty note perking up the finish.

This deeply colored dry white is loaded with layers of star fruit, grapefruit, rose, cream and spice, all underscored by a lightly smoky mineral element. The firm structure and defined acidity are filled in by the fleshy texture, with a lingering finish of white pepper and sweet fruit. Drink now through 2025.

A dry white, with an overall elegance and flavors of lychee, yellow peach and white pepper. A nice thread of smoky minerality builds to the finish. Drink now through 2013.
