Muted aromas of apricot, honey, some dried flowers. Dusty, grainy quality. Darjeeling tea, a little acetone. Solidly built overall, but doesn’t quite match the complexity and concentration of the best skin contact whites.

Clear butternut gold in the glass. Dried apricots and pottery on the nose. Medium full body and medium plus acidity with medium tannins. Palate of terra cotta, dry ripe stone fruit, and white pepper. A sturdy white in the orange style from one of the original wine regions. Rich eastern European, Ural/Caucasian, or southern US foods would be a great pairing.

Bright amber in the glass. Nose and palate of dried orange and pottery with a hint of sherry. Medium plus acidity and medium tannins support the full-bodied mouthfeel and of course, elevate this to the epitome of a Whit food wine. Fried chicken? Tuna casserole? Roasted ham (northern or southern)? Vegetable lasagna? Here’s your wine!

Savory, elegant lifted. Stone fruit and focus. Yum!

At Eastern Standard, Boston. Clean, precise; lots of quince, membrillo. Not overly tannic. Well done.

Love this "amber" wine. Apricots, ripe pear skins, some sherry notes and a touch of heat on the finish. Definitely exotic, eminently quaffable.

An amber wine! Bitter tannins from the skins make this wine starkly dry. It's also quite salty, with peach and apricot aromas and acidity giving it refreshing juiciness.
