Has a fresh floral aroma, almost like clean laundry. @Jessica Medved says it “Smells like a candle.” Tight acidity that opens up gradually to reveal some new tennis balls - I love it!

Tropical fruit, ocean spray nose. Bright fruit, mineral mid palate, and an acidic over ripe fruit finish. Gets bonus points for QPR and being different. Also, as an avid head, for the bright acidity.

A genuine surprise. $15 a bottle, but punching way above its weight. Low alcohol, high acid. So far so prototypically my speed. But it has a burst of flavor and sweetness, too - blue cheese and peaches roasted in butter and, as the name would suggest, a little salt. It's all balanced and perfectly integrated. Unquestionably a quaffer. But also a proper wine. Cheers to saline.

Blend of Riesling and Gewürtztraminer. Floral nose. Good acidity, off-dryish

Passion fruit nose, acid in front and a super nice round body - a keeper!

Clear with a straw color. Flora nose and honeysuckle. Semi-dry very dry finish. Initially sweet with a flora almost soapy chamomile note.
