Light, fruit, pecan tarts. Finishes on honeydew and apple crisp.

Butter upfront, but washes away quick. Somehow not unpleasant. Straightforward. Oh, some lemon. Neat!

Too buttery for me. But it’s light body and a tad acidic. Smells of burnt brown sugar with a light citrus note.

Honied apples, dried flowers and a lingering whisper of vanilla brown sugar.

Phenomenal. Very floral nose. Super bright and acidic like a Loire chenin but with more of a savory, almost yeasty finish replacing the minerality you’d expect from a vouvray or montlouis. $21 at Psychic Wines.
