Heller Estate, Carmel Valley Chenin Blanc 2006
Juicy and fresh, this chenin blanc tastes like a summer fruit salad in a glass, echoing flavors of melons, peaches, pears, citrus, and more.
Palandri, Western Australia Riesling 2006 Not all Riesling comes sweet. Those from Western Australia tend to be very dry, with crisp fruit flavors (think granny smith apples, lemons and limes) and a steely finish. Intensely flavored, with plenty of bright acidity, they also can age well, developing enticing nuances of aroma and flavor over time. This particular example is delicious, and a steal at the price. ($12)
