Aromatic whites

Key notes: Aromas are the defining feature of this category; the sweetness or body of these wines may vary.

Typical aromas and flavours: Often floral; honeysuckle, jasmine, rose for example. Minerality comes through as a sense of sniffing pebbles. Fruit can be tropical, citrus and sometimes a 'sweetshop' fiesta of Turkish delight, lemon sherbet and rosy apples.

Structure: These wines may vary in 'weight' and dryness, but intensity of aroma and flavour is evident. Texture – can be oily, grainy, mineral.

Examples of 'Scratch 'n' Sniff' whites: Rieslings, Grüner Veltliners, Gewürztraminers, Torrontes, Viognier, Albariños, some Pinot Gris wines, some Sauvignon Blancs.
