Fresh and fruity whites

Key notes: Vivacious fruit, smooth and concentrated.

Typical aromas and flavours: The fruit is to the fore and might be citrus or tropical. Often particularly good with food as the fresh yet fuller flavour can stand up to a range of dishes – even spicy ones.

Structure: Light-medium bodied. Wines are dry, but with a richer mouth-feel due to riper fruit.

Examples of 'Fresh and Fruity whites: Unoaked Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc, Viognier, Vermentino. Portuguese whites from the Dao, Douro and Alentejo. Sicilian whites such as Inzolia or Grillo.
