Complex, bold and richly textured, these white wines from red grapes challenge convention. Grapes are pressed gently to avoid skin contact for wines with red-fruit notes, minus the color and tannins.\r\nCabernet Sauvignon\u00a0\r\nRivero Gonz\u00e1lez Blanco (Parras Valley)\r\nWhat It's Like:\u00a0Initial notes of peach skin, ripe pear and Golden Delicious apple tease your brain into thinking it\u2019s a traditional white, but raspberry comes as a surprise. The texture evokes tannins, which provide an enjoyable mental puzzle as you sip this sumptuous, complex wine.\r\n\r\nDid You Know?\u00a0Mexico\u2019s burgeoning wine scene is a playground of experiments that includes whites as well as unexpected red blends (Tempranillo and Nebbiolo, anyone?).\r\nSangiovese \r\nCantina LaSelva Sangiovese Bianco (Toscano)\r\nWhat It's Like:\u00a0The crystalline color belies the spectrum of flavors that erupt on the palate. Lively and juicy, the bright cherry and red berries normally found in Sangiovese shine through, along with nectarine and floral notes.\r\n\r\nDid You Know? Although Tuscany is best known for its reds, the first wine ever granted Denominazione di Origine Controllata (DOC) status in Italy was Vernaccia di San Gimignano, a Tuscan white wine.\r\n\r\n\r\nPinotage \r\nMellasat \u2211 White Pinotage (Paarl)\r\nWhat It's Like:\u00a0Texturally intriguing, the first sip is reminiscent of biting an apple. Tropical fruit, ripe banana and bitter almond flavors persist on the palate, while a slightly viscous and round mouthfeel are enlivened by bright acidity.\r\n\r\nDid You Know?\u00a0Considered the flagship wine of the estate, the 2017 vintage will mark the 10th anniversary of this rare cuv\u00e9e.\r\nTempranillo \r\nPradorey El Cuentista (Castilla y Le\u00f3n)\r\nWhat It's Like:\u00a0The floral, apricot, citrus and raspberry aromas are delicate, but this wine\u2019s got power. Robust, with good structure and length, you\u2019ll ponder for hours if it\u2019s better with fish or meat. (Hint: It goes well with both.)\r\n\r\nDid You Know? Pradorey ages this wine on lees from Verdejo to give it the desired lushness.
