Aromatic White Grapevine Varieties
Certain winegrape varieties are by nature very aromatic and fruity in their flavor composition. Riesling, Gewürztraminer, various Muscats, Sauvignon Blanc and Viognier come immediately to mind. Others are not so well known in North America, but they certainly are interesting to the open-minded wine drinker with adventurous tastes. These include Albariño (from Galicia in Spain), Torrontes (also known as Torontel, from Argentina and Chile), Malvasia (Italy), Tocai Friulano (Italy), Aleatico (a red variety from Italy) and Moscophilero (Greece).
