Some white wines are described as aromatic varieties which
usually refers to gewurztraminer, pinot gris and riesling.
These are fragrant when you swirl and sniff them and are
usually made simply in stainless steel tanks, although some
gain texture by being left on lees in old barrels.
Even in good vintages like 2013 in Hawkes Bay, most merlots
and blends benefit from extra bottle age to allow the
sometimes rough edges of youth to mellow. When the premium
2013 reds are released, expect some fine wines.
Sauvignon blanc can bring a fresh breath of summer into the
dark and cold of winter, but the richer, oaked versions,
sometimes called fumé (smoky) blanc, have more complexity and
interest and can be worth lingering over.
