This Australian white wine-a combination of 58% Viognier and 42% Marsanne with 13.5% alcohol-has a very pale straw color with bouquet that reminds one of white flowers. Its texture is rich, almost dry, and just the right acidity, with a pleasant peach-pit bitterness in the finish.

As its name implies, goes well with shellfish. Costs US$16.99
