Try:

2015 Mas Amiel Vertigo  ($19.99)
Plush orchard fruit and melon notes with soft acidity and a lengthy, smooth finish. Full-bodied and richly textured, the Vertigo Blanc is a combination of white Grenache, Maccabeau, Roussanne and Marsanne.

2013 Janare Falanghina ($17.99)
Falanghina is a fun fall white that leads perfectly into early winter. Full-flavored but with brilliant acidity to balance the soft tropical fruit flavors. Hints of pumpkin and baking spices make the Janare an awesome pairing for big holiday meals.

2014 Muga White ($14.99)
Famed Spanish white grapes Viura and Malvasia are barrel-fermented to give a creamy, smooth mouthfeel. Pineapple, pear and vanilla on the palate softened by hazelnut and just a smidge of toffee.

2015 Wyatt Chardonnay ($12.99)
Winter’s flagship white is Chardonnay, of course, and no list would be complete without a rich, oaky California entry. We love the Wyatt year after year, with its intense cedar and baking spice notes, lots of vibrant tropical fruit and creamy caramel on the finish;

2015 Mendel Semillon ($29.99)
Intensely floral on the nose with honeysuckle and orange blossom over laid with tropical fruit, smoke and almond. Big and bold with vibrant acidity to balance the deep fruit and spice notes. Silky mouthfeel and a long, lingering finish.
