Increased warmth and sunshine in regions like Rhône Valley and Burgundy, France; and Sicily, Italy produce grapes that are then influenced by partial malolactic fermentation and/or oak aging. The resulting wines have a creamy texture and integrated acidity. Varietals include favorites like Grenache Blanc, Marsanne, Roussanne, and Chardonnay, and lesser known grapes like Carricante and Catarratto. Wonderful with lighter creamy dishes.
