For those looking for a sweeter, softer ride, this smooth sipper from Australia’s Adelaide Hills is like a Porsche with loose suspension. A complex blend of five grapes ranging from the racy, spicy gewürztraminer grape to earthy sémillon, it’s evocative and full of fruit. Peaches, vanilla and roasted walnuts complete the package. 4 stars out of 5. Sweetness=4 out of 10 (dry to sweet). $16
