Washington wineBest Buy! This white wine from one of the Northwest’s top Riesling producers combines modest alcohol with pretty fruit. It opens with aromas of rose water, lime and slate, followed by flavors of pear, pineapple cake and spices. There’s a bit of residual sugar that is expertly balanced with bright acidity. The result is a wine with a rich, round midpalate and a yummy finish. Pair this with spicy pho, Thai curry, rich Indian dishes or Caribbean cuisine.
