Best Buy! Two dozen of the Woodinville giant’s 45 career Platinums have been for work with Riesling, and this is the world’s largest bottling of the noble white grape from Germany. It rides the fine line between medium dry and medium sweet, bringing slices of peach and apricot, a tiny whiff of petrol because of its age, and a masterful amount of lime juice acidity to check the residual sugar of 2%. Enjoy with grilled fish, rice dishes, linguini in clam sauce or a plate of mild cheeses. Award: Rodeo Uncorked (gold).
