Floral, Mouthfilling, Tension-Filled Alsatian Dry Riesling. $22

Exotic, electric Riesling brimming with notes of lime and honey

Riesling continues to be a severely underrated varietal. Its sweet examples can be transcendent and delicious, but it’s also capable of excellence in dry form. Pound for pound, dry Rieslings make up some of the best values in our portfolio.

We have exciting dry cuvées in stock from Germany and Austria. But for an everyday bottle, our favorite comes from Domaine Gross, a small, biodynamic family source in Alsace. It’s everything you want Riesling to be, all for under $5/glass.

Vincent Gross is a young, enthusiastic winemaker practicing biodynamic viticulture, and producing truly exciting wines. His 2020 is delicious, and the perfect antidote to a hot, muggy summer afternoon. The nose is an exotic mix of orchard fruits and wild herbal honey. The mouth is dry, quite full, and bursting with biodynamic complexity – look for honeydew melon, lime, lemon zest, apple and pear.

Serve this on its own — it’s a crisp, lively aperitif to match crackers or early evening snacks. For dinner, pair with a dish full of spices — think middle eastern or Indian. Or, if it’s been a long day — takeout sushi.
