105Stunning Kiwi Riesling! The nose is aromatic, full of uplifting citrus and floral notes. The palate delivers lovely depth of flavor, rich and dry with bright mandarin orange and honeysuckle. This single-vineyard Riesling shows good length and ends on a refreshing, vibrant mineral finish. Scrumptious with fresh scallops seared in butter. $24

073Clemens Busch and his wife Rita are on the frontline of biodynamic viticulture and minimal-intervention winemaking in the Mosel. Their 2011 Riesling Trocken (German: “Dry”) is loaded with mouthwatering citrus, ripe pear and a layer of stony minerality to boot. Pop a bottle with sautéed Korean catfish over sugar snap peas. $25

029ORGANIC. This Riesling is attractive, amiable and quite talkative. Brisk, fruity, well-balanced and dry, after the Alsatian fashion—don’t fear the Riesling, people. Drink it with rich, spicy fare, like Cajun-style shrimp étouffée over rice with crusty garlic bread. $25
