Dr. Heidemanns-Bergweiler 2018 Riesling Auslese Bernkasteler Badstube - Bright, zesty lemon and grapefruit flavors accompany notes of nectarine, orange blossom, freesia and chamomile. The finish is off-dry but the acids accentuate the fruit flavors and carry them through to the finish. This is an excellent wine to pair with spicy dishes. This Riesling costs around $10 at Total Wine.
It starts with a subtle burst of lemon, grapefruit pith and gooseberry before showcasing a complete palate of white flower, saline, cream and wet stone. Crisp acids, a slight spritz and lingering fruit finish makes this a very drinkable wine. Nobilis can be purchased at Total Wine for around $6.
Fresh, lively lemon, gooseberry, chrysanthemum and talc flavors wash easily across the palate, leaving a splash of freesia in their wake. This moderately acidic wine will complement a variety of regional Greek dishes and light salads. This wine can be purchased at Total Wine for $12.
