Serve with:

Shellfish, Thai or Vietnamese cuisine

This pioneering Washington state winery long has been known for its rieslings, but until this year its dry version of the famous German white varietal had been sold only in the Pacific Northwest. It's good to see it go national because it's a crisp, fruity version that is quite dry but not overly severe. There's plenty of complexity here - apple, peach, pear, spices, coconut and minerals - and stylishness, too, for the price.
