This full-bodied, well-rounded sauvignon blanc stands out in an otherwise undistinguished line of California wines produced under the name of the legendary Australian golfer.

It lingers on the palate in a most satisfying way. 2008 Greg Norman California Estate Sauvignon Blanc From: North Coast, Calif. Price: $15 Serve with: Salmon, ham, Asian cuisine

Lisa Lee has done it again. After selling Umi Sake, the uber-popular Asian food restaurant in Cockeysville, Lee scooted a couple miles up York Road, opening a new restaurant, Fusion, in April of last year. At Fusion, Lee stuck with what she knows best: crowd-pleasing, Americanized food from across the Asian continent. The food is paired with an enthusiastic staff that knows the menu and isn't afraid to sell it, creating a deservedly popular dinner spot. Scene & Decor From the outside, Fusion looks a lot like a tiny dive bar. With few windows and a small, neon "open" sign, it seems like the type of place where people might go for cheap beer and big trouble (before opening Fusion, Lee did briefly run a bar in the space)

From: Vinos de Madrid, Spain Price: $12 Serve with: Grilled seafood, Asian cuisine Even after more than 25 years of reviewing wines, there are new discoveries to be made. Malvar is a little-known white wine grape indigenous to Spain. This example is quite distinctive, with a piercing but refreshing acidity balanced by generous flavors for orange, grapefruit, lime and spices. With no oak influence, it's a real wake-up call for a tired palate and an excellent value in a dry white.

Canton Square is known for a lot of things: fun nights out, high-energy bars, easy access to Miller Lite. What's not on that list? Calming surroundings and top-notch Asian food. Shiso Tavern, which opened in June in the space formerly occupied by Cosmopolitan and, most recently, by Te Amo, just might change that. Owners Mel Carter and Brett Lockard understand what it takes to create a Canton-area hot spot: They're also the team behind Blue Hill Tavern and Tavern on the Square.

This well-rounded, youthful white wine may not reach the pinnacles of complexity, but it's an excellent value for under $10. And it's a lot of fun. This Rhone-style blend of white grenache, viognier and marsanne is a dry wine but very fruity, with flavors of pear and strawberry and citrus. (The name is a pun on Cotes du Rhone, but some French vintners don't see the humor.) 2009 Goats do Roam White From: South Africa Price: $9 Serve with: Full-bodied fish, Asian cuisine

This is neither a typical nor an average sauvignon blanc. Matanzas Creek has a style all its own, and it certainly ranks in the top 1 percent of sauvignon blancs worldwide. The flavor profile is not the typical mouthful of grass and herbs. Fig is the dominant flavor, seasoned with nuances of citrus, pear, herbs, Asian spices and vanilla. It is much deeper, richer and more complex than most sauvignon blancs. While it's on the expensive side for a sauvignon blanc, it's a bargain for a great white wine.

The Red Parrot is far from the first restaurant in Baltimore to mix Asian cuisines on its menu. But it might be setting a giddy new standard. The cuisines keep coming — and never seem to stop. Among the first listed appetizers are Japanese spring rolls, Malaysian roti, Vietnamese spring rolls and Thai golden calamari. Among the noodle dishes are Singapore rice noodles with ground pork, yaki udon, pad Thai and pho. Such a mix would be a stretch at many restaurants, but this newcomer in Locust Point's McHenry Row development handles its far-ranging menu with competence and panache.

From: Germany Price: $14 Serve with: Pork, ham, Asian cuisine There was a time when a fine German wine would carry a name such as Eitelsbacher Karthauserhofberg Riesling Kabinett Halbtocken. The Germans have made a big swing in the direction of simplicity lately, and it doesn't seem to have had a bad effect on wines such as this delicious dry gewurztraminer. This is a pleasantly spicy, vibrantly fresh wine with more structure and verve than the typical German gewurztraminer.

The Blue Garden is a triple threat among Asian restaurants, specializing in Korean, Japanese and Chinese food, and handling each cuisine amazingly well.Mr. and Mrs. Chong So have owned their restaurant on Ritchie Highway for 16 years, serving mostly Chinese and Korean dishes. Last year, they remodeled, added a sushi bar and Korean barbecue tables, and expanded their menu to include more Korean and Japanese fare.We sat in the front room of the Blue Garden, where tables are thick, lacquered slices of tree trunks, outfitted with stainless-steel grills for Korean barbecue.

For lovers of Asian flavors, organic and local food and, of course, noodles, the new Republic Noodle in Federal Hill hits a sweet spot. Owners David Lynch and Christopher Boylan — who live nearby — opened the Asian restaurant in September, hoping to make it a new neighborhood favorite. With Lynch and chef de cuisine Henry Hong, formerly of Suzie's Soba, working the wok, and a menu gathering flavors and cooking methods from across the continent (the name "Republic Noodle" is a nod to the pan-Asian approach)

Though its name might lead you to think otherwise, Aloha Tokyo does not serve Hawaiian food. The Aloha refers to the look of this cute neighborhood restaurant, which is done up like a Hawaiian tiki bar, with a bar made of bamboo, wicker stools and fake-flower leis adding bursts of sunny color. In fact, the restaurant, which opened in Locust Point in September, serves Japanese and Korean food, sometimes fusing the two cuisines in unusual ways. Owner Seonpil Kim said he grew up in Korea and then moved to Tokyo, where he owned a similar restaurant.
