Riesling is all about balance. This wine walks a tightrope between sugar and acid. Too much of either and it becomes either overpoweringly sweet or mouth-puckering sour. Yet when the balance is right, it is a pleasing wine for summer - an excellent companion for cold seafood, spicy salads, even barbecued ribs. As I sampled 18 foreign and domestic rieslings recently, I found many that fell off the tightrope, and several that succeeded. rob.kasper@baltsun.com How they fared Favorite Foreign Albert Seltz 2006 Vin D'Alsace Mittelbergheim, France 13 percent alcohol by volume, $16.99 Local distributor: Bacchus Importers Lean and clean, this pale white from Alsace had crisp, subtle fruit flavors.

This lightly sweet, low-alcohol (8.5 percent) German riesling is ideal for casual summertime quaffing. Its acidity balances out the sugar so that there's nothing cloying about it. It boasts lively and penetrating flavors of honey, apples, peaches, cherries and minerals, as well as a pleasingly creamy texture. The screw cap makes it convenient for picnics. Serve with spicy fried chicken, Southeast Asian cuisine.

Exported German wines fall into two basic categories, qualitatswein (QbA) and qualitatswein mit pradikat (QmP). The QbA wines can have sugar added in the fermentation process; the QmP wines cannot. The QmP wines are generally superior, but there are excellent QbA wines.There are five basic gradations of ripeness for QmP wines. In ascending order, they are kabinett, spatlese, auslese, beerenauslese and trockenbeerenauslese; the last two are expensive rarities made in only the ripest vintages.

1999 Karl Erbes Urziger Wurzgarten Riesling-Kabinett. Mosel-Saar-Ruwer ($12). Urziger Wurzgarten is one of the most distinctive vineyard sites in Germany -- if not the world. Here, the riesling grape takes on a distinctive flavor of fresh strawberries, which combines with the more typical Mosel nuances of slate, nuts, citrus, apple and pear. The Erbes wine is a glorious example of what the Urziger Wurzgarten (Spice Garden of Urzig) can produce when the wine is made in a lightly sweet kabinett style.
