At just $12, the 2008 Rudy Wiest Riesling from the Mosel Valley in Germany has notes of tangy green apples and lemon/lime fruit. It’s a perfect match with crab cakes. The 2008 Tamar Ridge Riesling from Australia ($20) has flavors of lemon, lime and pineapple with hints of tropical fruit and a touch of sweetness on the finish. It’s a good choice to pair with spicier Asian fare. The 2008 Chateau Ste. Michelle Eroica Riesling from the Columbia Valley in Washington State ($25) has fresh, slightly spicy flavors of orange, white peach, lemon and lime. It’s a nice, dry-style Riesling to pair with chicken or pork. Other wines to try: 2009 Stratford Riesling, Martinborough New Zealand ($20); Trimbach Cuvee Frederic Emile 2002 ($59)
