Although a light and fruity white might not be your typical Winter wine, if you're looking to pair something with a spicy bowl of Asian soup, like I was on a recent evening, pick up a bottle of this affordable German Riesling from Schloss Vollrads. You don't have to properly pronounce its name to enjoy the subtle deliciousness of this easy-to-drink white. Unlike some traditional Rieslings, it's not overly sweet. Instead it's perfectly balanced with a clear, pretty straw color, lovely texture, and crisp apple flavor. There's no cork on the bottle; it's sealed with a glass topper that you can save and use on other bottles, so this Riesling makes a nice hostess or dinner party gift.
