Light, fruity wines with fragrance and a double dose of that all important “yum-factor” are perfect for this pairable veggie partner. Wine educator Stephanie Davis thinks this German Riesling from Schlossgut Diel in the Nahe wine region has all that and more. It is a kabinett wine, referring to the “drier style” of German wines with the highest quality. This bottle is more accurately described as not-hardly-sweet, so don’t be dissuaded when Stephanie mentions the word “dry.” ($22/bottle)
