I'm not exactly sure why, but I usually avoid Rieslings when I'm shopping for white wine. I can never remember if it's pronounced re or ree, and worry that each bottle is going to be sickeningly sweet. However all of these fears and insecurities were blown out the door when I tried Wolf Blass's 2006 Yellow Label Riesling. Produced in Southern Australia, this wine is beautifully crisp and very citrusy. I shared it with the girls in the office and we were all wonderfully surprised and appreciative. It's a dry Riesling that will pair wonderfully with spicy seafood, raw shellfish, or a light pasta. With its affordable price (under $12) this bargain wine is one you will definitely want to try.
