#9 on The Washington Post 12 Best Bargain Wines of 2023

 Karl Kaspar Riesling Kabinett 2021

“This wine should help convince riesling skeptics: fruity, beautifully balanced”


“This wine should help convince riesling skeptics: fruity, beautifully balanced between sweetness and acidity, and low-alcohol. Try this with spicy food, garlicky dips, grilled seafood — or just about anything. Most of all, don’t worry about sweetness — the key is the balance with the fruit and acidity. Alcohol by volume: 8 percent. Bottle weight: 400 grams (Light).”

Keuka Lake Vineyards Dry Riesling 2021

“a stony dry riesling from the glacier-carved Finger Lakes”


“Here’s another shout out for Finger Lakes riesling to have a place on your table at Thanksgiving — or any time that calls for a dry white with bracing acidity to match a variety of foods. This lovely riesling is on the mineral side — more an impression of stones than citrus fruits.”
