DÖNNHOFF Oberhäuser Leistenberg Riesling Kabinett 2016

(Nahe, Germany) $22

Winter is a cook’s season. A cold Saturday; content hours in a warm kitchen making something that will simmer or roast all afternoon. I believe that to cook well, one has to drink wine at the same time—for flavor inspiration. The best “cooking wines” are bright, vivid, pure, thrillingly light, and low in alcohol. Like this exquisite Dönnhoff riesling. It’s a wave of delicious energy. It virtually vibrates with crystalline freshness. Dönnhoff is one of Germany’s finest artisanal producers. Their filigreed rieslings are wine as inspiration. (9% abv)
