ROBERT WEIL Riesling Spätlese 2021

(Rheingau, Germany) $45

Between now and New Years, this is what we all need—a wine that you can stand in the kitchen and just drink. Maybe you’re cooking. Maybe you’re just hanging out. But whatever you’re doing, here’s a wine that will light up your tastebuds for hours and leave you feeling perfectly fine. (It’s just 9% alcohol.) Robert Weil is one of the top producers of the Rheingau, and the estate’s Rieslings have so much delicious energy that the flavors virtually vibrate in your glass. I love this wine’s richness, crystalline purity, and crinoline crispness. In fact, Riesling is my favorite “winter white”—not only because I love to drink it while cooking anything and everything, but if dinner happens to be a slow-cooked pork roast? Oh man, the fireworks between the wine and the roast are off the charts.
