SAVAGE GRACE “Underwood Mountain” Riesling 2016
(Columbia Gorge, Washington) $22
The idea of a riesling born in a gorge that’s been carved out by glaciers is appealing in summer—especially if that riesling is vivid and minerally with a fresh slap of acidity. I like rieslings that come onto the palate fast and focused. Chilled cold, there’s nothing better to drink on a late weekend afternoon when you’re spending a few hours in the kitchen, cooking. You can’t do that with a 15% alcohol wine (this one’s just 11.7%).
