  1. 2009 Clos du Bois Riesling ($12)

Winemaker Erik Olsen sources grapes from California's Santa Lucia Highlands and Arroyo Seco for this affordable, off-dry bottling.

  • 2008 Leitz Leitz Out Riesling ($14)
  • From a top producer in Germany's Riesling-centric Rheingau region, this wine is slightly sweet but superbly balanced and citrusy.

  • 2009 Kilikanoon Mort's Block Riesling ($20)
  • The cool-climate Clare Valley produces most of Australia's best Rieslings, like this vibrant, lime-scented one.
