Pair with green salads, grilled fish or shellfish and crudités.

2012 Falernia Pedro Ximenez Reserva ($10) This flinty, citrus-inflected white comes from one of Chile’s northernmost wine regions, the 
arid Elqui Valley.

2012 Sábrego Godello ($14) The steep, rocky vineyards of northwest Spain’s remote Valdeorras region provide 
the grapes for this minerally white.

2011 St Hallett Poacher’s ($14) 
A touch of Riesling 
lifts the aromas of 
this zesty Australian Sauvignon Blanc–Sémillon blend from the Barossa.

2012 Terrazas de 
los Andes Reserva Torrontés ($15) Torrontés is a tricky grape. Made poorly, 
it’s cloying; made well, as this one is, it’s elegant and aromatic.

2012 St. Urbans-Hof Estate Riesling ($17) This German Riesling from the Mosel is very lightly off-dry, but it’s 
so zippy and intense that the sweetness barely registers.
