Wakefield 2020  Riesling
94 points
$18
Best Buy
Brilliant yellow straw color. Aromas and flavors of pez candies, pear, mango skin, and ginger with a silky, lively, light body and a seamless, captivating, medium-length finish that shows accents of grapefruit, sweet banana, and pineapple with fruit tannins and no oak flavor. Hallmark peach and petrol notes and a long acid-driven finish will keep one coming back sip after sip.

Emerald straw color. Aromas and flavors of curry, cumin, ramps, and jalapeño chutney with a lean, lively, dry light-to-medium body and a tingling, delightful, medium-long finish that presents accents of grapefruit pith and capers with fruit tannins and no oak flavor. A savory, outspoken take on Sauvignon Blanc from the new world.

Golden straw color. Aromas and flavors of lemon grass, lemon poppy seed, ginger ale, and passion fruit with a soft, bright, bone-dry light body and a smooth, brisk finish with notes of ripe pear, white pepper, and white peach with fruit tannins and no oak flavor. An elegant Sauvignon Blanc in a refined and distinctive style; this is an exciting, somewhat Francophone take and is well worth a try for any lover of the varietal.
