Ranging from very sweet to dry, Riesling is a wonderful wine option for the holidays. BEX Riesling 2014 ($10) is a delightful off-dry (just a trace of sweetness) white wine, from the Nahe region of Germany, with incredible pairing versatility. Sip BEX as an aperitif or serve it with light meals of fish and chicken, spicy Asian food, or even with dessert. A vivacious wine with a subtle effervescence, BEX Riesling dances across the palate with lively notes of grapefruit, peach, and mandarin orange that are balanced by a firm minerality. This lovely wine won a gold medal in the 2015 World Wine Championships and was rated 90 points and a "Best Buy." Only $10 and 10% alcohol, BEX is easy to sip and easy on the budget!
