Spring Forward With Rieslings

With tax day here, we thought it might be nice to unwind this evening with a good glass of wallet-friendly wine. In the March/April issue of Imbibe, writer Wes Marshall delves into the world of Riesling. This often-misunderstood wine is a perfect way to celebrate the flavors of spring, and it's also a category that offers some great values. So in addition to the suggestions we make in the magazine, here are a few more recommendations, which can all be found at DrinkUpForLess.com and DrinkUpNY.com:

2006 Dr. Konstantin Frank "Salmon Run" Riesling ($12.49)
This floral, fruity Riesling is incredibly versatile and a perfect match for chicken or fish.

2007 Josef Leitz Eins Zwei Dry Riesling ($12.99)
Enjoy this medium-bodied, peachy German Riesling with herb-roasted chicken.

2007 R Wines Marquis-Philips Roogle Riesling ($11.49)
This off-dry Aussie value offers plenty of tropical fruit on the finish, making it a great match for spicy Thai food, like a coconut curry.
