From the Rueda region of Spain comes Bodegas Naia Rueda ($14.99), made from 100 percent Verdejo grapes, which produce soft, aromatic white wines that are medium- to full-bodied. ---

Winemaker Eulogio Callega ages this wine 12 percent sur lie in French oak and the remaining 88 percent in stainless steel. The end result is gorgeous floral perfumes upon opening the wine, with grapefruit, pear, white peach and lime flavors coursing through the mid-palate.

Bodegas Naia Rueda is a crisp, bracing palate cleanser, making it a no-brainer for grilled fish and other seafood dishes and an interesting detour from more common Sauvignon Blanc. Overall, it's an elegant wine for the price.
