Clean Slate Riesling 2006

Clean Slate Riesling 2006
Origin: Mosel-Saar-Ruwer Germany
Blend: 100% Riesling
Alcohol content: 10.5%
Bottle closure: Screw cap
Purchase date: December 2007
Purchase price: $7.99

Taste profile from the winemaker: "... a clean, crisp taste profile with pure fruit flavors complimented by lively acidity, which is the trademark of Rieslings from Mosel-Saar-Ruwer. This appealing balance of fruit and crispness works well with a wide array of cuisines ..."

ABC Wines review: This disappointing wine lacks complexity. Moderately sweet, the fruit flavors are not well characterized and are overshadowed by a taste of honey. The finish is a bit crisp with mineral notes yet somehow flat. It paired reasonably well, however, with a spicy vegetable omelet. Over score: Below average, even at $8.
