Clean Slate 2009 Riesling

Rieslings are one of my favorite white wines and the drier the better. Clean Slate produces a very nice crisp Riesling. It had citrusy notes on the nose with a subtle lemongrass aroma. The flavors were of peach, apricot, some pear, and mineral notes with a hint of lime on the finish. $10.99 for a 750 ml bottle is a pretty decent buy for an imported Riesling. I ended up pairing this with a buffalo chile over egg noodles that was spiced just right – not too hot, not too cool and the Riesling complemented the meal pretty well.
