2009 Clean Slate Riesling Mosel Germany 10% $10

Top Value!

Lovely nose with flowers, pear, a touch of honey and some mineral notes. Fairly dry and leaner than one might expect given that it’s a QbA. A bit apricotty in the mouth, with a round, soft sweetness and integrated acidity supporting the fruit. There’s a little sweet lemon here on the mid-palate.  Peachier flavors on the backend take on a shimmer of honey before the acidity kicks in the modest finish. A really nice, rather sophisticated effort. 87pts

    Glad to hear that Reinhartshausen has made it onto your list. My last visit there in 2009 was a bit disappointing and not showing what they are capable of doing. They had some really spectacular wines from the 1971 vintage until fairly recently. Let's hope they are back on track. Their 1983 Erbacher Siegelsberg Auslese was a monumental wine.
