Top 5 under $12: Riesling

It's not easy finding great Riesling under $12, in fact it's a particular challenge since producers can always rely on their favorite crutch, sugar, when producing Rieslings. After working through over a case of value priced Rieslings I was becoming a bit discouraged, and then I hit on a series of wines from Washington state that made me take notice.

 

 

Washington is often overlooked when it comes to find wines, though I don't know where that leaves Michigan and the NY Finger Lakes who also produced a solid entry for this list. It's undeniable that Washington seems to be emerging as a great source for Riesling, though the marketplace has yet to take proper notice, meaning that it remains a lands of great values. So dive in here and take a look at today's Top 5 under $12: Riesling.

2. Murphy's Law Riesling (2010)

« Prev Next » 2 of 5
Average price: $13.99 from 1 store
This smells of mineral and lime, a touch muted perhaps but distinctly Riesling with a lovely base note of sweet/sour apple fruit. Bright and fresh in the mouth, this has a gentle sweetness that is well balanced by firm acidity all wrapped in a rather lightweight, fresh package. The palate delivers light apple fruit with a nice mineral edge that rolls over the moderately long finish. This is a find at this price. 87pts
