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.
