Top Ten Best Rieslings

1. Alexana Riesling Willamette Valley Revana Vineyard (2011)

Next » 1 of 10
Average price: $27.49 from 8 stores
Intense and perfumed on the nose, with lime fruit framed by gardenia like floral notes; a suggestion of sweet vanilla and orange cream. Intense with super vibrant acids supporting really pretty ripe peach, lemon and green apple fruit that has a faintly candied edge. There's a little sugar here, but the intense acidity deftly whacks it to the ground and kicks it while it's down. The finish is all blazing citrus fruit riding a lightning bolt across a dry stony riverbed before smashing into a fruit basket filled with pears, apricots and tangerines topped with a hint of sweet spearmint. Maybe not the most complex Riesling out there but certainly one of the most fun. Shazaam! 93pts

  • 686649ted m I have a 1.5 litre 1997 Pewsey Vale Reisling signed by the winemaker. I think it may have just become a little more valuable.


  • 930415LenkaK Rieslings are fabulous:) in particular, I like Riesling Cuvée Elizabeth Stumpf and RIesling Grand Cru Eichberg from Maison Léon Baur, Alsace.


  • 204142micki525 Love Chateau St. Michelle Dry Riesling!


  • 1266839Heurich I have been to Oregon and Washington and honestly I think americans really over value price and quality their wines. I hardly ever drank any wine from Oregon and Washington that were outstanding.


  • 1347805sometime66 Snoother 1266839 is absolutely correct in addition I can say that the Alsatian Reislings are the top, with the exception of some very late harvest German products...think TBIA and hundreds of $$$$. Late harvest Alsatian gwurzs. are to die for...
