Top Ten Best Rieslings

5. Dr. Fischer Riesling Kabinett Ockfener Bockstein (2010)

« Prev Next » 5 of 10
Average price: $18.49 from 10 stores
This is lovely on the nose, deep and focused, drawing you into the glass with faintly dusty slate and spice aromas framing the core of melon rind and lemon pith fruit. This is just so tense on the palate, with vibrant acids just covered by a veneer of sweetness. The fruit is ripe and fresh, citrusy with green apple peel accents, but it competes with the strong mineral quality here which scrapes slate across the tongue and onto the long, sweet apple and faintly apricot-tinged yet mineral-dominated finish. This is exciting in the mouth. 91pts

  • 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.

  • 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...
