Top Ten Best Rieslings

9. Wittmann Riesling Trocken (2010)

« Prev Next » 9 of 10
Average price: $25.89 from 15 stores
This shows some evolution on the nose with faint butcher's wax top notes over chamomile, anise flower, and dried citrus fruits with a gummy bear edge. Smooth and supple in the mouth, there’s a lovely spice of supportive acid here holding up dried heirloom apple fruits along with a faint edge of evolution adding anise flower spice notes and a touch of nuttiness to the palate. There's a lovely richness here, not from sugar but from ripeness that lends this some attractive power. The finish is a bit of let down, lean and ungenerous and possibly a sign that one should drink this sooner rather than later, but today this is showing quite well and deserves a nice sole meunière. Air helps the finish here, adding a really lovely and persistent baked apple note. 89pts

  • 943538Bentley Wines Completely ignore some great Reislings from Austria, Italy, Chile, Oregon, and Washington and others. Germany doesn';t have a lock for sure, never mind Australia-oh, and we should mention The Kiwis like Kevin Judd in NZ.A little Aussie jealousy maybe?

  • 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...
