Clean Slate Riesling 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

"2005 Clean Slate Riesling, Mosel-Saar-Ruwer, Germany. Praise be the comprehensible and stylish label on this new-wave Riesling from the famously confusing German wine world. The grape and its origins are stated clearly on the front, and the artsy photo of slate rocks and the nifty name imply freshness and the promise of mineral-tinged fruit flavors. Sweetness is not an issue here: This wine is all about the perfect balance between demure peach-nectarine flavors and cleansing acidity. Chill well and serve with grilled seafood. Clean Slate has a clean, crisp taste profile with pure fruit flavors complimented by lively acidity, which is the trademark of Rieslings from Mosel-Saar-Ruwer. This appealing balance of fruit and crispness works well with a wide array of cuisines, making Clean Slate an exceptionally good match with food. "

Um, refreshing, herbal, not very long-tasting, not absorbing, good with scrambled eggs
