I think some of the other reviewers have been a little tough on this guy.This is a sweeter riesling for sure and if you're looking for dry this will Not fit the bill. What it is is a nice clean (apropos no?) drinkable riesling. Begins with a tart nose with honey and apple. I agree with the reviewer who mentioned slate on the palate -- it's here and balances out the sweetness well. Good deal of acid. Pretty long finish that isn't syrupy. I should add it goes nicely with foods, I had it with garlicky sausage and found it a nice companion. At 10.99, this is an accessible example of one variation of riesling. At much more you might be better served elsewhere, but as a go-to everyday wine, it's a keeper.

I was delighted to find a Riesling with character! Clean Slate is clean and crisp like granny smith apples without being too sweet (thank God for that), and has a pleasant lingering finish. I paired it with an Thai peanut salad, but I would also enjoy it with sushi, spicy wings, or any zesty salad. Heck, it has enough character to stand on its own as well.

Nose is crisp with a slight citrus note (somewhere between lime and orange blossoms). Nice balance between sweetness and acidity--more sweet than tart. While this wine is very nice, I actually prefer rieslings a little more on the dry side.

Crisp and clean and buttery. Just sweet enough with a kind of peppery or tingling on the back of the tongue. Great by itself, but I cooked scallops and made killer sauce with this as well!

A terrific buy! Aromas of apple blossom with a crisp, mineral taste that is very enjoyable. A bubbly feel and a tad sweet. Love it!

    Less sweet than most. Best buy given the low price.

    Wine Tasting NotesClean Slate is a refreshing, new Riesling from the steep slate hills of Mosel-Saar-Ruwer, Germany. The wine is fresh and balanced with peach aromas, a characteristic hint of mineral and a long, clean finish.

    The Clean Slate Riesling is a great food wine. It has wonderful fruity flavors, and a nice crispness. It has a lively acidity that makes your mouth tingle. A very nice wine for sushi!
