Fills the need for a light poolside quaffer, combining aromas of fresh greens, lime and apple with a hint of slate-driven minerality. Green apple and citrus flavors could use a little more length and intensity, but overall it’s nicely balanced, crisp and focused.
A wine that shows it is possible to make a good Riesling at a reasonable price, the 2010 from Clean Slate offers up basic apple and citrus flavors. Hints of crushed stone and spring flowers elevate it above the ordinary, as does the mouthwatering finish of this off-dry wine. Drink now.
