2007 Clean Slate Riesling – Mosel, Germany
Clear, pale lemon yellow with a little pétillance, or effervescence. Clean nose with light to medium intensity. Youthful aromas including green apple, lemon, lime, pineapple, slate, and anise star. Off-dry with medium acidity, body and light alcohol. Intense fruit flavors characteristic of the variety including apple and lime. Also some pear, orange, and floral notes with a soft minerality on the finish. Great pairing with spicy Phad Thai. For more wine notes and writing, visit Ryan’s blog oe•no•phile.
