“Clean Slate is well-known for Riesling from the Mosel, but they also deliver on this easy-drinking delight. Buy twelve or more for your next barbecue and please the entire crowd. Clean and light notes of strawberry and pink grapefruit on the nose. Very expressive palate of juicy citrus fruit - grapefruit and lemon with some cherry and strawberry notes with a lightly floral halo. Lots of buoyant acidity, fresh melon and a finish with a bit of apple and a touch of creaminess.”
“Spätburgunder, if you’re drinking in German, means “Late Burgundian” in reference to Pinot Noir’s late-season ripening. The words ‘crisp’ and ‘refreshing’ are used relentlessly in the description of white and pink wines so I’d love to be able to tell you this wine was ‘insouciant and diffident’ or something but the truth is, it’s crisp. And… refreshing. Your new BFF for spicy stuff is a noseful of raspberries and alpine strawberries, and the youthful acidity and wet-rock finish are lovely.”
“Clean Slate offers forward, fresh grapefruit and lemon flavors with just a hint of smoke in this offdry Riesling. It’s a straightforward yet consistently elegant wine for everyday enjoyment.” (Best Buy)
"A good introduction to Germany"s famed Mosel region (and a great value), this citrusy bottling is also widely available."

FOOD & WINE PAIRING: “This wine results from a partnership between German and American interests, hence the comprehensible, non-Teutonic name. But it’s simple: Pure citrus, ginger, and mineral notes make it a perfect match for the Sesame Noodle Salad with Tofu salad, and its hint of sweetness means that you can ramp up the chile as much as you want.”
