Best riesling wines?
That totally depends on your taste - dry, sweet, semi-dry, etc. Here's a link to a recent review of rieslings from the New York Times:
Full disclosure: I live in Washington State. So of course I will share Washington Rieslings with you from http://www.paulgregutt.com/2011/05/best-washington-wine-buys-of-month.html
"Saint Laurent 2009 Riesling; $12?Estate-grown grapes yield a Germanic wine, with 11.7% alcohol and 2.4% residual sugar. Bracing and succulent, it mixes orange and Meyer lemon fruit with an underlying minerality. ?
Mercer Estates 2009 Riesling; $14?Rather delicate, this well-crafted riesling mingles green apple, pear, lemon zest, grapefruit and melon fruit flavors. Good length and texture, with lemon tea flavors to finish.?
Crayelle Cellars 2009 Dry Riesling; $15?Tart and racy in an Australian style, with lemon/lime fruit wrapped in dry minerals. Juicy and fragrant."
Wow, great overview, SKK. Thank you.
