Clean Slate Mosel 2009 Riesling

Clean Slate Mosel 2009 Riesling, $7.99-$12.99, 90 points, is another simple, but wonderfully delicious Riesling from Germany that is sweet, but not throughout sweet; without being over-the-top, Clean Slate has managed to incorporate enough minerality and enough acidity to give a sense of having a nearly off-dry white wine with balance.
A light lime hue off-sets a clear water color.
The nose is a provoked delight of lemon and lime with just a hint of Lychee nut and grapefruit.
The light and crisp body carries mostly citrus and kiwi, with a finish that is tart and refreshing.
If you are a low budget semi-sweet white wine lover, if you can go either way, if refreshment and great flavor is what you want in a simple package, this wine is for you. Let me know, but for $7.99 you can't go wrong.
