The Origin of Clean Slate

In the Mosel river region of Germany, hills are decorated with vineyards of the world’s most celebrated Riesling vines.

It is here that you can find the origin of Clean Slate, a flavorful riesling that was named "Best Riesling" at the 2006 San Francisco International Wine Competition.

What is Riesling?

Originating in the Rhine region of Germany, Riesling is an aromatic grape variety displaying flowery, almost perfumed, aromas as well as high acidity, and is used to make dry, semi-sweet, sweet & sparkling white wines.

Why are Riesling's so sweet? The amount of residual sugar (grams of sugar per litre of wine) determines the sweetness of the riesling. With Riesling's high acidity, it naturally makes the taste and flavors sweeter than other types of white wines.

Riesling wines are often consumed when young, when they make a fruity and aromatic wine, which may have aromas of green or other apples, grapefruit, peach, honey, rose blossom or cut green grass, and usually a crisp taste due to the high acidity.

Clean Slate's Taste Profile

Clean Slate is known and has been acclaimed for its refreshing and unique taste profile.

With its peach aromas, lime notes, lively acidity and hint of mineral & spice, Clean Slate was awarded the Gold Medal at the 2007 San Francisco International Wine Festival, has been named "Best Buy" by Wine Enthuiast magazine and was recently chosen as one of the top 150 wines under $15 in the new edition of Wine Trials 2010.
