Riesling Reviews

Grgich Hills 2020 Miljenkos Selection Riesling
89 points
Straw color. Aromas of cherry blossom and marigold flowers with a medium-to-full body and a medium-to-long apricot, hints of lemon, orange and citrus zest, and chalkboard finish. A round, richer style of Riesling that would stand up to bigger dishes.
Weingut Bastgen 2020 Weisenstein Spätlese Trockenn Riesling
88 points
Straw color. Aromas of white peach, white flowers, and tropical fruit notes with a medium-to-full body and a medium-to-long grilled pineapple, white flowers, lychee, and oyster shell finish. A well balanced, mineral driven wine for all occasions
White Pine 2020 Semi-Dry Reserve Riesling
86 points
Yellow straw color. Aromas and flavors of spiced poached apple and pear and peach pastry with a silky, bright, fruity light-to-medium body and a smooth, amusing, medium-long finish with impressions of grilled quince and lemon, ripe apricot, and pickled melon with no oak flavor. A round and flavorful Riesling that is a pleasure to drink.
Barefoot NV  Riesling
82 points
Silvery straw color. Curious aromas of old rubber band ball, dried candle drippings and wicks, pumpkin guts and seeds, and rubber pool toy with a supple, bright, off-dry light-to-medium body and a brisk honeyed peaches, golden raisins and pears, white grape skins, and fruit salad finish with no oak flavor. A earthy and sweet Riesling for cheeses and such.

Black Box 2019  Riesling
81 points
Straw color. Aromas of raisin bran cereal, yeasty panettone, and flat mineral water with a lean, shy, fruity thin body and an even, brisk peach skin and pit, melon rind, and apple bobbing water finish with no oak flavor. A shy Riesling sipper.
