Riesling Reviews

Grgich Hills 2020 Miljenkos Selection Riesling
89 points
$30
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
$40
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
$19
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
$6.99
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
$19.98
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.
