The Clean Slate 2007 Riesling is a clean, refreshing Riesling that is very good during the warm summer months, provided you keep it well chilled. It will work well with most Chinese and Indian dishes, sushi, and probably anything that is mild-to-medium spicy. It might also be worth trying with various fish and pork dishes.

Clean Slate 2007 Riesling Tasting Notes & Review

Color & Clarity
The color of the 2007 Clean Slate Riesling is pale yellow with a little bit a gold, a green tinge, and a clear center.

Nose
The aromas of the 2007 Clean Slate Riesling are pleasant and consist of crisp apples, peaches, and some spices. If they were a bit stronger you'd probably enjoy just sitting and smelling the wine through your meal.

Palate
The flavors of this Clean Slate Riesling are much like the aromas: ripe apples and peaches. It's a light bodied white wine with medium sweetness, marked acidity, and is nicely balanced. The texture is fairly creamy.

Food Pairing
  • Mongolian Beef: When paired with Mongolian Beef, the 2007 Clean Slate Riesling becomes more tart and a bit tingly. This is definitely a nice combination that is worth trying.
  • Curry Chicken: This is a fair combination, with the Clean Slate Riesling becoming tarter and more spicy when paired with curry chicken.
  • General Tso's Chicken: The Clean Slate Riesling becomes fruitier and the sweetness is cut a bit when paired with General Tso's Chicken, making this an excellent combination.
  • Cheese Wontons: The 2007 Clean Slate Riesling becomes sweeter and more flavorful when paired with cheese wontons. I think that this wine would probably work very well with a variety of cream cheese based appetizers.

Bottom Line
The Clean Slate 2007 Riesling is a clean, refreshing Riesling that is very good during the warm summer months, provided you keep it well chilled. It will work well with most Chinese and Indian dishes, sushi, and probably anything that is mild-to-medium spicy. It might also be worth trying with various fish and pork dishes.
