Winemaker's Notes:

Ripe peach flavors balance lively acidity, hints of lime and characteristic mineral notes.

Complements a wide variety of food from grilled scallops and poached fish to poultry, ham and roast pork. The refreshing balance of acidity and fruit makes Clean Slate particularly well-suited to pair with intensely-flavored Asian dishes such as spicy noodles, sushi, curry, spring rolls and lettuce wraps.

About Clean Slate:

Clean Slate was born of a partnership between Moselland of Bernkastel-Kues, Germany and the Click Wine Group of Seattle, Washington. Moselland is the largest vineyard owner in the world-class region of Mosel-Saar-Ruwer and one of Germany's top exporters of Riesling. Known for its innovation and consumer insight, the Click Wine Group owns and imports unique wine brands that take the intimidation out of the wine buying process.

Credited with producing the finest Rieslings in the world, the slate soil of Mosel-Saar-Ruwer is where the long-ripening Riesling grape finds its most perfect grwoing conditions. Prolonged ripening allows for maximum flavor development from the terroir and a crisp, refreshing acidity with mineral notes. The result is a truly unique and elegant Riesling that is simply not possible to produce in warmer, early-ripening climates.
