Dry Riesling Reviews
89 Points. BEST BUY! Tart, chewy, tangy, mixing apple, lemon, grapefruit and pear - lots of fruit with pear skin phenolics. It's dry, but not stripped, full and fleshy, with the low sulfur giving it less sharpness and a broader middle.

88 Points. BEST BUY! Light, bright, dry and juicy, with green apple and floral flavors, hinting at lemon as the finish lingers. Drink now through 2011.

87 points! Green-tinged yellow. Stone fruits, smoke and minerals on the nose, with a fusel hint. Supple, round and dry, with good concentration and persistence for a wine in this price range.

Lives up to its billing with a dry, stony, mineral character that also show lime pith, unripe pear and a hint of ripe citrus on the finish.

86 Points! Crisp and refreshing, barely off-dry, with lively pear and floral flavors.

Of all the Pacific Rim wines, the dry Riesling is the most versatile — both on and off the food court. I found it focused and complex, layered with notes of apricot, peach, pear and lime along with minerals and the intriguing, aromatic signature of good Riesling that is often described as "petrol" or wet stone.

Crisp acidity and aromas of lime and green apple make this a great food wine...This wine is a good expression of a classic trocken (dry) Riesling style.

If you're a Pinot Grigio drinker and don't think you like Riesling, try this. It's dry, with a delightful orange-blossom nose. Smooth, citrusy palate with lemon-lime notes and ginger on the finish. Remarkably elegant for the price.

Spices, stone fruit and flowers on the nose. Very crisp and essy to drink, with a long, citrusy finish.

With distinct diesel but delicate stone fruit aromas, this Riesling's not quite bone-dry, but it's crisp, with tart apricot, tangerine, and lime flavors, in that order. A steal!
