Wine Review: This straw colored entry level Riesling from Dr. Loosen is a good value. It opens with a fragrant lime and tangerine bouquet. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, fresh, reasonably sweet and has lively acidity. The flavor profile is a mineral infused ripe peach and nectarine blend with notes of pear and ginger. The finish is remains pleasantly sweet and its acidity and flavors are nicely prolonged. This Riesling is very refreshing and would be perfect in between courses. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: This entry-level Dr. Loosen Riesling embodies the elegant and racy characteristics of steep, slate-soil Mosel vineyards at a very reasonable price. It is a bright, vibrant, fruit-driven wine made with grapes from contracted growers throughout the Mosel River valley. With its bright fruit, cleansing acidity, low alcohol (just 8.5%) and affordable price, the Dr. L Riesling is the ideal welcome wine for every gathering, and an excellent partner for many dishes. A perfect pour for brunch, its flavors complement everything from rich eggs and hollandaise to sweet waffles and salty ham. It's also excellent with Asian noodle dishes and salad rolls, especially if there is a touch of heat involved.
