(From 2013 Vintage) This crisp, refreshing quaff from the Loosen family who grow only Riesling has notes of green apple, melon, slate, herbs and citrus tastes of pears and apples. With spice and hints of lemon-lime on the finish, it’s off dry, refreshing and loves spicy Thai dishes.
(From 2011 Vintage) Dr. Loosen’s non-estate wine embodies the elegant and racy style of classic Mosel Riesling. It is refreshing and fruity, with a fine mineral edge that is typical of the region. Dr. L Riesling is made with fruit that comes exclusively from traditional vineyards with steep slopes and slate soil. By working closely with local growers on long-term contract, brothers Ernst and Thomas Loosen are able to maintain excellent quality in every vintage. Dr. L Riesling is bottled with a screwcap to avoid cork problems and to preserve freshness.
