When Ernst Loosen (pronounced loh-zen) assumed ownership in 1988, he realized that with ungrafted vines averaging 60 years old in some of Germany’s best-rated vineyards, he had the raw materials to create stunningly intense, world-class wines.

The Dr. Loosen estate has been in the same family for over 200 years. When Ernst Loosen (pronounced loh-zen) assumed ownership in 1988, he realized that with ungrafted vines averaging 60 years old in some of Germany’s best-rated vineyards, he had the raw materials to create stunningly intense, world-class wines. To achieve this, Ernst dramatically reduced his crop size and stopped all chemical fertilization, preferring only moderate use of organic fertilizers. And, most importantly, he turned to gentler cellar practices that allow the wine to develop its full potential with a minimum of handling and technological meddling. Read less

Dr. Loosen's entry-level Riesling is a highly quaffable summer tippler - perfect, in fact to accompany those less heady reading moments under the sunscreen. Good citrus and apple on the nose with a hint of sharpness that bears out in the tasting. Nicely off-dry with just enough acidity to impart a clean mouth-feel to what is predominantly green apple and lime. Very good value.

Lots of minerals and sour apple. semi-sweet but after some time open the sugar subsides a bit. Great pairing for pad thai.

Nice, rich emollient, wine which is off dry with a nice acidity which keeps it fresh.

An off-dry Riesling with all that peach fruit character you've grown to love. Reach for this entry-level Riesling any time you're in the mood for a fresh, fruity white with a touch of sweetness.
