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.
Three and a half glasses

Dr L embodies the elegant and racy style of Riesling from the steep, slate-soil vineyards of the Mosel Valley It is fruity and low in alcohol, with a refreshingly crisp taste that cools the palate, making it an excellent wine for spicy foods Apple and peach notes are backed by lively acidity in this elegant white Has nice balance and length-Bruce Sanderson Wine Spectator 88 PointsWine Spectator Best Value!
