At the restaurant it was $12 per glass. It was the first time having it and it was quite satisfactory although a buy overpriced. Very sweet, not as dry. Will definitely look for this next time when we hit our local winestore. I would recommend this wine.

Notes of apple and peach notes are backed by lively acidity.

The nose is overwhelmingly lemon/lime, but also a subtle stone aroma. There is a bit more residual sugar on the body than the outstanding '08 vintage of this wine, but despite the sweetness, the underlying flavors (same as the nose) are extremely pure. Good acidity and a nice finish. Extremely fresh now, but I think this has the potential to get more elegant with age. At only 8.5% ABV, it's very easy to drink the whole bottle in one sitting

Winemaker's Notes:

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.
