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

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.

What a pleasant surprise. It is a great buy in a very pleasant Riesling. Perfect summer every day wine.

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

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