Dr. Loosen Riesling Dr. L 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Dr "L" Loosen Riesling is the epitome of a German riesling. This is the wine the winemakers of Germany attempt to emulate for their entry level wines. Attractive aromas of pineapple and fresh greens giving way to flavors of honey, spice and melon.

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

Well balanced sweetness. Fantastic with spicy foods. incredibly drinkable. The notes are a fairly intriguing and a bit difficult to distinguish for me. Slight hints of greens with some fruitiness on the nose. clean and refreshing on the palate.

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.
