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.

A great introduction to the delightful Rieslings of the Mosel, the Dr "L" is bursting with peach and apple flavors. Lively, refreshing, utterly delicious, and a tremendous value!

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 Points.Wine Spectator Best Value!

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.
