Dr. Loosen Riesling Dr L Dry 2014

Editorial Review by Snooth Editorial:

Intriguing cool tropical fruit aromas with banana, papaya and melon and floral notes of rose petal and honeysuckle. Brightly acidic in the mouth and leading with green apple and pear flavors, a hint of melon and a finish that's ever so slightly creamy with notes of lemon zest.

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.

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.

As usual this was a superb example of how to take great grapes, make a ton of great wine and price it a price that everyone can enjoy. Green apples, citrus and lemon dominate the nose and palate leading to a wonderful finish that is both lengthy and mouthwatering. Drink now - drink forever. Paul 90 points
