Nice. Crisp and refreshing, just the way I like them with nicely balanced fruit and acidity. - Tasted at Marché Bacchus 3/6/10 Read more

Fresh yet slightly sweet and thick, would be good crowd-pleaser at a Spring picnic or event, tastes of green apple, wet stone, and peach with a glycerin sheen, medium acid, medium body, with fruit lingering in a short-to-average finish. Nose of wet stone and fruit. I also liked the low alcohol of 8.5%, good for crowd control. Paired nicely with fresh fruit, a champagne mango from Mexico. Might serve best around 60 deg F.

Nice Riesling especially for the price, about $11. I had this over a year ago at Thanksgiving and I still remember how smooth it was with such a pleasant sweetness that didn't go over the top. I will have to revisit this one soon. 4/5

This wine has drinkability written all over it. The fact that it has a mere 8.5% alcohol level makes it popular as a summer quaffer. This pale gold off-dry Riesling has aromas of peach and lemon/lime. The wine contains a balanced mix of flavors between fresh lemon acidity, flinty mineral, some spiciness, and a hint of tropical fruit at the end.

Lime and slate on the nose, palate of lime juice, peach juice, and slate, with just a touch of sweetness and good acidity. Great with Thai food.

This was a fanatastic riesling for the price, Dr. L does it again. Great nose and better flavor, not much else to say, drink it and see what you think, you can't lose

#62 on 2009 Top 100; Sleek and tangy, showing apricot, lime and mango flavors matched to a lively structure. There's good harmony and persistence through the finish.

This wine was just selected as "Wine of the Year" in the latest edition of The Wine Trials" , a book that blind tastes under $15 wines against $50 and up counterparts. Dr. Ernst Loosen is a superstar winemaker in Germany’s Mosel River valley. His wines routinely bring high scores from critics worldwide. He works with his brother Thomas on this easy-drinking best buy Riesling, all with grapes from the steep-sloped, slate-infused vineyards flanking the Mosel. Just off-dry, it’s an ideal aperitif to pair with smoked salmon, goat cheese and charcuterie. Wine Spectator ranked it #62 on their Top 100 Wines for 2009 with a 90 point score saying “Sleek and tangy, showing apricot, lime and mango flavors matched to a lively structure. There's good harmony and persistence through the finish. Drink now through 2018.”
