"Bottled with 8.5% alcohol, the 2015 Riesling Dr L offers a clear, fresh, delicate and slightly smoky bouquet of crushed stones and ripe fruits. Round, piquant and racy, with a good grip and stimulating finish, the 2015 tastes much less sweet than usual and is a lovely wine for thirsty throats." (WA)

"While unabashedly sweet and simple, this luscious, lip-smacking wine is full of ripe pink grapefruit and tangerine flavors. Zippy acidity sharpens the midpalate and drives a lingering, fresh finish. Drink now through 2019." (WE)

Winery Notes:
Under close to perfect conditions, we were able to harvest grapes with optimal must weights and acidity levels, producing wines in all quality levels. The vintage also gave us excellent yields, with a beautiful balance of ripeness and acidity. The wines are dense and concentrated, but with the delicate and graceful style of the Mosel and affordable price, the Dr. L Riesling is the ideal welcome wine for every gathering, and an excellent partner for many dishes. A perfect pour for brunch, its flavors complement everything from rich eggs and hollandaise to sweet waffles and salty ham. It’s also excellent with Asian noodle dishes and salad rolls, especially if there is a touch of heat involved.
