"Shows nice minerality up front, with an off-dry profile and refreshing acidity. Direct, but would please most. Drink now. 105,000 cases made. -Aleks Zecevic " (WS)

"Really juicy with a ton of apple and pear character. A very crisp finish. Yes, there is also has some sweeetness in there, but the balance is spot-on. An ideal wine for spicy seafood dishes. Drink now or in 2019. " (JS)

Winery Notes:
THE MOSEL REGION:
Located in far western Germany, the Mosel valley’s steep, southfacing slopes create the perfect climate for Riesling, giving the vines ideal exposure to the sun. The cool climate allows the grapes to ripen slowly while retaining bright acidity.

DR. L RIESLING:
This entry-level Loosen Bros. Riesling embodies the elegant and racy characteristics of steep, slate-soil Mosel vineyards at a very reasonable price. It is a bright, vibrant, fruit-driven wine made with grapes from contracted growers throughout the Mosel River valley who work very closely with brothers Ernst and Thomas Loosen to achieve excellent quality and superb concentration in every vintage. We call it our “Welcome to the Mosel!” wine.
