"Best Buy, Pristine pink grapefruit and blossom notes extend from nose to finish in this fantastic value Riesling. Zesty and spry, it offers concentrated citrus and guava flavors filigreed by crystalline cuts of slate and steel. It's delicious already, but should hold through 2023. -Anna Lee C. Iijima" (WE)

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.
