We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

We had the opportunity to taste a full range of Dr. Loosen wines from the Mosel Valley with Ernst Loosen here at the Bottle Shop. All of the wines were very good to outstanding, This fruity, low alcohol Riesling which they call 'Dr. L' has delicate peach, grapefruit, apricot and mineral aromas and flavors with a long, juicy finish. It will pair well with Thai, Japanese and Chinese foods, as well as cheeses and pâté, or spicy, gingery seafood dishes. This charming quaffer would also be great for a day out on the boat with its easy-to-drink style and screwcap closure. We have carried this little bargain for 10+ years, and the 2008 and 2012 vintages were chosen as Wine Spectator Top 100 Wines of the Year.

Wine EnthusiastWhile 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.

Wine AdvocateBottled 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.
