Dr. Loosen Dr. L Riesling 2018
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 SpectatorAn expressive, fruity version, showing immediate appeal. Quite quaffable, but lacks complexity. Drink now. 5,000 cases imported.
