Wine Review: This pale white gold colored wine opens with a wet stone and lime like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is light to medium bodied, slightly effervescent, crisp, and shows forward acidity. The flavor profile is a mineral infused ripe lime and green apple. There is also a hint of apricot and tangerine in the background as well. The finish is sweet and nicely refreshing. This wine would be a nice aperitif. Serve it with bacon wrapped scallops. Enjoy - Ken
Winemaker Notes: This entry-level Dr. Loosen 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 who work very closely with brothers Ernst and Thomas Loosen to achieve excellent quality and superb concentration in every vintage.
