Wine Review: This almost clear colored entry-level Riesling from Dr. Loosen opens with lime, pineapple and pear like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, acidic and bracing. The flavor profile is a lime and orange blend with notes of minerality, lychee and pineapple. The finish is semi-sweet and tingly as its flavors linger nicely. This wine would be a nice aperitif to serve with spring rolls. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: This entry-level Dr. Loosen embodies the elegant and racy characteristics of steep, slate-soil Mosel vineyards at a very reasonable price. In spite of all the weather challenges of 2013, the quality of the wines is excellent, most especially the classic fruity style wines. The wines are clean and bright with a pronounced fruity aroma and the freshening lift of bright acidity. With its bright fruit, cleansing acidity, low alcohol (just 8.5%) and affordable price, the Dr. L Riesling is the ideal welcome wine for every gathering, and great for just about every course in a meal. A perfect pour for brunch, its flavors complement everything from rich eggs and hollandaise to sweet waffles and salty ham. It’s also excellent with Asian noodle dishes and salad rolls, especially if there is a touch of heat involved.

Good wine ruins the purse; bad wine ruins the stomach.
