Wine Review: This pale yellow colored offering opens with an attractive mild Bartlett pear bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, incredibly well-balanced, and shows gentle acidity. The flavor profile is a very tasty lemon lime with a hint of peach and spice. A few tasters ddetected an undercurrent of mineral as well. The finish is semi-dry and very enjoyable. This is a very food friendly Riesling. It would pair well with baked ham with brown mustard and sliced pineapple. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: (The Slate of Bernkastel)Bernkasteler Lay (pronounced LIE — an old dialect word for "slate") is situated around the Dr. Loosen estate house, directly along the Mosel, just outside the village of Bernkastel. As the name indicates, the soil is predominantly blue slate. This site has a gentler slope than the estate's other vineyards. It produces richly textured, assertive wines. This densely packed Dr. Loosen Riesling Kabinett shows both elegance and strength in its aromatic intensity and concentrated texture.
