Wine Review: This translucent straw-colored Dry Riesling opens with an attractive ripe fruit bouquet that includes pear, melon and light lemon. I also noted hints of green apple, vanilla and a whiff of strawberries. On the palate, it is initially bubbly with a medium body. It also displays crisp, lively, and refreshing acidity. The flavor profile features pears, apricots, light green apple and white peaches with a tinge of flint. The acidity remains slightly elevated, but I felt it is integrated and balanced with the minerality. The finish is pleasant, dry and palate filling. I would pair this well-priced Dry Riesling from Dr. Loosen with salmon and fettuccine alfredo. – Joe

Winemaker Notes: This crisp, refreshing Riesling is the dry counterpart to the fruity, off-dry Dr. L Riesling. Together, these two wines represent the entry-level from Dr. Loosen, capturing the elegant and racy characteristics of steep, slate-soil Mosel vineyards at a very reasonable price. We call them our "welcome to the Mosel" wines.
