Wine Review: This straw-colored Riesling from Dr. Loosen opens with a mild petrol and light-yellow grapefruit bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied and delicately sweet with nicely integrated mild acidity. The flavor profile is a mild lemon tea with notes of pleasant mild minerality and Bosc pear. I also detected hints of pineapple, saline, and ginger. The finish remains pleasantly sweet and is nicely extended. This very good Riesling would pair nicely with soft macaroon cookies. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The insanely steep, red-soil Ürziger Würzgarten vineyard produces wines of a completely unique nature in the Mosel valley. The wines show the typically juicy and exotic fruit of the Grosse Lage (grand cru) "spice garden" vineyard, with a rich mouth feel, a spicy acid tingle and lingering finish. Kabinett is the lightest, most delicate style of Riesling in Germany, made from early harvested grapes that are just barely ripe.
