Wine Review: This pale straw-colored Riesling from the Mosel region opens with faint ginger and lime bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with moderate brisk acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced, round and bright. The flavor profile is a lemon-lime and chalky minerality blend with notes of white peach. I also detected hints of ginger and orange zest in the after taste. The finish is semi-sweet and refreshing. This Kabinett level Riesling would pair well with curry chicken skewers. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: A brisk, juicy, low-alcohol Kabinett-style Riesling from ancient Devonian slate soils in the Mosel Valley.v This classic Mosel Kabinett is harvested from cooler, high-elevation parcels owned by Dr. Loosen. The wine is bright and pure with the vibrant white peach fruit and a floral, flinty minerality that is so typical from blue slate. A plush attack on the mid-palate leads to a deliciously firm, delicate finish. This wine makes an elegant aperitif and is an excellent match for seafood, spicy Asian cuisine, and lighter dishes.
