Wine Review: Off dry and refreshing, this Riesling from Mosel, Germany is a sparkling medium straw color with green flecks, and has inviting aromas of pear, honeysuckle, pineapple, ripe melon, and wet river stone. On the palate, it is clean and balanced, with bright, plus acidity and medium bodied. It has a supple mouthfeel and is very easy drinking. I found flavors of green apple, stony minerality, ripe honeydew melon, lime, and ash. The finish is crisp and lingers for quite a while. Pair with spicy Cajun shrimp gumbo. – Mark

Winemaker Notes: This sibling of the classic Dr. L Riesling captures the brilliant, mineral character of the Mosel in a versatile off-dry style. This wine is a very food-friendly alternative to the regular Dr. L bottling. It is produced in the off-dry "feinherb" style, making it extremely versatile with a broad range of dishes. It is a bright, vibrant, fruit-driven wine made with grapes from contracted growers throughout the Mosel River valley who work very closely with brothers Ernst and Thomas Loosen to achieve excellent quality and superb concentration in every vintage.
