Wine Review: This very pale straw-colored Riesling from Dr. Loosen opens with a clementine peel and light pineapple bouquet with hints of lime and apricot pit. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with integrated medium plus acidity. The mouthfeel is nicely balanced, very smooth, fresh, and zesty. The flavor profile is lime and saline blend with notes of chalky minerality, white peach and ginger. We also detected hints of white grapefruit and white tea. The finish is dry and refreshing. The Tasting Panel would pair this Riesling with pork schnitzel or with a baked lemon sole. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: A captivating and harmonious dry Riesling from extremely old vines in the "spice garden" vineyard of Ürzig. Ürzig produces wines of a completely unique nature, showcasing the typically exotic fruit flavors of the "spice garden," with a rich texture, gentle acidity and lingering finish. Grosses Gewächs (GG) means "great growth" and is the designation for an estate's best dry wine from a Grosse Lage (grand cru) vineyard. This Riesling GG is from a special parcel of old vines ("alte Reben") that lies directly behind the village and is still referred to by its historical name, Urglück.
