2009 Dr. L Riesling
This is a very characteristic Riesling from the Mosel characterised by a fragrant nose with a hint of honey and green apricot fruit, all of which follow through on the off-dry palate together with leesy, mineral hints.
Refreshing, juicy acidity and a touch of spritz add fine balance – very, very good and dangerously quaffable!
This entry-level Loosen Riesling embodies the elegant and racy characteristics of steep, slate-soil Mosel vineyards at a very reasonable price.
Dr. L comes exclusively from traditional vineyards with steep slopes and slate soil. By working closely with growers on long-term contract, brothers Ernst and Thomas Loosen are able to assure excellent quality in every vintage.
