Riesling is a white wine varietal originated from Rhine region, Germany. This grape is used to make sweet, semi-sweet, dry and sparkling wine depending on the ripeness of the fruit and what style the winemaker prefers.
This extremely popular introductory wine embodies the elegant and racy style of classic Mosel Riesling. It is refreshing and fruity, with a fine mineral edge that is typical of the region. The grapes used to make Dr. L come exclusively from traditional vineyards with steep slopes and slate soil. By working closely with a select group of growers on long-term contracts, brothers Ernst and Thomas Loosen are able to ensure excellent quality in every vintage.
This crisp, refreshing Riesling is the dry counterpart to the fruity, off-dry Dr. L Riesling. Together, these two wines represent the entry-level from Dr. Loosen, capturing the elegant and racy characteristics of steep, slate-soil Mosel vineyards at a very reasonable price.
This wine has a brilliant yellow color with green hues. Its intense aroma is a fragrant blend of citrus fruit and passion fruit with a slightly herbal backdrop typical of this variety. On the palate, it is concentrated, with a pleasant acidity that highlights its freshness, firm structure and excellent persistence.
