Riesling pairs well with almost any food, which makes it perfect for the diverse set of dishes that tend to end up on a Sunday family dinner plate. It’s also just flat-out delicious to drink on its own.
“Really juicy with a ton of apple and pear character. A very crisp finish. Yes, there is also has some sweetness in there, but the balance is spot-on. An ideal wine for spicy seafood dishes.”
Dr. Loosen?s non-estate 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. Dr. L Riesling is made with fruit that comes exclusively from traditional vineyards with steep slopes and slate soil.
The Dr. Loosen estate has been in the same family for over 200 years. When Ernst Loosen assumed ownership in 1988, he realized that with ungrafted vines averaging 60 years old in some of Germany?s best-rated vineyards, he had the raw materials to create stunningly intense, world-class wines.
