Loosen Bros 2008 Riesling "Dr L" - 89pts
Availability: Widely available. BCLDB stores.
Date Tasted: June 13th, 2010
Tasting Notes: An off-dry, food-friendly, crowd-pleasing Riesling from fruit grown in the steep, slate soil vineyards of the Mosel valley by top producer Dr. Loosen (Loosen Bros.). The nose offers aromas of stone fruit, lemon and mango with lively floral notes. The palate offers flavours of Newton apples, Asian pears and minerals with tangy citrus acidity balanced nicely by the sweetness from the concentrated fruit. This is a good quality, medium-bodied wine with a persistent finish that shines when enjoyed with food. Drink now through 2013.
