Riesling Mosel Germany
The concept of quality as prescribed by Dr Loosen begins with the vines. Dr L is made from fruit picked off traditionally managed vineyards planted to steep slopes on ancient winegrowing terrains established by the Romans. The entry level into the Dr Loosen range fully expresses the elegant and racy style of classic Mosel Riesling. By working closely with the best growers, Ernst and Thomas Loosen are able to achieve the finest quality every vintage. A perfect pour for lunch, will complement everything from freshly tossed caesar, to seafood and spatchcock.
Dr Loosen produces nothing but Riesling, from traditional slate soil vineyards in Mosel Valley. A full range of Prädikat wines is made from six stellar vineyards. The sites owe their excellent quality to three major factors, exceptional regional climate, the mineral rich slate and volcanic soils, and the incredible age of the estate's ungrafted Riesling vines. These elements are the building blocks of each vineyard's terroir and have long been recognized for their importance in producing outstanding wines. All of Dr. Loosen's six major sites were designated as Erste Lage, equivalent to Grand Cru, in the 1868 Prussian classification of Mosel vineyards which predates the system in Burgundy.
Light yellow colour. On the nose Dr Loosen offers expressions of minerality, citrus and fresh cut apple. The palate is supple and generous, it's all bright fruit and just a touch of sweetness to balance the crisp acidity. Dr. L Riesling is the ideal welcome wine for every gathering, a great partner to spicey cuisine, an excellent choice of aperitif.
