Dr. Loosen Dr. L Riesling

Dr. Loosen Riesling embodies the elegant and racy characteristics of steep, slate-soil Mosel vineyards at a very reasonable price. It is a bright, vibrant, fruit-driven wine made with grapes from contracted growers who work very closely with brothers Ernst and Thomas Loosen to achieve excellent quality and superb concentration in every vintage.

The vineyards of Germany's Mosel Valley are characterized by their incredibly steep, south-facing slopes, mineral-rich slate soil and favorable position near the river. Excellent drainage and the heat-retaining quality of the rocky slate soil are also important factors in producing fully ripe, concentrated wines. The combination of these elements results in racy, mineral-inflected Rieslings that are fruity, crisp and very refreshing to drink. This entry-level Loosen Riesling embodies the all of the elegant and racy characteristics of the steep, slate-soil Mosel vineyards.

Dr. Loosen estate has been in the same family for over 200 years. When Ernst Loosen (pronounced loh-zen) 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.

Very Nice Riesling, have been enjoying the Dr. Loosen since discovering it while visiting Hawaii.
