Dr. L Riesling
Dr. L Riesling

The good Doctor comes through again with the 2005 Dr. "L" Riesling from the steep hillsides of the Mosel river valley in south eastern Germany. With fruit purchased around the famous villages of Graach, Bernkastel, and Whelen, this riesling offers the classic Mosel combination of bright tropical fruit paired with lively acidity. "...Loosen’s 2005 Riesling 'Dr. L.' smells sweetly of white peach and honeysuckle, combines subtle creaminess of texture with juicy peach, lime, and tangerine, and lays out a satisfyingly rich yet delicate and invigorating finish in which noticeable sweetness, nevertheless, does not become overbearing. Even more so than in some other recent years, this offers terrific value." - 89 points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate #167 (Oct 2006)
