Finally back in stock after selling out last year, Dr Loosen’s Estate Riesling is a superb introduction to this highly respected producer based in the Mosel region of Germany. The subtle off dry finish is balanced with vibrant and refreshing acidity with a slight spritz, it’s the perfect summer aperitif and moderate in alcohol at 8.5%. Packed with orchard fruits including elderflower, citrus fruit, apple, pear and the signature minerality that wines from this region are renowned for, this is recommended for anyone looking to reacquaint or introduce themselves with this sometimes mythical grape variety.
Dr Loosen have been producing wines in the Mosel region of Germany for over 200 years. Ernst ‘Ernie’ Loosen inherited the estate in 1988 and has focussed on continuing to passionately drive standards and creatively push both his winery and the region as a whole forward. Through restricting crop size, reducing the use of chemical fertilization, strict selection of fruit and minimal intervention in the cellar, Dr Loosen are creating superb wines which reflect the unique area in which they’re made – the incredibly steep, slate slopes which line the Mosel River are some of the most dramatic backdrops for winemaking in the world! This is an easy drinking wine in its own right but also pairs superbly with Asian or lightly spiced dishes. 8.5% ABV.
