Details of wine

This crisp, refreshing Riesling is the dry counterpart to the fruity, off-dry Dr. L Riesling. Together, these two wines represent the entry-level from Dr. Loosen, capturing the elegant and racy characteristics of steep, slate-soil Mosel vineyards at a very reasonable price. We call them our "welcome to the Mosel" wines.

Color

Giallo paglierino con riflessi verdolini.

Smell

Al naso presenta intensi profumi fruttati, mela e pesca, seguiti da aromi vegetali e un'ottima vena minerale.

Taste

Fresco e sapido, in bocca ritorna la nota intensa di frutta fino al lungo e speziato finale.

Pairings

Si abbina molto bene con tartine al salmone affumicato, cialde dolci e salate, uova in salsa olandese, al momento dell'aperitivo ma anche capace di esaltare piatti della cucina asiatica come i Noodles o gli Spring Rolls, specialmente se leggermente speziati.

Ernst Loosen was born into a great tradition of German winemaking. Since the Dr. Loosen estate on the Mosel River has been in his family for over 200 years, you’d think it only natural for Ernst to take up the family legacy as a profession. The truth is, though, that as a youngster Ernst was more fascinated by the numerous Roman ruins in the area than by the family vineyards. So he went off to college to study archaeology. In the mid-’80s, however, Ernst was faced with a decision. His father was ready to turn the estate over to the next generation and none of his brothers or sisters were old enough or interested enough to take it on. We could be melodramatic and say that it was time for Ernst to face his destiny, but really it was more of an odd-man-out decision. Happily, as it turns out, Ernst found his true calling among the broken slate of his family’s vineyards rather than the hewn stones of an old Roman ruin.
