This is a good wine for the dollar, with good acidity balancing a touch of sweetness.
Beloved by the wine trade it might be, but many of us have a narrow vision of what a “good” and typical Riesling ought to be. For example, my preconceived idea of top Rieslings is razor sharp acidity, petrol aromas and residual sugar.
Bright, complex, and creamy, this Grosses Gewächs (great growth) is Loosen's best from this grand cru vineyard.
Sweet pear and apple, backed by sour/bitter lime peel, are the dominant flavors on the palate from this German Grosse Lage (grand cru) vineyard.
Terrific brightness zings across the palate.
