    Winemaker's Notes:

    #62 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2009

    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 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.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Sleek and tangy, showing apricot, lime and mango flavors matched to a lively structure. Shows good harmony and persistence through the finish. Drink now through 2018.

    Good valued Riesling but didn't like the sensation of a slightly carbonated beverage.

    This is an excellent example of a German Mosel. Not too sweet, as they tend to be sometimes and with good fruit.

    hints of lemon and lime, if you like late harvest rieslings you will like this.

    Well-crafted, fruity but dry Riesling well worth the money...and goes with many foods.

    This wine has been getting a lot of attention. If you like slightly sweet Rieslings then this is a good value wine. If you like dry Rieslings - don't waste your time.
