Vintage tasted 2008 Grapes Riesling

Overview Dr. Loosen is one of the most expensive German Riesling producers, regularly overpricing bottles into the hundreds of dollars. Loosen’s value wine, though, is fresh, balanced, and utterly delicious, even though it has less minerality than many of his prestige wines. This bottle should be an easy introduction to German Riesling for the uninitiated.

Nose Our blind tasters loved the complex nose, with its honey, apricot, apple, and a clean metallic scent.

Mouth This wine achieves the classic German balance of honeyed sweetness with zingy, refreshing acidity that leaves your mouth clean and ready for another sip.
