Dan Carkner rated this wine as 100/100 with the following review:

Bright straw. Brilliant. Orchard fruit with pungent blossoms in full bloom. Chalky minerality with some beeswax and kerosene. Fresh cut grass and clover conjure images of mountain meadows with a hint of smoke in the distance. Honeycrisp Apple and baked pear are confirmed on the palate with vibrant acidity balancing this slightly off dry wine. A medium complexity nose leads to a fairly straightforward palate with tart apple, minerality and honey lingering through the finish. Very drinkable and good value at $13.95
Barbara Addelson rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Nice slightly sweeter Riesling, great with potato and cheese stuffed pierogies.




Natalie's Review

Dr. Loosen Dr. L Riesling 2011, Q.B.A., Mosel, Germany: Love it! There's simply no better value on the shelf. Lime blossom gorgeous. The alcohol is refreshingly low, yet this is no wimpy wine: it's packed with flavour. Perfect as an aperitif or companion to many dishes. Some terrific white pear and lime blossom on the finish. Try it with just about anything, but start with seafood. Drink: 2012-2016. 599274 8.50% D 750 mL  $13.95 Score: 91/100. July 6, 2013 Best Value White Wine. Splendid Salad Wine  Full Review

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
